The boom of independent games continues to grow, while the game industry continues to prosper and grow. One of the most recognizable and successful independent titles of the 2010 was Journey, a critically acclaimed multiplayer adventure through a long-standing desert.
Now, the Journey ThadgameCompany developers launched their latest offer, the World Multiplayer World Title Sky: Children of The Light, on Nintendo Switch.
Originally launched on mobile devices in 2019, Sky: Children of The Light has accumulated a dedicated audience, a bit like the previous Journey and Flower TitgameCompany. There are seven kingdoms that players can explore with their friends during a trip to restore the night sky by returning departures to their constellations.
Just like Journey, Sky: Children of The Light focuses on collaboration and community – there is even a mechanic holding his hand! Up to 8 players will be able to play together at the same time in the Switch edition. The veterans of the mobile edition of the game will be able to transfer their accounts to the Switch version if they wish, and the crossed game between the two versions will be available from the launch.
Like the previous titles of ThatgameCompany, Sky: Children of the Light has accumulated the rewards since its initial exit on mobile devices: it has won prizes at SXSW Awards 2020, at the Game Developers Choice Awards 2020, at Webby Awards 2020 and 2021 And the best independent games of 2020 on Google Play Store, as well as the Apple s 2019 IPhone game price and Apple s 2020 design price.
As the Switch version is ready to reach a wider audience of players, we can probably expect that the list of Sky distinctions: Children of the Light starts to lie down once.
Sky: Children of The Light is now available on the Nintendo Eshop, with a free narrative arc. A STARTER PACK, containing the arc of the main story, two capes, an exclusive hairstyle, a flute of vessel, 75 candles and a mysterious extra surprise is also now available.
