Who doesn’t want to wake up to news this good?
Darling, NPC’s, we recently got the announcement that thatgamecompany is working on a new project, currently under the working title “thatnextgame”. Personally, I cannot wait for more info on this. They’ve created games unlike any other.
I don’t know if you’ve ever had the opportunity to play their transcendent trio: Journey, Flower, and flOw but they’re a vision of hope at what video games could be and what level of emotional response they can cultivate in a player. They’re masterpieces of simplicity and minimalism. The archetypal Journey made to my Top 10 favorite games of all time and is likely to abide there for some time. It’s also one of the highest rated games on this blog.
“thatnextgame” is apparently a game about giving. It’s slated to come out in 2017. My sincerest wish is thatgamecompany gives us more details soon!
Are you excited for “thatnextgame”? Did you enjoy any of thatgamecompany’s previous delights? Which is your favorite?
