The game is the first version and was developed for a term paper. Therefore the story is linear and you can not influence it, but that does not make the new gaming experience any smaller. Depending on the success of The Journey, a second part might be developed, which instead of presenting you an intriguing story will let you decide for yourself which actions to take.
To play the game, read the text and scroll through it with the joystick of your Series 60 mobile phone. When you've reached the end of the block, press the joystick to continue in the game. As the story unfolds, you will have to walk to a new location. How far you have to go depends on where you live - it might be 50 meters or some hundred meters.
