Child Of Light - Preview Roundup #2

by Couchpotato, 2013-09-16 00:12:47

Here are two more previews for the recently announced Child Of Light.


Patrick Plourde has previously stated that his upcoming RPG, Child of Light, would essentially be the opposite of Far Cry 3. On top of making it a modern fairy tale, he also hopes to use the game's two-player mode to help parents bond with their children.

The intention is evident through the game's story structure. Young princess Aurora sets out to save the kingdom of Lemuria, accompanied only by an unnamed companion sprite, who illuminates the game world, assists during combat, and generally acts as a faithful guide.

Child of Light is a tantalising prospect; a role-playing game inspired by the likes of Final Fantasy, created using the same technology that powers one of this generation's best platformers, Rayman Legends.

The result is a dazzling hand-drawn world, a whimsical story inspired by fairy tales, and a traditional turn-based battle system where monsters and allies wait to engage blows and magic attacks.

Not only is it a pleasant surprise that Western publisher Ubisoft is tackling the dormant genre, but the fact that it comes from the creative team behind Far Cry 3 makes it all the more intriguing.
