Sky Assemblies Kicks Off in July!
Hi Sky Kids!
I’m Amelia Razinha, and I’m Robert Wing. We’re two of the folks working on the Sky Assemblies in-person event program at thatgamecompany.
We’re writing to you all today because we want to talk about our first Sky Assembly event, taking place on July 21 from 9 AM to 2 PM at Rose Park Roasters’ Pine Avenue location in Long Beach, California. We announced Sky Assemblies back at AnimeJapan in March and have been chomping at the bit to officially get it out in front of you all.
We’ve built what we think are some fun activities, and opportunities for passionate Sky fans to come together and create lasting friendships. We’re very excited to give it all a road test and get feedback from players before our first wave of fan-run events begin later this year. The dates and locations for those events will come later, but we’ve been working with volunteer hosts around the world and plan to share more in the not too distant future.
Safety is also something we’re taking very seriously with Sky Assemblies, and we want to touch on the COVID situation. While case numbers are generally in decline around the world, we recognize that the pandemic is not over and there is still risk when people gather together. Each of our events will be in compliance with local guidance, but broadly speaking, we strongly encourage vaccinations and boosters, and ensuring that you are COVID-free before attending a Sky Assemblies event. Additionally, when not eating or drinking, masks are always a great idea, as is regular hand washing.
With that in mind, we’re going to be flexible about our plans based on case numbers. If we need to make changes to scheduled events in order to prioritize attendee safety, we won’t hesitate to do so.
All of that out of the way, if you’re in Southern California and want to meet other players and help us test out Sky Assemblies, we cordially invite you to join the North American Sky community team on July 21 for a morning of coffee, snacks, activities, performing emotes IRL, and more.
Thanks for reading, and be on the lookout for more news about Sky Assemblies on our official social media channels. We’ll see some of you in person!
