‘Journey’ studio brings a dreamy fantasy game to iOS and Apple TV

by John_A

At Apple’s iPhone 8 announcement event today, founder of Thatgamecompany Jenova Chen went onstage to introduce a new title coming exclusively to Apple TV: Sky. Calling it a “romantic social adventure game,” players will use the set top box’s remote to control a character careening peacefully through the air.

The game’s simplistic, elemental play looks a lot like Chen’s studio’s previous hits Flow, Flower and Journey, the last of which was released in 2012 to great acclaim. It’s been five years since, which makes it even more curious for the studio to choose Apple TV as a platform for its next big release, which isn’t really known for gaming. 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. If you can imagine the delight of visiting a theme park where lasting memories are made, we envision Sky will sometimes feel like that.”

By that logic, a family entertainment center like the Apple TV is pretty suitable for Thatgamecompany’s particular flavor of simple, heartfelt narratives — not to mention the iPhone and iPad. But here’s Chen explaining the game’s development:

Sky doesn’t have a release date yet, but it will be “coming soon” for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.
