Journey's Visual Style Is Absolutely Beautiful.

We're struggling to focus on Jenova Chen's words though, because the gameplay footage that's been wrapped around it is just straight-up stunning.

Persevere and you'll pick up on Chen talking about the Journey's concept and multiplayer functions. While the game takes place in an online world, Chen explains that players will be given the choice as to whether they want to work together or not. The objective of the game is to simply reach the peak of a mountain obscured in the distance. W'ere sure there's a metaphor in there.

Observe the game (and interview) in all its glory after the jump. flower narrowly missed out on our game of the year spot in 2009, and we wouldn't be surprised if Journey came equally close this year.
