Sky: Children of the Light is coming to Android, and you can pre-register right now (Update: Arriving in April)

Sky: Children of the Light comes from Thatgamecompany, the same developer behind the critically-acclaimed titles Journey, Flower, and Flow. Sky offers an experience closest to that of Journey, where the player gets to explore a beautiful world in an effort to discover an evolving story that's told through meditative puzzle-based gameplay. Unlike Journey, Sky is a title that was built to focus more on a multiplayer aesthetic where players can easily team up with friends and strangers to journey through the world together while solving the game's many puzzles. Sky: Children landed on iOS at the tail end of last week, but it is also coming to Android sometime in the future, and you can pre-register on the Play Store right now.

That's perhaps a bit of a problem in the era of COVID-19. Niantic has rolled out some unexpected changes to the game, and they're probably aimed at making it more playable for people who want to stay home to avoid coronavirus.

Award-winning indie darling GRIS appears for pre-registration on the Play Store

Back in August of 2019, the gorgeous award-winning platformer GRIS was released on iOS, but at the time, there was no word if or when an Android port would arrive. As of this morning, the game has surprisingly popped up on the Play Store for pre-registration, though there is some text included in the listing that makes me question whether or not Devolver Digital is ready for a public reveal.
