I started playing Sky again in October of 2022. I was at a point in my life where I went through multiple inexplicable traumas and was searching for a way to heal by trying to do things I used to love, like playing games.
I’d previously played Sky a while after its inception. I didn’t manage to finish the game back then, but it was always in the back of my head. I don’t know what urged me to start playing it again, but I’m glad that I did, because the journey that ensued was wholesome and full of healing.
Sky players are some of the kindest people I’ve come across and the friends and memories I made here are something I will always cherish. I met my best friend here, who is thousands of miles away from me across the ocean whom I hope to meet someday. Connecting with the people here and interacting with my best friend in Sky healed me in a way I didn’t imagine. It helped me get back on my feet and the state of my mental health was getting better. I was even able to perform well in my academics due to that. That is the power of kindness and compassion that people hold.
It’s been 5 months and this game and my Sky friends have been a part of my life ever since. Sky is beyond a game, regardless of your gender, age, race, religion or country. In the game we’re all Sky kids beaming from light within, with a heart full of hope.
