Of the Sky
A downloadable game for Windows
Of the Sky is a third person 3D exploration and puzzle solving game. It takes place in a floating island world inspired by the beautiful scenery found on the Swedish island of Gotland. Using the easy to understand mechanics, explore the many floating islands, solve puzzles, and try to uncover the mystery of the fire keeping the islands afloat in the sky! You play as Hymn, a mysterious spirit-like creature whose motives are unknown, but who you can’t help but want to help guide.
Of the Sky is inspired by not only the unique and beautiful nature found on the island of Gotland, but also the ruins, runic alphabet, and even origin story! You can see more of the runes and architecture depicted in Studio Ghibli’s Kiki’s Delivery Service. Gotland is known to house the town of Visby, one of the oldest standing medieval towns in Scandinavia and home to a mostly intact ring wall surrounding the city originally built in the twelfth century.
