Review: The moment I started the game, I knew I was in for a ride. Everything in this game screams Journey, and of course, after finishing it, I found out that Journey’s art director is also behind this! It’s an absolutetly stunning game, there’s moments where it takes your breath away. The music, just as in Journey, ties perfectly with what’s happening in the game, and is beautiful. Unfortunately, its EXTREMELY short. I finished the game in under 2 hours and I did a little bit of exploring looking for collectibles and such, and for 20$… well, it’s a bit pricy, but I guess it was worth it!
My Score: 9/10
