thatgamecompany, has announced a schedule of events to celebrate the second anniversary of their award-winning game, Sky: Children of the Light. The studio recently shared that Sky had already amassed over 100 Million downloads ahead of its June 29th Nintendo Switch launch. Earlier in July, the team also welcomed its very first collaboration and crossover event, featuring the internationally-beloved children’s book, The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince). This latest adventure season, which is available in Sky until September 19th, was designed as part of Le Petit Prince’s 75th anniversary and brings to life their shared values of childhood wonder and curiosity!
Much to the delight of fans, the studio will release two new digital volumes of Sky’s soundtrack from composer Vincent Diamante. Sky Original Game Soundtrack Vol. 2 will include a 26 track album covering the game’s atmospheric scoring of the main story arc, while Sky Original Game Soundtrack Vol. 3 will feature a 36 track album encompassing favorite music of the past adventure seasons! Vincent Diamante is an award-winning and nominated composer and audio designer (BAFTA, AIAS, G4TV) who has scored Sky, Flower and Cloud for thatgamecompany as well as Skullgirls, Castlevania, among others. Sky’s original soundtracks will be available to purchase or stream via: https://www.thatskygame.com/ost
“The musical world of Sky has evolved so much over the last few years,” said Diamante. “The last two years of music writing has been an exciting journey of creating new ideas and reshaping older ones for the players that have lived with the game for multiple seasons, as well as the new players that are seeing a different game from what we launched back in 2019. Being able to respond to the players with fresh new music every few months has been both challenging and inspiring as each new season brings a different set of emotions to the forefront.”
To honor Sky’s two-year anniversary, thatgamecompany has designed a small celebratory surprise event within the game for players to come together and unlock Birthday Hat cosmetics, Birthday Cake items and a Birthday Flag stage item. The anniversary event will launch July 12th-25th 2021. Additionally, the team will host a Sky livestream with the developers as well as Fan Q&A, giveaways and more!
