Enter the paranoid universe of Skycell; a game you don't know your playing, a hostile environment where your mind takes a vacation, but your body is in a cage. The songs of Skycell are built from air bursts, glimmering chimes, sunken bass, metallic scrapes, and industrial crashes. As the tension looms you begin to realize you are in an elevated jail cell with no bars, where your only escape is to free fall to your demise.
