"Then there are games that really feel like they have some level of artistic quality to them. They are interesting and original and evoke a bit of emotional reaction that isn't just straight adrenalin. Star Sky, a recent indie title out of Sweden is that sort of title." - Lamezoid
"Sky Star is full of art. Interactive meditation. 4/5" - [digi]
"Nominated for Best Emotional Game Design at the 2016 Emotional Game Awards."
A quiet night, the heavens above, and a tale waiting to be told.
Star Sky is a unique and personable experience. From the first moment that you step into the game, you become the narrator of a methodically slow-paced story you choose to weave with every step. Those who rush from start to finish will miss all the secrets and choices woven into the world: you must learn to be patient. Audio cues and blink-of-an-eye visuals will let you know when the magic is about to occur, be sure not to miss it!
From the mind and heart of Mårten Jonsson, Star Sky unfolds like a beautiful poem that tells a different saga every time. Dodging the traditional conventions of gameplay, Star Sky can instead be enjoyed through its ambiance, the atmospheric sensations, and the satisfaction that the player creates with each conclusion. You may not always understand, but remember that this game takes place in the restless night. All the constraints of the story are as limitless as the sky itself.
Goodnight, and may you find what you're seeking beneath the stars.

Very unique and relaxing
This doesn't fit within the typical genre of games. It's rather a relaxing game of finding special events along a walk. Trigger the event and it may change the entire path your on skipping the event may as well. It'll take a good dozen plays to see everything. Definitely play with headphones. This version on my 4S is just as good as the original pc version, just more accessible for before going to sleep.
I'm so tired of the same old games. This game shows that not everyone is out of ideas. It's such a relaxing game and peaceful. Not for the gamer who just likes to shoot stuff. This is for the person who's looking for the reinvented ideas. Well done! All I ask from the developer is: make more games as good and unique as this one!
I am definitely enjoying this, especially at night, with headphones & the lights turned off. My only problem is I can't unlock everything & I'm starting to get a bit frustrated with it. There's suppose to be a guide online that I'm interested in checking out. Overall, this is a gorgeous app. If you enjoy relaxing with your ipad then I highly recommend!
