One of the most startling things about Journey is its art. The scale of the world, the familiarity of the universe contrasted with how alien it feels. Thatgamecompany is releasing an art book, which goes in depth into the processes that go into creating a universe like Journey’s, and to go along with that announcement the team has released a short documentary. If you loved Journey, this is a must watch. The book will most likely also be a must buy.
The book itself is written and designed by Matt Nava, Journey’s Art Director. The book features the hand drawn pictures, and early renders you may have come to expect from such books, but also allows readers to scan tablets or smartphones to unlock animated 3D augmented reality models straight from the game, which sounds sort of clever and awesome.
