Sky: Children of Light comes under the ‘wholesome’ games category and was originally released in 2019 for IOS, then 2020 for Android. It’s an open-world exploration game, where a player can go through seven different realms while befriending other players to help them along the way.
The player follows the story of ‘The Children of Light’ who witnesses their world falling apart in seven different realms after the stars fell from the constellations out of the sky. As a part of this group, it is the player’s quest to find all the stars and restore them. This is achieved by exploring the areas, sharing love and light around the kingdoms to awake the ancestors that perished and find out the hidden truth so the stars can be restored. While the storyline is minimal, the concept of becoming friends with different players, chatting and heading out on a great journey, ties it all together.

The world has seven different realms, each of them have a unique theme that represents a stage of life, with a vast of areas to explore. . Throughout the world, the players will encounter “spirits” known as their ancestors, that will also allow them to unlock special items in return for the in-game currency after they’ve been awakened. Players can also collect ‘winged light’, which increases their stamina during flight.
There is a small island that serves as a community hub for players, where they can mingle, chat and befriend each other during their journey. They are also able to send other players gifts, interact and unlock new abilities as their friendship grows.
