[Update: Early access release] Sky: Children of the Light is coming to Android, and you can pre-register right now

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.

This metaphorical single stone, which lets users craft notes, to-do lists, spreadsheets, and accumulate replies all on an in-line thread, is now available for early access on the Google Play Store.

PAYDAY: Crime War limited beta access live in the US, soft-launched in further regions

It's been a while since PAYDAY: Crime War popped up on my radar. Back in September of 2018, I went hands-on with the title. I came away unimpressed thanks to iffy controls, many signs of egregious monetization, and poor matchmaking. In the last eleven months, the game has apparently received a few updates, and so it is once again being tested in the US as a limited beta release. On top of this, the game was recently soft-launched in Sweden, Finland, Spain, the United Kingdom, Brazil, India, and Canada. So if you'd like to jump in to see how things are shaping up, now's your chance.

Bethesda's next mobile title, The Elder Scrolls: Blades, has entered early access on Android

The last we heard about The Elder Scrolls: Blades was back in November when the game was delayed to a release sometime in early 2019. Well, it would appear that we are finally inching closer to the official release date (whatever that may be) because The Elder Scrolls: Blades has gone live for those that were invited to the first wave of its early access.

Actions on Google opens to the public, developers now free to create custom voice actions for Google assistant

The Google assistant makes for a pretty awesome companion on the Pixel phones and Google Home, but it's still young and feels constrained by the very limited number of things it can do outside of Google's sandbox of supported services. During the October 4th announcement, Google declared plans to open up the platform in early December for developers to build their own services. Staying true to that schedule, the Actions on Google platform opened the door today, allowing developers to integrate their services. Google is also launching an early access program to begin testing new features and upcoming expansions.

The Play Store Early Access program seems to be rolling out to everybody

If you're the type of person that has to flash developer previews and sign up for every beta program available, being the first to try new apps is probably also pretty high on your list of things to do. Google has you covered. Announced last month during I/O, the Play Store is launching an "Early Access" program to give people like us a place to find apps that are mostly operational, but not quite ready for prime time. A few people found that they had early access to Early Access a few days ago, but now it looks like everybody is welcome to the club.
