THIS THREAD IS a collection of links for all those who played journey once or twice and got hooked and searching for more information about the game:
White Robe anyone?
- --> How to get your White Robe White Robe anyone?
- --> Guide:_Your_first_journey Follow up guides for the real newcomer (those are also providing videos and more links)
- --> Robins guide for Newcomers How to journey, (some spoilers..)
- --> Basic connection video Video on meetups between specific persons/a friend: Also explains what to do, to not cause disconnects.
The PC version seems to have some problems with connections, but it is confirmed that "theoretically" the PS rules apply on PC too. Like distance or hitting triggers.
The community of journey is active since PS3. There are many people that got the game now on 3 platforms and i would call em experts. So if you got questions dont hesitate to ask at one of the 3 „main platforms“:
Discord: discord.gg/83QunNN, please tell us on discord that you come from the forum!! :)
Allthough the trophies are not on the PC version, its still good to try to accomplish them. It will help to learn the levels and its a nice feeling to show them to others, even if they know about it.
Example: on the way through pink desert you visit the flower, chirp and touch it "saying hello" and fly on.. :)
Some will show you little secrets (if you manage to find them, like the Ancestor-trophy) and one gives an actual treat, see white robe).
„I want to get in contact with my companions“
Its important that you remember the signs/symbols when they chirp. A companion has the same symbol during a journey. So if you lose your companion and find "another" later, but they got the same chirp-symbol, its the same person (as long as you dont chapter select).
When you had an awesome companion, its an old tradition to thank them, tell why this companion made your journey so special.
Possibilities to say thank you:
• Direct Message:
PC version: Write the name of your Companion into "search for friends" at the epic launcher. If they accept and when they are online, you will be able to message them.
Playstation: on PS3 you can just write them a message, go to recently played with list and open the profile. On PS4 many people got privacy options activated so you will not be able to write them.
• Social Media:
the discord: discord.gg/83QunNN channgel #ingame-meetings
Forum: thatgamecompanyfan.boards.net/thread/4/journey-thank-yous and also apologies: thatgamecompanyfan.boards.net/thread/54/journey-apologies
leave your epicgames name/ps id here: thatgamecompanyfan.boards.net/thread/10/member-psn-ids or search for a companions name
„whats with all those abbreviations?“
Since the game is rather old, some common terms developed and are used by the community. Please look up the glossary:
„Someone lead me out of bounds and i liked it“ – „i saw someone flying real high /fast, how to do that?“
There are many tricks you can do with the game, such as fancy flying or glitching through a wall, entering even more exciting levels… Enter at your own risk though.
We also recommend searching for YT videos, many links are already provided in the forum and wiki.
Here are some links for your research on the „journey extras“:
