Posted: 8 months ago, last updated 3 weeks ago.
Author: Andy Robertson.
You soar above the clouds to seven dreamlike realms and work together to find buried mysteries and rebuild a fallen kingdom. It’s more than just a heart-warming flight simulator, though. As you progress you earn new ways to communicate with and give gifts to other players. Players team to adventure into darker realms to save spirits and uncover ancient treasures. Like a day at Disneyland, Sky is designed to bring families and friends closer together.
Now available on Nintendo Switch, although details about in-app purchases and cross-play features are no yet confirmed. This is described as the first console platform, so we expect Sky Children of the Light on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in due course.
