Playtest thatgamecompany’s Journey Next Week in L.A.

56 0

Since popping our heads out of the sand to announce Journey at E3 this year, we have been deep in the throes of development. But now I’m peeking up again to see if any of you might be interested in giving us feedback on the game here in Los Angeles!

Journey: Mountain

As you might already know, we have an extremely iterative development process, which means that although we are still building out the game, we like to get feedback from players early so we can incorporate it into the final version. This is a great opportunity to see the game as it progresses, and get a look behind the curtain of game development. Also, we’d love to have folks from this community help us! Here’s the info:

Evening of November 19th, 2010

Requirements to participate are:

  • Be between the ages of 18 and 35.
  • Be an active PSN game player. We want people who are familiar with PSN games, visit the Store, and download games as a part of their PlayStation life.
  • Live in Los Angeles, and have reliable transportation to the playtest in Santa Monica.

Journey: Bridges

In case you missed our E3 announcement, Journey is our latest game we’re working on with SCEA’s Santa Monica Studio, following flOw and Flower for PS3. With Journey we are taking a departure from our previous two games, introducing a human-like playable character, and a narrative that is much more like an adventure. All the while we are aiming to keep the emotion and beauty that our previous projects have become known for.

If you are interested and qualified, please send an email with your name, age, address, PSN ID, and contact number to If you are selected, you will receive an email with confirmation and the specific details.

  • Great! this can be a spiritual successor to Shadow of the Colossus. Speaking of Shadow of the Colossus, Sony needs to put out an HD version of it on the PS3. Yes. HD SotC. Better graphics than they already were. AAAAAAAAAND trophy support.
