    Sky: Children of the Light, by Journey developer thatgamecompany, is officially launching on July 11 for iOS. The announcement follows last year's launch of the beta version of the game, titled Sky: Light Awaits.

    The title was first unveiled on stage in 2017 during Apple's headline iPhone X event. Back then it was billed as an Apple TV-only game that would support single-finger play using the Siri Remote, but the developer's priorities appear to have changed in the interim.

    The YouTube video trailer, embedded below, describes next month's release of Sky as iPhone and iPad only, with the game's debut on tVOS, macOS, PC, and console to follow at a later date.


    MacRumors sister site TouchArcade offered readers further details on the content and direction of the game:
    Sky: Children of the Light is currently available to pre-order for free on the App Store.

    Is this game actually two years behind schedule or am I missing something?

    Without going back and watching the keynote I thought there was supposed to be something earth shattering about this game when announced. Or was that the one finger gameplay and gifting?

    Free? Yikes! :confused:

    At this point I viscerally despise games that are free, expecting all the disgusting F2P schemes they're going to pull.

    Wasn't this supposed to be on Apple Arcade?

    It was announced 2 years ago for Apple TV long before the existence of Apple Arcade

    Yeah but, I don’t get it. What kind of gun do you get to save the world with? Is it an invisible one, because I’m not seeing how you can kill your enemies to accomplish anything.

    I was interested in this game like two years ago when they first showed it off but now I don't even give a crap, especially since it's free to play.
