Today (September 12), during Apple's iPhone event, thatgamecompany returned to announce their new game Sky. Founder Jenova Chen said you play as the children of light in the game and that your goal is to bring that light to where it is needed most.

If it's anything like TGC's past efforts, expect plenty of subtext and symbolism hidden beneath lush environments and high-flying characters.

Met Eireann issues status yellow warning for THESE counties
Winds could touch 60mph along the southwestern coasts through this morning (Monday) with 70mph gales forecast later on Tuesday. On Sunday, Met √Čireann issued a similar Status Yellow warning with Mayo, Donegal, Sligo and Leitrim included on the list.


Incorporating a similar style of magic and visual whimsy to thatgamecompany's previous works such as Journey and Flower, it looks really promising. On the company site, they describe the title: "It's hard to explain the game, but a good place would be to say that Sky is a game specially created to be played, and shared, among loved ones and family".

Sky has been a few years in the making. The game will, like Journey before it, be a mixture of traveling and social interaction. Sky will have an orchestral soundtrack and, thanks to the 810X fusion chip on the new Apple TV, looks handsome.

Thatgamecompany's last game was Journey, which is considered to be a masterpiece by many. A tweet from the devs after the announcement indicates that the game will be on these platforms first, but not exclusively, so hold out for that PS4 release. If you can imagine the delight of visiting a theme park where lasting memories are made, we envision Sky will sometimes feel like that. Sky is scheduled to launch "this winter".
