It’s always a nice thing to see a project that has spent an extremely long time in development finally comes to fruition, as is the case with the gorgeous adventure game Widower’s Sky from developer Whaleo. We first heard about this game in March 2016, which was over 3 years ago, when it was looking for beta testers. The developer then stayed relatively quiet after that, so it was not until 2017 that we got reassurance that Widower’s Sky was still under development alongside a trailer.

Fast forward another year and Whaleo once again confirmed that the game was still going strong and we received another new trailer. And that brings us to last July, when Widower’s Sky was put up for pre-order on the App Store with the release date confirmed to be the 5th of September, that is, this Thursday. Finally, after what seems like forever, we will be able to get our hands on the finished product. The good news doesn’t end there, though, as the developer has gone through the trouble of making yet another trailer for the game just a couple of days before its product, and as you might expect, it’s incredibly beautiful. Check it out below:

In addition to the trailer, Whaleo also shared plenty of fun tidbits about the entire development process. It might astonish you that the studio consists of just one single person, a Canadian guy named Michael Warren, who is not even a full-time developer. He created this game during his free time over the course of 4 years. That’s some serious love and dedication right there. Also, as you can imagine, Widower’s Sky draws heavy inspirations from Journey and Monument Valley, both of which are Warren’s favorite games.
