Acclaimed by journalists, twice by GDC's Independent Games Festival and ACMI, NightSky is an action-puzzle game that offers an ambient gameplay experience unlike any other on 3DS. It's a world with cerebral challenges that fill uniquely designed picturesque areas. Each of these areas is broken into different levels in which the player must maneuver a sphere by using realistic physics to advance. There are no enemies, no bosses, and no violence in NightSky.
An intuitive experience is friendly for casual and mainstream gamers. NightSky also offers a formidable challenge for hardcore players, with an unlockable Alternative mode. The original soundtrack by experimental jazz musician Chris Schlarb will further heighten the surreal 3D experience.
