Light Shard event kids don’t drop wax or candles


Sky: Children of the Light is an Adventure and Puzzle game developed and published by Thatgamecompany. It was initially released on iOS in 2019, followed by an Android and Nintendo Switch version.

The game allows players to solve mysteries, help others, and create pleasant memories in a bustling kingdom. The Sky: Children of the Light’s Shard event rewards players with high candles at the end of the event.

However, many players (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, seven, 8) report an issue where the Sky: Children of the Light’s Shard event does not drop wax or light.

Also, found remains should usually drop wax and candles after clearing the darkness around a broken shard. But this is not currently the case for many Nintendo Switch and iOS Users.


I just did today’s shard event. I burned all of it, got the cutscene that I finished but got no light. It’s my first time today, so I don’t understand what went wrong. (not my first sharing event but just today’s event)

Although we love the hard work of the sky team. On Switch, shard event does not drop wax/candles. I ran it twice to see that it wasn’t my final problem and got nothing both times.

However, it seems that the Shard event works fine for most Android users, as the buggy v0.18.5 update is not yet available. So, players can play the game on an Android phone as a temporary workaround for now.

At least my un-updated Android phone lets me collect wax from burning shards, which is more than my Switch does.

Luckily, the developers are indeed aware of the issue and have even listed the problem in the known issues page after the new patch v0.18.5.

Switch, iOS, and Huawei users cannot collect light during eruptions in the Forest Temple.

As we mentioned before, the bug seems to mainly affect Switch and iOS users, but for some strange reason, Huawei users are also affected.

That said, we’ll update the article as there are further developments regarding the Shard event not dropping wax/light or candles.
