It’s been a very busy summer in the studio as the team has continued to push forward on iterating design concepts, multiplayer dynamics and starting to add artistic and audio polish to the game. The day has finally come for us to start sharing our next project to the world… and we do so with more than a few butterflies in our stomachs and plenty of joy.
Today, we announce our next game — Sky — a social adventure game that will be coming first to iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. Details on additional platforms to follow.
Sky has been a few years in the making. After the release of Journey, so many fans wrote to tell us how much they enjoyed playing the game with their spouse, children or loved ones, and asked if we could create a game where they could play together. We wanted as many people to love games, and so we were encouraged to explore this idea at thatgamecompany. Which brings our games, for the first time, to mobile – a platform that many have access to, the world over.
It’s hard to explain the game, but a good place would be to say that Sky is a game specially created to be played, and shared, among loved ones and family. If you can imagine the delight of visiting a theme park where lasting memories are made, we envision Sky will sometimes feel like that. We know many of our fans have questions about what we have been up to, and so alongside a gameplay teaser video and new artwork, we have included a conversation with Geoff Keighley to share more insight into our development process with you.
As we work hard to deliver this game, we invite our fans to sign up for our newsletter where we will be sharing more information about Sky and developments within our studio. You can do that on our Sky page, linked here.
We are grateful for your support and we are excited to hear what you think. We look forward to meeting you above the clouds.
With much appreciation,
– the team at thatgamecompany
