Thatgamecompany is best known for their beautiful and melancholic exploration game Journey, but their next project, Sky: Children of the Light is coming a bit sooner than many might have thought.
Granted, the game has been in open beta for some time, so it’s finally good to get a solid release date for the game’s official rollout. Sky, which has been described as a social exploration game, perhaps in a similar way to Journey, is set to arrive for iOS and Apple TV users on July 11. You’re able to pre-order the free game (I know) on the App Store right now.
The game sure is pretty as it appears to broaden Journey’s core ideas of exploration, making meaningful connections within a game space while appealing to a mass audience with rather basic mechanics. The game is expected to grow with more adventures and seasonal material post-launch.
Being that Sky is an Apple-device exclusive, it’s fair to assume there are no plans to bring it to Android or other platforms just yet.
