Twilight's Journey by verulence Twilight's Journey by verulence
NATG Day 2 - Pony walking or on a journey. Got a head start this time! Take that time! And sleep... Ah well. Best game ever.

Also besides being for the training ground this is a direct take from my own Journey experience. Basically right off the bat I was greeted by a rare white cloaked player who proceeded to show me (well attempt to show me) all the secret locations and symbols. I say attempt because I usually was sucking at life and not going the right way. And so I drew Twilight as me; short-scarfed and failing at flying. Surprisingly he stuck with me through it all to the very beautiful end. I couldn't have asked for a better playthrough. There were laughs, there were scares, there were random emotes that apparently don't even exist, and there were tears. So many tears. I never thought I could get so emotionally attached to a speechless, faceless, player character in a video game. Critics who say video games can't be art are just being idiots and thinking opinions can be facts. This game truly is art. It was to me anyway. If you haven't played it and you or a friend has a Playstation 3 I highly recommend it. Do yourself a favor and cry.

Enjoy~

There were a LOT of "Journey the game" references, but this is one of the TWO that I took a look at because:  The look on Celestia's face is priceless.  and The coloring is great.  Good job!

If ya haven't tried it I HIGHLY recommend it! It's one of the most beautiful game/coop experiences out there! If you're into more artistic approaches of course.

I've seen some images and footage of it, and it does look like a artistically inspired and beautiful looking game. My fear is that it could be too much for my poor laptop though. I may need to poke around to confirm/deny my assumptions.

And what's the game-play like? From what minimal bits I've seen I'm tempted to say some kind of platformer. Though I suspect it could also be a puzzle game.

Sorry to say it's only on PS3 as the kind fellow said below. Gameplay... not even sure how to describe it. Maybe it's sort of puzzle like... at least thats the closest I could think of. Adventure puzzle? For me it was seriously like my own little Zen garden of sand and emotion. There were no words spoken. No mission prompts. Only the journey you make for yourself. Coop is special as there is no chat or anything and people may come and go anonymously. You don't find out who you played with till you finish. You could go through the whole thing alone, with a single partner or have met multiple different people throughout. Your only form of communication is pressing circle which makes a little noise and is a game mechanic for absorbing "flight cloth" for your travels. It's more like a meditation that a game almost.

Ah.

Well not having a PS3 I'm sort of cut off from that. So, there's that...

Because QWOP is notoriously difficult, and Twilight tripped.
