When I initially approached the game, Sky, I assumed it would be like any other random game you can find on the internet-Where the object of the game is to collect as many points by shooting something in the sky.

What I didn’t expect was for it to replicate what I should expect in real life.

In Sky you have to avoid weights which symbolize the things in life that weigh you down, like debt.

The weight makes your cloud, which is you, drop to a lower altitude. If you obtain balloons it represents the things in life that propel you forward and help you obtain success. The balloons make your cloud rise to a higher altitude.

If you have a clock it means you have a limited amount of time to do something. This is also like debt because it weighs you down.

“In real life its never easy to balance the things that weigh you down with the things that lift you up, all while fighting against time.”

Life after high school is likely paying bills for more things than you can really count, working a job, trying to continue your education, finding time for a social life, forming hobbies and dealing with family all while planning for the future. It’s not going to be easy, and neither was this game once I realized the game’s purpose and what it was meant to teach anyone who plays.
