INTERVIEW – In Conversation With Sunni Pavlovic (thatgamecompany, Journey)

By Marty Mulrooney

SunniPavlovicAMOInterview

Journey (PSN) in an incredible, unforgettable experience. When I was trudging up the snowy mountainside, ice-cold wind blasting in my face, I really felt it. When I collapsed face down in the snow, my heart sank. When I was resurrected and soared higher than ever before, I felt elated. Euphoric doesn’t do the ending justice… blinding white light has become seared into my retinas. Journey is an experience saturated with emotion. One of the best games released this year and a true work of art – AMO is therefore proud to present an exclusive online interview with Sunni Pavlovic, Studio Manager at thatgamecompany!
