You are a shepherd of birds. Starting with just one bird, your flock will grow as you find others to join you in your travels. You and the birds are part of the myth of this world.

  • Feel the swiftness and grace of flight
  • Discover a beautiful, hand-painted world
  • Escape into an emotional experience crafted through thoughtful gameplay

“[...] relaxing gameplay that can hardly be compared to any recent release on the market; portable and otherwise”
- Portable Gaming Region

“Yes please, I’d like to be playing this now.”
- John Walker, RockPaperShotgun

“[Gathering Sky] is less a game and more a thoughtful, contemplative experience.”
- Ken Gagne, Computerworld

Gathering Sky is also being developed for Android tablets and iOS.

looking back on it, for some odd reason this makes me think of Studio Ghibli movies... Perhaps it's how whimsical it is!

@Barbariska: We're about done with beta testing at this point -- hold tight for the final release! :)

@Pluma: The birds are based on a number of different animals, but starlings were definitely one of our initial inspirations! One of the original titles we debated was "Murmuration".

Is it possible today to act as a tester, as the commenter below? I very much like this game and can not wait to play in it, at least in the demo.

BTW for those people who are saying "I don't think I'll like this, looks too repetitive" I played it when it was still called Apsis, I was a tester for it... It was one of the most beautiful games I have ever played, both a artistic adventure and an emotional rollercoaster. I highly recommend this to EVERYONE.

They could be Starlings.

are the birds based off of Starlings?

We've had to push the release date back a bit (maybe a month or so) -- hold tight!
