Treasuring Time With Friends During Days of Love 2023
After all the excitement of year-end festivals and dancing to the best music that ever played alongside a stone dragon, it can be nice to simply relax in peaceful places with friends and familiar faces. With the arrival of Days of Love, players will have the opportunity to do just that.
Celebrating Connections Across Sky
From February 13th through 26th PST (UTC -8), Days of Love is the time to appreciate the relationships that connect us all through the game, in ways large and small. For starters, the event will feature Double Heart Gifting. Across the two weeks of Days of Love, all Hearts and Light Gifts sent while the event is active will be doubled for the recipient.
(Due to the nature of the Double Heart feature, this feature will become enabled at approximately 00:00 PST on the 13th, and continue until approximately 23:59 on the 26th.)
Home takes on a warm and inviting appearance, with a freshly redecorated pier offering a welcoming place to gather. A soft mist adds its ambience, offering up to a certain amount of Light each day, particularly during the first week of the event.
The Auspicious Visitor Spirit that you may recognize from Days of Fortune will return for a visit, ready to say hello again as the Event Guide. Head over to greet them, and you’ll find they offer a few trinkets to mark the occasion.
New for this year is a prop, one that could add a floral element to any Shared Space. And of course, they’ll have another batch of flower crowns, for any Sky children who didn’t have the chance to pick one up last year.
Days of Love Flowery Archway: 100 Candles
Days of Love Flower Crown: 15 Hearts
The Event Guide is also bringing a box of spells for the Days of Love Gondola, in case some time spent gently gliding above the water is what you’re looking for. Check out the Sleepy Traveling Merchant’s boat nearby, too, to pick up some paper crane-shaped message spells.
Themed IAP for this year’s Days of Love event will be available from the in-game shop in the main menu: a neck accessory that adds a touch of class, and an item that launches glittering heart-shaped fireworks into the sky.
Days of Love Classy Cravat: $4.99
Days of Love Serendipitous Scepter: $14.99
Feel free to take the celebration outside of Home, too! The gate to the Secret Area accessible from the Vault of Knowledge is open to everyone, to enjoy a bit of silliness with friends and maybe one of the odd Dark Crabs in the area, for those who really want to get into the spirit of the event.
The Secret Area is the place to go if you’ve had your eye on any Days of Love items from previous years, or on extra snowball versions of the ball spell Check in with special Spirits there who offer these items:
Days of Love Mask: 15 Hearts
Days of Love Gondola Pack / Seesaw Pack / Swing Pack: $19.99 each (every pack includes 35 Season Candles)
As always, trial spells will be offered for all cosmetics available as IAP and for in-game currency. Find them from the Sleepy Traveling Merchant in Home and in the Secret Area accessible from Vault of Knowledge. Days of Love runs from 00:00 on February 13th until 23:59 on February 26th PST (UTC -8) and will be available to anyone who has progressed through at least Hidden Forest.
Days of Love Screenshot Challenge
We’re also celebrating the event with a screenshot challenge! From 12:00 noon February 13 through 16 at 12:00 noon PST, take a screenshot of your own avatar in the decorated Days of Love event space or using any of the event items for a chance to win in-game prizes!
Enter by posting your screenshot on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #SkyDaysOfLove23, or in special threads on Discord and Facebook that we’ll open once the challenge begins. Entries can include friends, but they must feature your own Sky character to be counted. Image embellishments, filters, and flair are allowed but should be family friendly and without inappropriate themes or content.
Please note that only one entry will be counted per person, and prizes cannot be transferred to others. Entries will close on February 16 at 12:00 noon PST.
Each winner will receive a Days of Love Serendipitous Scepter and three Crane message spells. Five winners will be randomly selected. Winners can expect to be contacted and announced by the end of February 23. Best of luck to those taking part in the challenge!
Whether taking part in the screenshot challenge, drifting gently over the water with a friend, or getting to know a nearby moth, Spirit, or favorite Dark Crab, we hope everyone will enjoy Days of Love! Share your feedback and posts with us on social media with #thatskygame, or in the channels on our Discord server as well. See you in the skies!
