Play OverviewPlay Overview

Sky Children of the Light (2019) (Sky Children of Light) is a huge open-world online game designed to create altruism between players. From the developer of Flower and Journey, it takes you on a social adventure in an ever-expanding world with up to 8 other players.

You soar above the clouds to seven dreamlike realms and work together to find buried mysteries and rebuild a fallen kingdom. It’s more than just a heart-warming flight simulator though. As you progress you earn new ways to communicate with and give gifts to other players. Players team to adventure into darker realms to save spirits and uncover ancient treasures. Like a day at Disneyland, Sky is designed to bring families and friends closer together.

Now available on Nintendo Switch, although details about in-app purchases and cross-play features are not yet confirmed. This is described as the first console platform, so we expect Sky Children of the Light on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in due course.

Our examiner, Jo Robertson, first checked Sky Children of the Light 4 years ago. It was re-examined by Andy Robertson and updated 5 months ago.

Rated PEGI 7 for Mild Violence and Fear.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.

Skill Level

8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. The online nature of the game requires good communication and ability to cope with the word-less (usually friendly) interactions with other players. You need to be able to navigate larger spaces and get used to the precise flight controls.
