17. Journey

Due for release on Playstation Network this year, the premise sees you playing as a robed figure, journeying through the desert towards a large mountain. There is no map, and no objective other than to reach your distant destination. Through your journey you will meet other players from around the world with whom you can work (if you want to) but you cannot communicate in any way. According to designer Jenova Chen, "it's about two strangers who meet online. They don't know who they are or how old they are. All they know is, that is another human being." Sounds pretty intriguing from where we're sitting.
