Thatgamecompany’s ‘Sky: Light Awaits’ Has Soft Launched

Sky: Light Awaits, the upcoming mobile game from the developer behind Journey, has soft launched in the Philippines, and you should probably go grab it right now because it looks like it’s going to be a fantastic game. Sky is a “social adventure" that has you and your friends explore the mysteries of a long-lost kingdom, but to do so, you’ll have to fly across the world. And since you only have a small candle and flame, you’ll need the help of others to use light to dispel the darkness that has blanketed the world (which is where the social part of the game comes in). I like seeing developers take advantage of the social aspect of mobile gaming in inventive ways that tie in with the narrative, and Thatgamecompany is definitely a developer that can do so well.

Sky will be a flagship Apple TV app when it comes out, but it will also play on iPhones and iPads. I wonder if Sky will be the app that makes people finally pay attention to Apple TV’s gaming capabilities. I guess that remains to be seen.
