Sky, the next game from Journey developer thatgamecompany, will charge players in a unique way, which studio co-founder Jenova Chen believes will be “biggest breakthrough” of the upcoming social adventure game.
“I think many people will be surprised how this game makes money,” Chen said on the latest episode of our monthly interview show IGN Unfiltered. “I think my biggest breakthrough or innovation on this game is about how it actually charges people. This is something you probably have never seen before,” he added.
“Once you play the game, you will be interested because it’s a game where you pay money for other people, not yourself,” he added, but refrained from elaborating any further.
