Imagine that you're a bird soaring through the sky, searching for a flock to call your own. That's the essential experience of Gathering Sky, by indie studio Stranger Gravity.
You will thread yourself through the open air while trying to find other birds to join your adventure. The relaxing simplicity of the game won it the “Most Promising Indie Title” award at the Indie Prize Showcase in San Francisco in 2014. The game will feature original music composed by Dren McDonald, whose work includes Transformers: Age of Extinction Official Game, ELEVATE, and Counterstrike: Global Offensive.
We don't have a release date yet, but Gathering Sky is looking pretty fantastic.
Out there in the world, there are many people who are nervous while flying. Usually this nervousness isn't due to the technical wonder that is a massive tube of metal with wings managing to stay up in the air, but rather the chance that said tube doesn't reach its final destination. In order to help people understand the slim chances of the second scenario, Vanilla Pixel has released Am I Going Down?.
The app uses publicly available statistics to calculate the odds of any flight crashing, with a vast majority of odds coming out reassuringly high, and is meant to assure people that air travel is statistically very safe. Well, as long as you don't intend to catch the New York JFK to London Heathrow trip on a British Airways Boeing 747-400 every day for the next 25,433 years, in which case one of those flights may end a bit roughly for you.
Am I Going Down? is available to download now for $0.99.
Cloud Spin has been updated to become a universal app; it is now available for iPhone and iPod Touch in addition to the iPad. Thus, the flying adventure featuring Lucky the rabbit is now playable on a whole lot more iOS devices.
When we had a look at the app in Fall 2013, we thought it was great, and this update definitely increases its attractiveness. The game has also been tweaked with improvements based on on user/reviewer feedback, including more music variety in Tournament mode. To mark this update, the app will be offered for 50% off for a limited time.
Cloud Spin is available on the App Store for $0.99 until March 13, when it returns to its regular price of $1.99.
