If you see another player in Sky: Children of the Light, simply walk up to them and light up your Candle. First, you reveal their appearance, but if you keep interacting with them, you can offer them a Candle. When you offer them a Candle, you also have to think of a nickname for them (don’t worry, you can change this later). If they accept your Candle, you will become friends. If you keep giving them more Candles, you can unlock emotes like High-Fire or the ability to chat with them.

To invite friends in Sky: Children of the Light, follow these steps. 

  • Make sure you and your friends have completed the tutorial (you complete the tutorial after you see the game’s logo as you fly towards the main island).
  • Open the menu and select Friends.
  • In the Friends menu, there’s an option called One-time friend invite. Select this.
  • It will open a window (like you see in the image above) with a unique QR code and a 12-character code.
  • Your friend needs to open the Sky Codes option from their end.
  • If your friend is playing on mobile, they can simply scan the code with their camera and accept your invitation. Steam, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch players have to use the 12-character code. Oh, and before you ask, yes, cross-play does work between all platforms.
  • Once your friend accepts the invitation, you’ll get a popup saying that you’ve become friends (like the image below).

To join a friend’s game in Sky: Children of the Light, visit the Friend Stone in the village square. If you can’t find the stone, simply exit and re-enter the game, and you will appear right in front of the stone. 

Interact with the stone, and you will see all your friends who are currently online. Select the friend you want to play with, and then pick the option that looks like a little stick-man going toward an arrow (the second option from the bottom).

Select this, and the screen should flash and take you to your friend’s game. If it doesn’t work, try again, as it can be finicky and may not always work. You can also ask your friend to join your game using the same method if you can’t visit their game.

Have fun playing Sky: Children of the Light with your friends.
