ThatGameCompany has always been very open about the influence of Team Ico’s work on their games and in Journey it definitely shows. Aside from being a visually beautiful game, the set up is thematically similar to Shadow of the Colossus, but much simpler. The opening tilt up to the illuminated mountain is the only direction or instruction you receive in the game as to Journey’s overall purpose. With that one camera tilt you are sent on your way with no explanation or exposition.
