Journey Creator on Next Game’s Biggest Breakthrough

Sky, the next game from Journey developer thatgamecompany, will charge players in a unique way, which studio co-founder Jenova Chen believes will be “biggest breakthrough” of the upcoming social adventure game. “I think many people will be surprised how this game makes money,” Chen said on the latest episode of our monthly interview show IGN Unfiltered. “I think my biggest breakthrough or innovation on this game is about how it actually charges people.

Why You Should Care About The World Ends With You

In the late ’00s, Nintendo’s ridiculously-popular DS handheld was a hotbed for creative, quirky games. Many developers were gleefully experimenting with the system’s trademark dual-screens, and it was in the middle of this zeitgeist that Square-Enix took a chance on a unique action-RPG titled The World Ends With You.
