As you may have heard, Journey was recently shown at Austin’s annual Fantastic Fest!
The game was featured on several stations at the Highball Lounge – which is just next to the Alamo Drafthouse (where the festival takes place). The Sony portion of this event featured several of PSN’s upcoming indie releases – including Retro/Grade, Okabu, Papo y Yo, PixelJunk 4am and Closure. And the Fantastic Arcade showcased even more indie greatness!
It was great to have this opportunity to share the game to the Austin public – and to host our third fan meet-up. We shared the game with some fantastic people, and also met developers from Junction Point, Arkane, BioWare, and several other local studios. Thanks to everyone who came out – especially folks who drove long distances to come and play the game!
A heartfelt thanks goes out to the staff of the Highball and of course, the organizers of Fantastic Fest & it’s Arcade showcase. Their hospitality and excitement about Journey was visible in every aspect of the event. If you live in/near Austin, definitely put it on your calendar for next year!
So, it’s been a year since we posted the last piece of fan art on the blog, as we’ve been posting them on our Facebook and Twitter pages instead. Here are some highlights of the past few years, but there are plenty more where that came from! Check out our Facebook Fan Art album and the deviantART Fan Art group to see even more amazing fan art!
As seen above, we’re starting out with a Journey costume made for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion by forum user Natterforme. Even though his computer crashed, he still remade and finished the costume for public use! As a mod, it’s always a work in progress, so keep looking at the thread here if there are any more updates.
