We have waited a long time for Thatgamecompanys Sky: Light of Light when Apple first revealed it to showcase the power of the Apple TV 4K road back in 2017. We ourselves had to be another delay earlier this month.
It's finally out, but not for Apple TV oddly enough: You can just go to Sky on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. At some unspecified point in the future, it also comes to Mac, Apple TV, Android, PC and consoles. I'm looking forward to jumping in and I will get a review ready in the next few days.
