The Perfect Journey
8 March 2012 | by BRFyFasanSee all my reviews

This is not only a game. This is pure art. Simply one of the most beautiful games I've ever played.

The relaxing atmosphere, the ambient music, the beautiful graphics, the smart gameplay.. everything is put together so perfectly. Actually a game you can combine doing yoga and meditation as well.

The gameplay is easy, and you can finish the game in about one hour and a half if you just play it straightforward and know how to do the puzzles. However there are much to explore and also hidden objects to find, and the best thing about this game is the joy you'll feel when floating around the desert not worrying about anything else in life.

One of the best things about this game is also the possibility to meet up with other random players characters, and you can choose to either ignore or co-operate with them. You'll not know who they are until you've finished the game. I appreciate the developers to concentrate on the gameplay instead of scorekeeping, statistics etc.

Floating through the temple with the sunlight in the background and flying up the mountains through the rivers and then walking into the white light in the end were some of the best moments!

If you've played Flow and Flower, you know what to expect from this game. I'm really looking forward to what 'thatgamecompany' comesup with next... it seems they can't fail!

I can't recommend this game enough.
