"Sky: Children of the Light" lands, promises to be the Fortnite of non-violent mobile games

Sky: Children of the Light is a brand new type of social adventure game that does not revolve around endless killing sprees, loot and the usual gaming stuff, but is instead focused on positive emotions and is an experience that can be shared with everyone. Unveiled on stage at a 2017 Apple event dedicated to the Apple TV, the game has now arrived first for iPhone and iPad, and will only later arrive to the Apple TV platform (it's coming soon to Android, PC and console too).

Of course, it's hard to keep the excitement for such a long time, but the wait definitely seems to have been worth it. The game presents a vast and beautiful open world and promises long hours of interactive entertainment. Developers from 'thatgamecompany' have already delivered some smashing hits like the games Journey and Flower, and here is what they hope to achieve with Sky:

This world happens to be an animated kingdom that you freely explore not just by walking, but you can also fly across seven realms, solve mysteries, help others and make friends online. The goal of the game is to spread Light through the desolate kingdom and return the fallen Stars to their constellations.

The developer promises that the release is just the start, and Sky’s kingdom will continue to expand with new adventures, new stories and new characters along the way. Updates and new areas of exploration are scheduled with future updates.

Finally, a game without killing like a moron everything that moves. Thank you! Shooting violent games are for those that can't reach above 80 on the IQ scale. I pity those sheeps..

I respect the opinion on violent games - not every game type is appealing to everyone. However, to call all people who enjoy a game with some violence below average IQ ruins your post. I'm sure there are plenty of dumb people out there who enjoy your favorite genre of game.

I think a lot of companies don't understand why fortnite is popular. 1: A lot of laugh attention with streamers. 2: Every platform so no one is left out. 3: It was a smoother experience than the then unpolished PUBG. 4: They play a lot of internet culture to stay relevant. Let's see how this fares.

This game is stunning graphically and the soundtrack too but wandering around in beautiful landscapes without any purpose doesn’t make a game fun, I really don’t understand the purpose of the game, if I wanna make friends then I’ll do it in social media or going outside meeting people not flying over clouds and running on mountains with virtual friends, a game must have bosses, puzzles, levels, etc. that’s my only critic to the game, other aspects are 10/10, and kids will get bored even more easily than adults in this game
