A Stranger Gravity was shooting for an April deadline to get its beautiful bird flock adventure Gathering Sky out into the world. It missed by a wide margin.

However, good news is ours today, as now the studio says it has a final release date for the game, and it's August 13th. That's on iOS, Android, as well as PC.

There's even a new trailer to seal the deal. Is it really happening? I think it is.

If you don't know, Gathering Sky is a 2D adventure that starts you off guiding a single bird, but eventually you get a whole flock.

You have to fly across serene skies, among the clouds, catching speed on drifts of wind. I wrote that it is, above all, a beautiful experience when going hands-on with it last year.

But it's not all pleasant: as I found out, later areas see your flock being hunted by eagles and navigating a lightning storm.

The music captures all of these different emotions beautifully and it's supplied by strings and vocalists for what A Stranger Gravity is calling a "mythical sound design."

Since then, Gathering Sky has been further improved, or so I'm led to believe. Let's hope that's the case (not that it needed improving).

We'll get to find out when it comes out next week.
