Acclaimed PlayStation Title Journey Now Available On Apple iOS

Take Journey on your next journey.

Comments

Thatgamecompany's critically acclaimed Journey is now available on Apple devices, and it's going for a song. The game has been released on the App Store for $5, published through Annapurna Interactive. It uses touch controls for movement, camera controls, and pinging.

Journey was first released for PlayStation 3 in 2012, and has been ported to multiple platforms in the years since. Most recently it arrived on PC through the Epic Games Store.

Journey was thatgamecompany's follow-up to Flower, a similarly meditative game. It follows an unnamed hooded protagonist in a quest to reach the top of a mountain. It featured online functionality by introducing other players who would seamlessly find themselves alongside you in a given location, and you could choose to take the path alongside them.

It received accolades upon release, and currently stands at a 92% average on GameSpot sister site Metacritic. It is one of a rare handful of games to receive a 10/10 from GameSpot.

"It is possible that Journey will not move you. In such a case, it is simply a beautiful game with a glorious soundtrack, grounded by a wistful cello melody later threaded through a warm quilt of winds and strings. The chance you might be swept away, however, makes it worth plunging your feet into the warm sand," Kevin VanOrd wrote in GameSpot's review. "Journey offers you comfort. It gives you companionship in a lovely but forsaken world. It gives you reason to dream even when facing loss."
