Created as a collaboration between the University of Southern California's Game Innovation Lab and the American video artist Bill Viola, The Night Journey is an experimental art game that uses both game and video techniques to tell the story of an individual’s journey towards enlightenment. The game is now available for both PC/MAC and Playstation 4.
The game begins in the center of a mysterious landscape on which darkness is falling. There is no one path to take, no single goal to achieve, but the player’s actions will reflect on themselves and the world, transforming and changing them both. If they are able, they may slow down time itself and forestall the fall of darkness. If not, there is always another chance; the darkness will bring dreams that enlighten future journeys.
