Developer/ publisher Thatgamecompany Format iOS Origin US Release 2017
The Journey and Flower developer has been teasing something big, blue and cloudy via its Twitter for months. We now know that something is Sky (perhaps, in retrospect, we should have guessed that earlier). Thatgamecompany’s first game to be built exclusively for mobile devices is a “social adventure game” set among a world of floating isles. Although the billowing red capes and the cloud-mountain in the distance scream Journey, the range of player interactions in this ever-evolving space is much broader: cooperation is key in groups of up to eight players, but there’s also room for competition, if you choose. Exact details are scarce at the moment, but with a winter release fast approaching, the mystery and mist will soon clear.
