Sky: Children of the Ligh‪t‬

4.8

Sky: Children of the Light is a game set in a virtual kingdom that allows players to explore an in-game environment. The game has seven stages represented by seven realms and the Home — the starting hub. The Sky game on iOS presents users with special in-game rewards collected from ‘children of the light’ during their virtual journey.

The game places a lot of emphasis on social mechanics and in-game friendships. Sky’s interactive design helped it win the Best Visual Design Aesthetic at the Webby Awards in 2020.

Due to Sky’s aesthetic design and fluid gameplay, we decided to test it for bugs. Check out our QA specialist’s bug report for Children of the Light .

The game’s design is aesthetically pleasing, but nevertheless, some visual defects can be found. There is often a choppy transition between color schemes in some in-game scenes. Although some of these issues are not critical, they affect the gaming experience.
