This is really one of the most beautiful soundtracks I've ever heard. Sometimes serenely ambient, sometimes bouncily frolicking, everything about it just makes me feel so inspired. I envy everyone with a PS3.
I knew I wanted to make an album cover of some sort, so I snooped around the internet, looking for good wallpapers to start from. Eventually I found this [link] which was both large enough (oh, proper resolution! how I love you), and exactly the image I was looking for. I was originally planning on just doing a crop – the game is pretty enough, honestly. Adding any more, I thought, would just make it look worse. Unfortunately though, the text was too large for the image's height to make a proper square. So I built out from the sides. I thought it would be nice to somehow incorporate the designs on the pilgrim's clothes into the outside, so I tried to recreate the first layer using squares.
Hopefully I haven't completely ruined the beauty of the game.
This was a piece of fan art that I did while I was waiting for the game to be released. It was originally supposed to look like stained glass, but now it sorta looks like a mosaic; either way I am happy with the result.
DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY FEELS I HAVE FOR THIS GAME? (Journey, PS3) SO MANY FEELS THAT I CAN NOT SHARE CAUSE NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE PLAYED IT?
In all seriousness, if you have a ps3, you are doing yourself a disservice by not playing this. It only takes like 2-4 hours and is one of the greatest examples of what games have to offer as a medium that nothing else can. You cannot recreate this experience and these feelings in any other medium, not movies or books. You can take a lot of games and strip out the fighting and just string the cut scenes together into a movie or rewrite it into a comic or something but with Journey, it's just not possible. You owe it to yourself to try it if you haven't yet.
