Sky is a beautiful new social adventure game from the creators of Journey and Flower, which aims to bring the emotional connection of Journey to an experience you can share with your friends and family.
In Sky you start the game as a lone shadowy figure, but you soon find others and are touched by light – which changes your appearance and gives you new abilities. You are not a powerful hero in Sky – you are a small and weak, but if you work together with others you can overcome any obstacle. Your interactions with other players come in many forms throughout the game as you solve puzzles and form bonds, often using the candle that you carry within you to spread light through the game world.
It’s a beautiful and inventive game that manages to recreate that Journey-esque feeling of wonder, but also makes it feel like a much more social experience you can share with others. Touch-screen controls are always a worry, but the controls in Sky are simple and intuitive, with the the majority of the game played with swipes of the finger. Testing has been ongoing for a while now, but more Beta invites will be sent out this month and next month so sign up now to embark on a magical social adventure you can hold in the palm of your hand.
