Journey was an award winning multiplayer adventure game for PlayStation 3. First released in 2012 it quickly became one of the most fascinating and beautiful games on the PS3. Now the game makes a surprise appearance on iOS for iPhone and iPad users.
The award winning game takes the player on an engaging journey through a beautifully crafted 3D world. The game is a mix between traditional platformers as well as intriguing puzzle games. This unique mix of features and game genres made Journey so very popular in the PlayStation 3 era.
Journey also features a native online multiplayer experience where you will randomly meet other players from all over the world. There is no communication other than simple emotes which makes helping or receiving help from other players even more interesting.
Now with the release on mobile, players will be able to revisit or even enjoy this gem of a game in the palm of our hands.
Journey is now available on iOS, you can grab it on the Apple App Store for $4.99. Android users may have to wait a little longer, we have reached out to the developers for more clarification when the game might come to other mobile platforms.

Journey iOS announcment
Sky looks and feels quite a bit like Journey, but with more people. Up to 8 players can join a session through their smartphone or tablet. These groups feel big, but not massive; busy but not totally unwieldy. There’s a logic to their size: Chen hopes Sky will be a game entire families play together.
Of course, he clarifies, people can also play alone. Some puzzles require 8 players to cooperate, but Chen recognizes that sometimes collaborating with seven friends can be a bit like “wrangling cats.”
I doubt anybody will want to play alone though. Sky recaptures that beautiful mix of playfulness and performance of its predecessor. I can’t yell over voice chat; instead I must communicate with audible pings and gestures.
