Rekrul wrote:Well, it kind of sucks that that all the effort was put into the consoles and that the Flash version is nothing more than an incomplete demo on a system it's not even available for. There should be some kind of notice on it so that people who don't have a Sony system know not to waste their time playing it.

If it wasn't for Sony:
thatgamecompany wouldn't exist.
flOw would never have been anything other than part of (key word is part) Jenova Chen's thesis statement for graduating from college.

Journey would not have been made.
Many people would never have been touched emotionally by games.
And many more people would still believe that games can never be considered as art.

Amish_Gramish wrote:Journey is the last game of thatgamecompany that's part of the three game deal with Sony, so just look out for any news regarding their fourth game and what it's going to be on. Who knows, it might be on the PS3 again, the 360, the Wii, the PC, or even some crazy futuristic video game console.

Every single modern game console forces you to primarily use your left hand to control the game. I've never seen the PS3 version of FlOw or read anything about it, but there's no doubt in my mind that you steer your creature using either the D-Pad (left side) or the left thumbstick, with absolutely no option to use the right one for steering. This is the way every single console game is programmed.
Trying to play games this way is incredible awkward for me. I've tried to get used to it ever since the NES came out and I can't. It's like asking you to write with the wrong hand.
Gamers today will swear up and down that gamepads are designed for right-handed players. Give them an NES and an NES Advantage joystick and they will proclaim that it's a right-handed controller while happily using their left hand on the stick. Hand these same people a third-party Atari compatible joystick that is usable with either hand and virtually all of them will grip the stick with their right hand. For some reason, I seem to be the only person in the world who sees the contradiction in this. Strangely, you never hear left-handed players complain that game controllers don't have the movement controls on the right. In fact, left handed players of retro games will often complain that they can't use the stock Atari joysticks because they're meant for right handed people. I'm confused, if it's supposedly natural for right-handed people to control a game's movement with their left hand, shouldn't it be natural for left-handed people to control a game's movement with their right hand? I'm also the only person in the world who sees this contradiction as well.

Why not produce a real version for computers? Not everyone owns game consoles.
