Video games developed by thatgamecompany:

Examples of tropes found in the company's history:

  • Beautiful Void:
    • Cloud: In the actual gamespace, it's clouds, the blue sky, and the islands below, with a volcano, and some buildings added in the fourth level.
    • flOw: The only features are the creatures you eat, the creature you are, and the watery substance around you.
  • The McCoy: The point of thatgamecompany is making video games based on emotions unusual to the medium.
  • One-Word Title: Even thatnextgame is a Portmantitle.
  • Silence Is Golden: Hardly any dialogue pops up in the games.
  • Worth It: TGC went two years over the deadline and the budget and was effectively bankrupt by the time they shipped Journey but a single email made it all worth it.
