Night Journey: A Spiritual Video Game That Encourages Slow Play
The Night Journey is an experimental video game inspired by spiritualism and enlightenment.
The Night Journey is a video game developed by video artist Bill Viola and the USC Game Innovation Lab. Unlike the fast paced world of typical video games, The Night Journey rewards the player for slowing down. If the player attempts to move quickly, the game blurs the landscape. The creators say that the game is based on an individual’s journey toward enlightenment.
