Good morning PlayStation nation! I just wanted to stop by and pass on an exciting piece of news for those who’ve been following thatgamecompany‘s acclaimed adventure, Journey. After winning numerous awards worldwide we are bringing Journey Collector’s Edition to Europe due to popular demand.
Available from today on PlayStation Store, priced at €19.99/£15.99, Journey Collector’s Edition is a compilation showcasing the work of thatgamecompany. In addition to Journey, it also includes the studio’s other creations Flower and flOw. These are the titles that made the studio’s name and undoubtedly deserve a play. The simplicity of flOw and the beauty of Flower will capture gamers’ attention in just the same way that Journey did.
In addition to these three titles, the set also includes the following extras:
- 30-minute behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of Journey
- Creator commentary playthroughs of all three games
- Three exclusive mini-games from thatgamecompany
- Concept art and screenshot galleries for all three games
- Original soundtracks for all three games
- PS3 dynamic themes and wallpapers
- Official game trailers and developer diary videos
This compilation will give fans the feeling of stepping into one of the most creative studios on the planet and witnessing their unique creative process in action. You’ll get the opportunity to hear what the games’ creators thought and felt all the way through the development of these inspirational titles.
The three never-before-seen mini-games are the fruits of a process that makes sure the studio stays creative – the 24 hour game jam. As the name suggests, it’s a 24-hour coding session where, starting from a blank canvas, team members try and make a game from the ground up in just one day.
For the first time ever, thatgamecompany’s mini-games Gravediggers, Duke War!!, and Nostril Shot, will be available to play outside of the studio. The games are all multiplayer so sit down with a friend and see who can figure out the controls first to get the early advantage!
The compilation will be launched on the store today, Wednesday 17th April, but for those who still enjoy physical goods, don’t fret! It will also be coming out on Blu-ray later this year. It will be hitting the shelves this summer, with added DLC to justify the wait. Exclusive to the physical version will be PSN avatars, including never before released Journey and Flower avatars.
So sit back and enjoy the Journey, it’s going to be great.
