Argh! Cut it out, Journey soundtrack! I'm trying to look cool here, and you keep giving me goosebumps and making me stare wistfully into the middle distance!


For a nice relaxing bit of listening at the start of tonight's Kotaku Melodic, I thought I'd share one of my favorite of composer Austin Wintory's pieces from the insanely beautiful new PS3 game Journey.

This is a game that I really, truly loved, and which I have come to admire more and more the farther I get from the first time I played it.

This track, apparently called "Apothesis," plays from… well, who cares where in the game it plays. It plays during the journey. Wintory himself is so cool that he actually went onto the YouTube page for each of the uploads of his song to thank people for sharing his music, and to assure them that the actual album would be available for purchase soon.

When it is, I'll be sure to let you know. Though I don't even know if I could sit around listening to this with my friends without getting all emotional and making a fool out of myself.

Okay, just listen to it.
