Finally got to listen to the spoiler section, and like Mudbunny am teetering on buying a PS3 just for this game. I am also in awe that one of the developers is here on this thread.

It sounds to me like the Smithsonian's video game exhibit might want to swap Journey in for Flower... but then again, I don't think it's the kind of game you want to give people a short burst of. (But then, what kind of game does lend itself to that treatment?)

Thank you Karla, Lara and Jullian for a great review that's redeemed my hope for video games as a medium. BTW anyone who's really digging this should check out Joystiq's interview with Jenova Chen, which - because I was so impressed by it - I transcribed here:

I'm a guy who usually scoffs at video game soundtracks, but I remember the Myth soundtrack being really good.

I remember flying up to the high spot in Halo 1 where you could listen to a track from Myth. I stood there with snow gently falling and let the nostalgia wash over me... sigh.
