On the same day that Apple held its annual product event announcing the new iPhone X, thatgamecompany, the studio behind 2012's indie hit Journey, has announced an Apple exclusive new game: Sky. "Everything can be done with one finger on the Siri remote", Chen says of the game. Players control adorable little cloaked figures (who look even cuter versions of the Traveler from Journey) called "Children of Light", travelling around the world to bring light "where it's needed most".
Demonstrated for the first time during Apple's conference earlier today, showing off the power of the newly announced Apple TV 4K, the gameplay is single touch orientated, making it seemingly a flawless fit for the platform.

Back in 2014, we reported that the studio had secured $7 million in funding for this project. The next year, news broke that the game would be a "connection-driven experience".
