I want to share with you my most wonderful, magical, and satisfycing esperience in Journey. It shows that beautiful things really are everywhere.
A russian guy (white cloak) helped me get my white cloak that way. Now I am a white cloak... I was so greatful, but I could not say thanks properly as I didn`t know russian...But he and I became friends and still play other games together. I thanked him shortly after... And (It resulsts that he did knew english) he said something that made a tear fell from my eye from the impression that he wanted me to do such thing: He told me that his only desire was that I taught his knowdlage to someone else...And that I never forgot what he said, and that he wanted me to help many others in real life as well. I said yes, very moved by the scene. I asked him to do the same, and he promissed he would. That way, I helped another player do the same.
What happened next was...beautiful and amazing.
The player sent me a message saying thanks for all the help.. she (yes, a she) said that she was so moved by my kindness in the game (I helped her since the very start of the game, waited for her, showed her all the ways and secrets), that she felt that now, as a white robe...She wanted to help others in Journey do the same. She said that she recorded a gameplay for herself...not expecting me to come. (A year later she said "Somewhere in my computer there stills being a recording of that" I smiled.) I told her that my only desire was that she teached the same thing to others and was kind to everyone in real life. She agreed... as waterfalls of tears began coming out of my eyes all the way to my cheeks.
The russian, that american girl, and I, are still friends in the PSN. We have a chatbox as a trio now.
Me too. I help anyone who doesn't have a white cloak, get one. It's really fun to watch them chirp and get excited over hidden treasures in the game. I try to make note of everyone I travel with. Even if I never speak to them, ever. XD
It's from a game called Journey, for the Playstation 3. It's a very beautiful game, and it's inspired a lot of great artwork. As far as it's meaning, i'm not really sure. It's about a hero's journey, but i think there is probably more meaning to it that i can't explain. I hope that helps.
