The “Journey” creators of thatgamecompany have officially unveiled their latest multiplayer social game called “Sky”. However, the game initially appears exclusively for iOS.
Already a few months ago, the men of thatgamecompany, known for their titles like “flOw”, “Flower” and “Journey”, had made initial hints on their latest project. However, no concrete details were mentioned. But yesterday evening the developers appeared in person of Studiochef Jenova Chen on a stage on which they were not expected.
In the context of the Apple Keynote, the iPhone 8, the iPhone X and a new Apple Watch were presented, Jenova Chen presented the new adventure “Sky”, which is quite reminiscent of “Flower” and especially “Journey”.
“Sky” is a multiplayer social game where up to eight players from around the world explore a world above the clouds. In the role of children of light, one has to bring the light where it is most needed. In addition, Chen promises intuitive controls to make the game accessible to every player.
“Sky” is to appear this winter for iPad, iPhone and AppleTV. However, the developers have already confirmed via Twitter that “Sky” is a multiplatform game, which is only periodically released for iOS. However, it is not yet known for which platform “Sky” is subsequently developed. By the way, Vincent Diamante will cast an orchestral soundtrack.
