The developer of the acclaimed exploration-driven game Journey has released a new game for mobile users that’s now available worldwide. It’s called Sky: Children of the Light, and it’s currently out for iOS devices with a release on other platforms including Android devices, the Apple family including Macs and tvOS, PCs, and consoles “coming soon,” according to the game’s site.
Previously released in a beta version that was known as “Sky: Light Awaits,” the full game is out now as of Thursday, according to thatgamecompany, the creator of the new title. An announcement was shared on Twitter along with a trailer to preview some of what the game involves. Those who played Journey or Flower will instantly recognize the art style that helped define those two titles as it finds its way into the developer’s newest game once again.
Following a beta and limited live release, we are truly honored to finally launch #thatskygame to everyone globally.
