About This Game

A quiet night, the heavens above, and a tale waiting to be told.

Star Sky is a unique and personable experience. From the first moment that you step into the game, you become the narrator of a methodically slow-paced story you choose to weave with every step. Those who rush from start to finish will miss all the secrets and choices woven into the world: you must learn to be patient. Audio cues and blink-of-an-eye visuals will let you know when the magic is about to occur, be sure not to miss it!

From the mind and heart of Mårten Jonsson, Star Sky unfolds like a beautiful poem that tells a different saga every time. Dodging the traditional conventions of gameplay, Star Sky can instead be enjoyed through its ambiance, the atmospheric sensations, and the satisfaction that the player creates with each conclusion. You may not always understand, but remember that this game takes place in the restless night. All the constraints of the story are as limitless as the sky itself.

Goodnight, and may you find what you're seeking beneath the stars.

I surprised myself when I realized I liked this game because you can never be sure about small indie games, but this one was pretty sweet to sit down to. No matter how many times you make the trek, you decide where to stop when the music lends you a hint... so it's really a path to discovery at your own pace. This is the kind of game where you might want to sit back one evening and just turn off the lights and play in the dark.

Game is about 1-1,5 hour long. For this price I demand more content.

I love the style of black items and bright background - like NightSky or LIMBO.
I even like the night theme here, but gameplay was quite different than I expected - probably I wishlisted game too early, without paying much attention just looking on the screen...

You have to replay game multiple times to get everything - the achievements, as well as ultimate ending, after getting all achievements (which is seeing the all events in game).
Which seems that "Lived Happy" together, but then she passed away?

You only go one direction... you can't go back... when you replay game, it's slow, when you are in first minutes, it seems to fast... Be really cautious - if you really seem to like idea, check the game. If you have mixed feelings, stay out.

I highly recommend Star Sky - ブ ル ー ム ー ン and Star Sky 2.
Two small games with refined and beautiful graphics, sublime soundtrack, a simple "story".
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=728814381
The achievements are easily won for those who are interested.
I really had a great time, very soothing, during the few hours I spent on those games.
Can't wait for the sequel !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Je recommande vivement Star Sky - ブルームーン et Star Sky 2.
Ce sont deux petits jeux avec des graphismes épurés et magnifiques, une BO sublime, une "histoire" simple.

Les succès sont faciles à obtenir pour ceux que cela intéresse.
Véritablement un bon moment apaisant passé pendant les quelques petites heures qu'ont duré ces jeux.
A quand le troisième !?

The first 20 run throughs where fun. The next 20 became a chore. Yes I eventually checked up online for a walkthrough which honestly didn't help as I suspect an apparent bug just wouldn't let some of events trigger no matter what I did. The result is.... I want my money back

A nice little walking game. The main point of this game is to let the player find or you can say complete all the path and objectives. The path and objectives can't be done in a single play, it took me like like 10 play or something.. Finding all of it is not that hard at all, don't worry.

Completed this in 54 minutes. Looked at a walkthrough for "The Company of Strangers", that's it.

Time to idle for the cards :p

I'm not sure I'd call it a game but I enjoyed it a short chill-out experience with nicely drawn minimalist graphics. while there isn't much overt story, it'll keep me occupied wondering what the heck is going on for a while. it is a good choice to unwind as nothing stressful happens whatsoever, although you could interpret the story in creepy ways. it does a good job of simulating a walk at night when you can't quite tell what things are, or a pleasant but confusing dream. the achievements took me a bit of thinking to work out and I think one was slightly bugged.
I can see how it might mess up the game to be able to go backwards, as there are very specific triggers and the logic would get confused by being able to go back and redo things in a different order, but I still would like there to be a wider margin of error with triggering things. sometimes I don't hear the event music in time and don't manage to stand in the exact right place.

This is a very relaxing, minimal game. Beautiful soundscape and scenery. Wouldn't buy it if it wasn't on sale, but worth the sale price.

I think I'm going to make this game a part of my daily gaming life.

If you feel that a gaming session has been rough, like an energetic yet tiring cardio workout, than this game is the winding down exercises that calms you and helps you unwind. Kind of like Tai Chi. This is more of an experience than a game, as you walk through a lovely evening landscape, going through different experiences. Some of them are quite magical. The whole game is all about relaxing and not rushing. While it only takes an hour to accomplish everything there is, I know I'm going to be revisiting this one quite a bit for its aesthetics and its meditative qualities.

Let me start off by saying first that Star Sky has a nice concept, but the content is not here. The attempt is there, it's a unique concept, but a far too expensive one with far too little content available.

My first impression from reading the description of the game was that there would be multiple roads to walk down, and it's ultimately left up to the player which roads to take. This is not the case. What you do is hold the right arrow key, continuously walk right, and stop whenever you hear music playing so that you can trigger events.

There are multiple ways to trigger events, and there are a total of 18 events to trigger; each one with their own achievement. However, in a mere 22 minutes I unlocked 14 of the 18 events. This game isn't very long at all, in 50 minutes I unlocked all of the events, and at an asking price of nearly $5.00 CAD it's just not worth it.

I could defend the value of the game if the graphics were more than 'stylish' silhouettes with backgrounds that would've taken a couple hours tops to make in Photoshop. The fact that Star Sky has the same look and feel to it that any browser based Flash game does really doesn't help to push this game at its selling price, either.

Rating: 2.0/5.0 - It's not awful, but it's not great.

Summary:
Star Sky is an atmospheric walking simulator with doubtful outlines of a story. All you do is just moving forward, and stopping in a specific moment when you hear magical sounds. That causes some event to happen, which also gives you an achievement. And... that's all, folks!

All you do is just trying to find all the right combination of positions where to stop, to unlock all achievements through several playthroughs. This should be a relaxing experience but to be honest, I think I'd be better relaxed if I just played my favourite music and closed my eyes, than after a hour of playing (moving forward in) Star Sky.

Pros:
- Nice atmosphere. All the effort goes there towards the visual style and ambient sounds.

Cons:
- Boring. I like most walking simulator games, but this is just trying combinations of events to see a magical nonsense.
- Short. Few minutes for those who will turn off and uninstall the game after the first playthrough. About an hour for those who want to get 100% achievements.

This is a very casual side-scrolling walking sim. It has an interesting premise. You walk a stretch of land throughout many playthroughs. Each time there is a possibility that a new event might happen. These events are triggered by desicions you make on the walk. Graphics are nice, and the music is relaxing and quite peaceful. Game is worth picking up for the low asking price, but if you feel it is too much, you can always wait for it to go on sale. I enjoyed my time with it.

Short and cute time wasting side scroller, if you're one of those people who like to play games to get 100% achievements, this is an easy target ;p.

Giving it a positive review as I like games like this that are more or less a pure time waster, however the price is indeed quite high for this low content thing that takes about 45 minutes to get all the achievements.

The concept is pretty good and if someone executes it properly it can make a great game.

Very comfortable to play, cute and silly, also quite charming in its own small indie way. For the fans of short and relaxing tiny stories that you'll be able to play in under an hour, you could use the time way worse.

This was a pleasant little walking simulator (2-D). The graphics were pretty and the music and overall vibe was soothing. You actually have to 100% the game to see the actual ending, but that wasnt really daunting at all and only took a little more than an hour all told. I liked the game. I thought it was nice, sort of heart warming, and really a treat to play. I wouldnt spend a ton on this, but I would definitely recommend owning it and trying it out.

8 roses leading to faerie realms and contentment out of 10 possible.

I really enjoyed this game, it's a very laid back story based game. 'It is a slow-paced game of exploring different choices. '

The price is really cheap but there is only 1 hour of gameplay - which I feel is fair for the price point.

When playing the game, the visuals and audio made me feel sleepy and very relaxed which I enjoyed. The whole game concept is unique in itself and I did truly enjoy the game.

You can only go forward in this game so it's best to just relax and take yourtime, instead of running through it all like I did and missing the cue points which are represented by music.

Feel free to watch my preview video for a better idea of the game. It's a ten minute preview.

Interesting "game". More like a visual novel walking stimulator without all the verbal dialogue with 12 events and 6 endings. Quite a lot to pack into a simple sidescroller with only 1 direction to walk. I do not recommend running unless the player wants to miss things.

Storyline: A gentleman takes a stroll on a moonlit night making choices along the way.

A pleasant game with soft soothing music that takes about an hour to explore all the variations. I enjoyed it.

Worth the price? Depends on your inclination. For achievement hunters there are 18 achievements.
