Journey is something of an ineffable experience, and its ending in particular is one of the most affecting moments in gaming.

This alternate ending, by animator El-Cid, is ... a different kind of moment. But we'd still advise against watching it if you haven't completed Journey, since the first half of the video reveals important details about the game's conclusion.
