Described as a game about “giving”, the makers of Journey and Flower unveiled their latest game at the iPhone 8/X reveal.
A multi-platform game that’s launching on iOS first, Sky is pitched as a multiplayer “social adventure” game, where players fly above the clouds. It seems pretty straightforward.

On the site, however, thatgamecompany says Sky is “hard to explain”. “If you can imagine the delight of visiting a theme park where lasting memories are made, we envision Sky will sometimes feel like that,” they wrote.
To explain things a little better, thatgamecompany’s Jenova Chen filmed a brief Q&A with Geoff Keighley. In that, he mentioned that “true happiness comes from a person who is genuinely wanting to help others”, probably a good indication of what to expect.
Sky is due out on iOS later this year.
