I’m not sure at what point in my life sinking hundreds of hours into giant stopped being quite as fun as it used to be, but if Skylight is the kind of game I can enjoy now I certainly have no complaints. Skylight is a rather minimalistic first-person platformer in a cell-shaded world; in it, you hop from one platform to the next creating music across the sky.
Every level is randomly generated with its own soundtrack to pass the time with. As you make it further along each level, the platforms get further and further apart as the world gets darker and darker. It looks to be an interesting challenge at the later portions of the game and yet still maintain a more relaxing air to itself. As you can tell by the notes in the video the game is still in development over at Moment Studio. Well, more like still in development by Bill Borman, a game developer and musician. Skylight is his project, a relaxing experience of a robot trying to find his way back to his home in the sky.
While the game is set to be $3.00 US on launch, right now you can check out Skylight for free on his website here. As a nice bonus, Skylight is playable on all platforms including your browser. There is no excuse not to give this game a try.
