It will be a perfect gift to send to fellow fans! Head to Sky’s game app, website, and social channels for upcoming information.

‘Sky’ players will have access to a bespoke ‘1 Year Anniversary’ hat gift in exchange for hearts. Folks joining the area will also be able to enjoy other birthday-themed festivities and decorations too.
A Message from Jenova Chen
Jenova Chen, co-Founder and Creative Director commented: “Without a doubt, Sky has been one of the most exciting, challenging, rewarding and heartwarming chapters of thatgamecompany studio. We humbly launched Sky a year ago with the hope that it may emotionally evoke or touch people’s hearts… I don’t think we were ready for the players’ response or that over 20 million fans would get to play it. Its world has truly become the community’s haven to be themselves and to positively connect with others. We can’t wait to grow this space with our fans over this next year!”
Stay tuned to our website and social media news next week for additional details and news! Everyone is invited to join the discussion on our official Discord server at discord.gg/thatskygame.
