Apple looks keen to make a big gaming push with its new Apple TV 4K set top box, revealing it's poached a key studio from core console platform holders Sony at its iPhone 8 launch event. A tweet from the devs after the announcement indicates that the game will be on these platforms first, but not exclusively, so hold out for that PS4 release. Creative lead and studio CEO Jenova Chen was on stage today at Apple's latest keynote to show off Sky, billed as a "romantic adventure game". A follow-up has been hotly anticipated, though the decision to release a mobile game may be a surprise to fans. Up to eight player can team up to light candles, soar around, and generally be the adorably odd protagonists of a Thatgamecompany game. Now we know they've been very hard at work on their next title - Sky.
Video game stories from other sites on the web. We wanted as many people to love games, and so we were encouraged to explore this idea at thatgamecompany. The entire game, he said, can be played with the simple controls built into the touch-sensitive Apple TV remote.
