Original StoryAsk any Android player what their most anticipated games are and I'm sure they'd list thatgamecompany's Sky: Children of the Light among them. It launched first for iOS last year, where it earned the adoration of critics and fans, though news of the Android port had recently dried up a tad – until now, that is.
Today, thatgamecompany announced that the game will launch for Android next month. It's currently available for pre-registration over on Google Play.
Sky is an exploration-focused adventure game that is best played alongside others for optimal results. It looks great, works surprisingly well with touch controls, and offers significant post-launch content. Basically, it takes what worked especially well about the developer's 2013 classic, Journey, and builds upon those ideas in novel ways.
Android players, assemble! ???? We're beyond excited to share Sky for Android will be opening its gates globally and arriving in April. We can't wait for everyone waiting to join us in #thatskygame!

Dann reviewed it at launch last year, praising its presentation, moment-to-moment exploration, and excellent co-op gameplay, calling it "a beautiful experience which delivers much more than a standard 3D platformer", before awarding it an outstanding Gold Rating.
Unsurprisingly, it ended up earning itself multiple mobile GOTY nominations and wins, including from our very own Mobile Game Awards, where it picked up the Pocket Gamer People's Choice award.
If you're yet to delve into Sky: Children of the Light's gorgeous world, you'll find it available for download now as a free-to-play title from the App Store.
