When I first joined Sky, I got all the way to the start of Hidden Forest before I realized that this game was connected to other players. There were real people playing Sky alongside me! I'll never forget the first player I ever talked to. They were in Hidden Forest social space. They led me around a little bit, answered my many questions, as I remained confused about just how big Sky was.
We never did add each other and become proper friends, but I'll never forget you, my special bench friend. Sky reminded me of the kindness in people and gave me hope.
