Peaceful desert adventure Journey has made its way to Steam

After years of PlayStation exclusivity and one year of Epic exclusivity, Journey's travels finally brought it to Steam today. Developed by Thatgamecompany, Journey is a beautiful little adventure in which you play as a small cloaked figure trekking through a desert, with puzzles dotted about in your way.

Take another Journey when it comes to Steam in June

Thatgamecompany's lovely desert wandering game is floating through another barrier. It first arrived on PC via the Epic Store last summer and, as many games are wont to do when that exclusivity period is up, Journey will land on Steam in June.

PlayStation darling Journey arrives on PC

One of the few remaining console exclusives left to make me wish I had a PlayBox, Thatgamecompany's gorgeous Journey, launched on PC today.

Players steer a tumbling swirl of flower petals around an obstacle course of hills, wind turbines and…

While PC games have been art since 2013 and BioShock Infinite, video games have actually been art on consoles for a whole year longer thanks to Journey. Thatgamecompany's wander 'em up about robed figures sliding and gliding through a mysterious desert of ruins won hearts and naive declarations in 2012. I mean, it is chuffing lovely. It really is. Beautiful and affecting stuff. I am…

Play with perspective in psychedelic puzzler Mirror Drop

Some say that the arms race for graphical fidelity is only good for chasing photo-realism. Mirror Drop by former ThatGameCompany developer Ian Lilley is a stunning showcase of the kinds of borderline-mystical tricks a modern GPU can pull, all while delivering a mesmerising and engaging little puzzle game. You've just got to roll a ball from A to B by shifting gravity, simple enough, but…

To Boycott PAX Or Not To Boycott PAX?

Editor's note: RPS will no longer be covering PAX events. We believe that the values of the company operating those events conflict with ours, and as such we can no longer endorse their actions by providing coverage of PAX events. An explanation of this can be read here. However, others argue that attending can be an effective way to respond to the company's poor behaviour,…
