Journey speedpaint and a brush/blending practice done in one hour.

One day when I was playing, I came across a beginner redcloak. I wanted to help them get the Threshold achievement, but apparently they didn't know that you can keep flying in the air as long as you have a partner to load you up (and that you need to load your partner, too). So I jumped in one place, flying, then singing, flying, singing, and my companion understood what I was trying to say!

I can't describe the feeling I had when we finally crossed the bridge - it took a few tries, but my companion didn't grow tired or bored. We stuck together till the end; I let them lead, because I didn't want to spoil them the fun of finding secrets yourself. Although I may have nodded them in the right direction once or twice...

I must be super lucky, since I keep getting the most adorable companions to play with.

Its fun to see brand new Travelers. I can only imagine there expression when they see a white cloak or extremely detailed one and super long scarf.

I always try to guide them the best I can, but mostly only during the moments when your dodging the flyers.

It sure is! At least I was super thrilled when I saw a whitecloak on my first playthrough. I didn't know exactly what the colour meant, but I was sure it was a mark of something special.

The sheer innocence, mystique and adventure in one sole playthrough that spans less than 2 hours with someone else is just infinitely satisfying.

To think such innovative minimalism was the key ingredient to such a heartwarming experience.

Couldn't have put it better myself. This game is absolutely stunning and so emotionally charged I can't even begin to describe it. One has to experience the journey themselves.
