Apsis renamed to Gathering Sky and showing at PAX East + GDC!
Apsis is Greenlit!
Release date: March 2015
Gathering Sky is a playful, uplifting experience about flying.

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.

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.

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