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.
