Child Of Light - Preview @ PushSquare

PushSquare posted a new preview for Child Of Light. The writer sounds impressed with the game from it's first showing to the public.

The second UbiArt-powered game to be unveiled at Ubisoft’s Digital Days 2013 event, Child of Light – which is launching on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 – was pitched to us as “a JRPG for those that don’t have the time to invest a hundred hours into a game”. While this quote may trouble some hardcore JRPG fans, know that the title is shaping up to be something very special.

In a world and story that’s being kept tightly under wraps, you play as a little princess called Aurora and are accompanied by Igniculus, a firefly. In our hands-on demo, the duo inhabited the ‘dream world’. When we pressed for details as to just what that meant, it was revealed that the game takes place between Aurora’s reality and her dreams, although the details pertaining to the relevance of either were not given.

Child of Light is one of those rare games that we believe can appeal to core and casual gamers alike. It manages to remain compelling without excluding anyone, and the simplified action is much more engaging than it may initially seem. With an interesting premise, solid gameplay mechanics, stunning art direction, and captivating music, we’ll be keeping a very close eye on this one.
