Journey 5th Anniversary Nostalgia Event - Monday 13 March

Discussions on our third PS3 game, Journey. What do you think of our latest game?

Journey 5th Anniversary Nostalgia Event - Monday 13 March

Postby raisin » Sat Feb 04, 2017 7:56 am

Monday 13th March marks the 5th Anniversary of the US launch of Journey. :shock: It would be a shame not to mark this anniversary in some way, so how about an Event on that day?

Thoughts?

(Last year we had a 4th Anniversary First Run Nostalgia event - thread at http://www.thatgamecompany.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5984)

UPDATED WITH PROPOSED EVENT FORMAT AND TIMING

Journey 5th Anniversary Nostalgia Event

To mark the 5th Anniversary of the US release of Journey there will be a First Run Nostalgia Event at 21.30UTC/17.30 EST* on Monday 13th March.

* Times adjusted to take into account the start of US Summer Time on the day before.

As it is a weekday and there will undoubtedly be work and other constraints, I’m proposing a single time for PS4 and PS3 Journeyers that hopefully gives most US and European players a decent chance of attending. To maximise nostalgia I'm suggesting using a PS3 where available, but either console will be great.

I'll be jumping down onto the sands as a PS3 1st run reddie, and hope others will do so, but no rules. Come dressed as you want (but full whites obviously can't meet a 1st reddie), do what you want, just follow the normal Journey/Forum philosophy of being sensitive to your Companion's style - you may meet a real newbie!

All you have to do is jump down from the Broken Bridge entrance at the Event start time with no spans built and see who you get.

And enjoy!



Please advertise this on your Twitch streams or whatever, and let's make this another gargantuan get together.

After a couple of consultations here is my proposal for the 5th Anniversary Nostalgia Event:

Good news. Hope to nab you.

So have I got the date wrong or did you get an early copy?

There was an early release of a week on the 7th. I sat on it for half a day and took my first Journey in the wee hours of the 8th. Had to make up for that late start by Journeying non-stop for the next 3 years. :)

But yeah, the official release date was the 13th of March, 2012.

I made another flyer for the event. ((As usual, if others have, too, I don't mean to step on anyone's scarf.)) I posted it to my Instagram. ....So, if you need a flyer, either nab it here, or there. It's well-tagged.

ps: I also put it on my Twitch profile. :)

That's brilliant. Thanks so much. TGC retweeted stoicmom's tweet so the word is getting out.

SpeakItAloud --- I don't think you'll play alone! There should be a bunch of people there.

Stoicmom. Either drag the image off the forum, or off my Twitch channel, onto your desktop, and then add it to your Twitch wall by uploading it with the "Edit Panels" option.
If you need a higher resolution image I can provide it, but either of these should work.

Thanks to everyone who is being so helpful.

For those who are more techie than me, when you are publicising the event can you try to get across that to join you need to jump down from the Broken Bridge entrance at the start time, and not to pre-build any Bridge spans. Those who are not familiar with the Forum events might not be aware of how it works.
