The Art of Getting There

Video games. Fine art. Two mediums usually considered worlds apart.

Enter Journey . A first person, online adventure that bridges the gap. A game that doesn’t hinge on shoot ‘em up or brute violence tactics. Instead, it is an interactive parable. A quest not only to reach a destination, but also to discover who you are as well as your place and purpose.

The visual world of Journey came from Otis Digital Media alumnus Matt Nava. Nava decided to move away from the hyperrealism prevalent in gaming today. Instead, he built a world of creativity and imagination—where imagery became the narrative and aesthetics the emotion.

The game has landed on almost every “best of” gaming list imaginable. It became the fastest-selling game on PlayStation Network in North America and even won a Grammy nomination—a first for video games. The game was a hit, but beyond the commercial and critical reception, it is clearly ammunition in the battle to establish games as legitimate art.

At Otis, the lines between disciplines are blurred—your studies in fine arts and digital media can become one stunning experience—allowing you not only to compete in the cultural landscape, but also to shape it.
