Sky: Light Awaits

Embark on an unforgettable social adventure in an ever expanding world.

What’s New

Version 0.4.18

Greetings, adventurers!

We have an interim bug fix patch in preparation of the incoming new Seasonal event. Please check out the details below.

Daily Quests Addition

Daily quests are now available even when there is not an active Seasonal event.

A new daily quest NPC with two quests each day has been added to Home for when the Season of Gratitude has ended
Completing these quests will reward you with a large amount of candlelight.

Chat Table Improvements

We have fixed the ability for players to push other players with chat tables.

We understand that some players are also interrupting the experience in Home with these tables. We hear you, and are intending to take care of this and any other disruption of the intended experience of Sky.

Friendship Adjustments

We are working on the next iteration of our economy and additional changes are in the works. Meanwhile, in order to gift Hearts to friends, players must now have a more advanced friendship. Our intention is to discourage unfair bot farming and multi-device exploitation, as Hearts are designed to represent authentic gratefulness from one human being to another.

General Updates

Occasional hand-holding connection issues should be drastically improved.
Minor bug fixes, crash fixes, and tuning.

As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback, and encourage you to join us in that discussion on our official Discord server at

Confusing but beautiful

I’m still unsure about the gameplay and the storyline as there are barely any words in the game, but the graphics are so beautiful!
I’m also having issues with the chat function? I only see dots with “Anonymous” written beside them.
The only other issue I’m having is the camera spinning me the wrong way all the time, I’ll be walking and the camera will spin around the other way and I can’t see where I’m going!
Other than those two issues I love this game, although I’ve only been hanging out in the aviary due to the storyline confusion.

Positively gorgeous game!

I’m absolutely in love with everything about this game, great way to pass the time that’s for sure. The graphics, sound design, concept etc.
I’ve spent so long on Sky already and I only got it a few days ago, it’s insane. Although I will say the default controls are really not the nicest, but you can work around it a little by tapping the top left corner of the screen and access settings where you can give a reasonably minor change to the controls.
I wanted to point out when I get to the forest section the game tends to bug out... A LOT. The whole screen freezes up although I can still move and hear the music, there isn’t much point to it seeing as I can’t tell what I’m doing due to the screen lock up. It even sometimes bugs out completely and ends up just closing the app. I have taken into account this may be my iPad seeing as it isn’t a new design but my two friends who play this also say they’ve had trouble with this.
Generally speaking though I adore this game and will continue to play it!

Awesome game

Really enjoy this game. Great time waster lol. Been playing since Feb with all the new updates. Some not so great updates and some really awesome ones. Waiting for Eye of Eden to open. Really want the new stuff. Hope there is a black cape out there for me.
If your the type that doesn’t like be alone there are alot of people who play who would gladly be your friend. Just remember to trade candles. Dont be a cheap skate. Trading candles gets you hearts which you can buy stuff with. The game is also similar to Journey.
This game is also good for solo players.
Love love love.
Only thing i dont like is the multiple server switching. You will be with your friend/s and next thing, your alone. Takes a couple of minutes for you and them to pop up again. Other annoying thing is the game crashes. Not alot. Just enough lol. Other than that, the game is awesome. Graphics are mint!
