This week on Kotaku Splitscreen, I talked with composer Austin Wintory (Journey, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate) about what it was like auditioning to be the composer for Star Trek: Discovery, and why he’s glad he did it even though he didn’t get the gig.
Four years after the release of Journey, thatgamecompany has begun taking the wraps off their next project. On Twitter, creative director Jenova Chen revealed that thatgamecompany’s next game—which they’re currently calling “thatnextgame”—will be “a game about giving.” It will involve candles, unless it doesn’t.

Do you like zombies? Bikinis? Fountains of blood? Have you completely no shame? Then have I got the game for you.

Journey's coming to the PS4 later this year, along with cult PS3 fave The Unfinished Swan, according to a post on the official PlayStation blog. A line in the YouTube video's description mentions cross-buy: "Get more for your money with Cross-Buy - purchase this game for PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 and get the…
