Gathering Sky is a meditative, experimental adventure about guiding a flock of birds across the sky. Dance in the winds of a far-away world and create an emotional story without words.
We’re thrilled to announce that the experience is now available on the iOS App Store, Google Play, Steam (Windows, Mac, Linux), and the Humble Store. If you’d like a review code for Steam or iOS please let us know!
Along with the launch, we’ve put up one of the tracks from the OST for free on SoundCloud, take a listen!
Gathering Sky is a bit of a love letter to the games we’d like to see made: games that aren’t about winning, scoring or conquering. We want you to sit down to wrap yourself in a short journey and return to your life feeling just a bit better.
The experience features an entirely original score composed by Dren McDonald (The String Arcade, Ravenwood Fair, Skulls of the Shogun) and was recorded live at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. The score weaves the small wind & string ensemble of SFCM with female vocalists Amy Foote & Karry Walker (of Ultralash) inside the mythical sound design of Gathering Sky. (Find out more about the audio of Gathering Sky at Gamasutra).
Gathering Sky has been presented at PAX East, GamerCamp, Casual Connect, BFIG, and a number of other events across North America. This past summer, the experience was awarded ‘Most Promising in Development’ at the Indie Prize Showcase in San Francisco.
