Thatgamecompany Announces New Game 'Sky' During Apple Event

Thatgamecompany Announces New Game 'Sky' During Apple Event”

Sky will have an orchestral soundtrack and, thanks to the 810X fusion chip on the new Apple TV, looks lovely.

At the Apple press conference held today, Jenova Chen took to the stage to reveal thatgamecompany's next game, Sky.

For those playing on Apple TV, everything can be done with one finger using the Siri Remote.

Back in 2014, we reported that the studio had secured $7 million in funding for this project. But as Chen wrote in the studio's blog, Sky is "a game specially created to be played, and shared, among loved ones and family". Past teases for the game have emphasized that the theme of the game was "giving", but this brief trailer doesn't shed much light on what that might mean.

Back in 2012, indie developer thatgamecompany came out of nowhere with Journey, which used unique visuals and accompanying music to gain a massive cult following.

It's always kind of perplexing watching Apple's live events, as the company has notoriously had a tough time showing any real interest in video games but they always end up showcasing their new hardware with games. The idea is that you and up to seven other players online explore the land to bring light to darkness, as well as fly around after giant creatures.

A specific release date for the game has yet to be announced, but thatgamecompany promises that it is "coming soon".
