Happy 7th birthday, thatgamecompany! What an incredible year it’s been, full of many wonderful reasons to celebrate. Here’s a recap of how far we’ve come since our last birthday:
Thanks to the many players who continue to pour out their support, keeping us inspired through their letters, music, art, and cosplay costumes. The response to Journey continues to overwhelm us, and we feel so lucky to have so many players touched by our work.
Journey has been recognized with over 120 industry honors in categories spanning Audio, Design, Innovation, Art, Online Multiplayer, and more. Of those, Journey earned 33 awards for Overall Game of the Year among games in all genres and platforms.

Finally, we’ve decided to have a reprint of the Koko/Glyph shirt. If this run sells well enough, we’ll continue to print up more of this shirt:

It’s been a long time coming, and I’m glad to make the formal announcement today!
We currently don’t have licensing from Sony to sell flOw, Flower, and Journey merchandise, but for now you can buy official thatgamecompany merch for the first time! We’ll add more products as time goes by, so keep an eye out on the store or our Facebook and Twitter pages, or our Forums, to see when we add more products.
We only have one product available at this time, but we are also including some awesome bonuses with every shirt order! (Click the “More” button to see the bonuses.)
The store is owned by thatgamecompany and operated by thatgamecompany’s Community Manager, Aaron Grommesh (the guy who wrote this post).
We are just a few weeks away from launch and I’m here to unveil the Trophies that you can look forward to collecting during your Journey. In a few short weeks, you will be able to earn all 14 trophies, a few of which fans of thatgamecompany games will be sure to recognize. Be warned: the Trophy list below could contain spoilers!
As we venture closer to the game’s release on March 13th, we’ll be bringing more news and updates, as well as sharing the insights thatgamecompany had in creation this one-of-a-kind interactive experience. We hope you are as excited about the upcoming release as we are, and I look forward to seeing you online!
Robin Hunicke and Kellee Santiago went to Germany to speak at GDC Europe and Gamescom and to present Journey to the European press and fans. At Gamescom, Kellee spoke about the next ten years of gaming on a panel with Sony executives and other famous developers and Robin spoke about the history of Journey.
One of the highlights of the trip was the TGC Community Meetup held during Gamescom. With just a few days’ notice of the event, about a dozen people came to the event. You can see most of the attendees in the picture above.
