Sky is an attractive journey from thatgamecompany, the creators of Journey and Flower, and it’s coming first to Apple methods.
Editor’s word: A earlier model of this story acknowledged that Sky was coming solely to iPhone, iOS, and Apple TV. Since then, a tweet from thatgamecompany indicated that it was coming to those platforms first, not solely. This has been edited within the story beneath.
It was almost a 12 months in the past when thatgamecompany first teased their announcement made at the moment on the Apple Convention. Again then, we solely knew of their in-progress venture as one thing obscure, mysterious, and blue. Jenova Chen took the stage at the moment, although, to deliver us a have a look at their newest Journey-esque endeavor, entitled merely, Sky:
Sky is described as a social journey sport, with as much as eight gamers worldwide capable of play collectively as proven briefly within the teaser above. Sky’s focus is on exploration, as gamers fly internationally to gather “mild.” Previous teases for the sport have emphasised that the theme of the sport was “giving,” however this temporary trailer doesn’t shed a lot mild on what which may imply.
Regardless of the case, it’s clear we are able to anticipate one other emotional, probably wordless, and visually attractive journey above and past thatgamecompany’s previous glorious work. In any case, it’s been over 5 years since Journey!
The draw back, or upside, relying on the place your loyalties lie, is that it’s going to be Apple-exclusive…for now. That’s proper: iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV at launch. Followers of Journey, Flower, and different related video games may be heartbroken in the event that they don’t have the money or model loyalty to dish out for the large Apple merchandise wanted to play this sport in its superb promised 4K, particularly because it appears to be so much like Journey however with much more of an emphasis on collaboration. A tweet from the devs after the announcement signifies that the sport will likely be on these platforms first, however not solely, so maintain out for that PS4 launch.
Sky doesn’t but have a launch date but, however we’ll probably study extra in regards to the sport as soon as thatgamecompany updates their official page as promised with extra particulars.
