Why Thatgamecompany nearly fell apart after releasing Journey – and what’s next for the studio

EDGE: "It might not have been crowned our Game Of The Year 2012 – that particular prize went to Dishonored – but Journey seems to have scooped nearly every other accolade in the past year. Critically adored around its release, it has since been festooned with a staggering number of awards; it claimed five gongs at the BAFTAs, eight at the DICE awards and dominated GDC’s Game Developer’s Choice Awards. It picked up plenty of other prizes in between, and should have, at the very least, secured the future of its creator Thatgamecompany. It didn’t." (Industry, Journey, thatgamecompany)
