Journey has released on Steam, and does not come alone. 

Journey is now available for Steam. The game is currently 25% off, dropping down from $14.99 to $11.24. The sale will last until July 9th. For a limited time, those that purchase Journey will also receive Flower, another title from the title's developer, thatgamecomapny. 

Journey will also be available in the Annapurna Interactive Collection. This collection comes with a wealth of games, including What Remains of Edith Finch, Sayonara Wild Hearts, Florence, and If Found.... The collection is currently running for $142.33, down from its normal cost of $161.99. 

Journey originally released for the PlayStation 3 back in 2012. The game has been remembered for its stunning visuals, as well as its ambient music score. The game tasks players to follow a beacon of light in the distance, taking them on a unique adventure through a desert and caves. The game also features a unique multiplayer aspect. When two travelers meet, they cannot speak to each other directly. They will be able to make musical sounds at one another, but for the most part they will travel together in silence. Players will never know who it was that they traveled with, as the game does not give names, even if they thoroughly enjoyed each others company. 

The free game that players will receive when they purchase Journey, Flower, released back in 2013 for the PlayStation 4. The game utilizes the simple gameplay and accessible controls that the game's developer, thatgamecompany, has become known for. The game has players take on the wind, and interact with their environment. Players start in empty settings, but spread flowers wherever they go, creating beautiful landscapes in an otherwise barren world. Like Journey, the game features stunning visuals, which get more beautiful the further into the level you go. 

Journey is available now for PC and PlayStation 4.
