Oops, I accidentally started my Steam account with Sky PC Steam Next Fest and forgot to link it with my original account prior. How do I unlink and start the process over?
No worries, it can happen to the best of us! Follow the instructions below carefully:
Note: Be sure to have your original Sky account saved first with an external account like Google/AppleID/etc. before starting this process!
- Go to your mobile device and make sure you have updated Sky
- Start up Sky, choose ‘Sign In Method’ at the bottom
- Log in with your Steam account that you accidentally linked your Sky PC account to
- Go to the top right-hand corner in-game, hit the cog wheel for options
- Go to Account and link it to an extra or spare Game Service account (e.g.: another Gmail account) that is not associated with your original Sky account
- In the same Account window, hit the icon next to your Steam ID to unlink it and confirm
- Restart Sky, and choose ‘Sign In Method’ again at the bottom
- Log in with the appropriate external account your original Sky account is attached to
- After you verify you are back on your original Sky account, go to the top right-hand corner in-game with the cog wheel
- Go to Account, and link your Steam account properly
Congratulations, you are good to go and play Sky PC!

How does the Steam chat work in Sky?
To chat with other players in Sky we have multiple options available. Within the game, this feature can be unlocked between friends using in-game currency or is available for a limited time while sitting in a chat-enabling space such as a bench. You can read more about in-game chatting here: https://thatgamecompany.helpshift.com/hc/en/17-sky-children-of-the-light/faq/497-how-do-i-chat-with-other-players/
Additionally, Steam’s Chat Client will function identically to other Steam-supported games. This chat client is a separate pop-out window that can be accessed while in-game. Using this feature you can only chat with your Steam friends via a direct message or voice call, you cannot connect with other Sky players via the Steam Chat Client.
If you need any more help, please do not hesitate to reach out to Sky Support!
