Child of Light

Child of Light is a 2D RPG that combines the elements of modern platformers and Japanese role-playing games. It was developed by Ubisoft Montreal, a subsidiary of Ubisoft which also collaborated in the development of Far Cry and Assassin Creed games. Child of Light tells the story of Aurora, a young girl who has to save the kingdom of Lemuria. When playing, we influence Aurora's development and witness her rough journey to adulthood. The game is presented in a perspective typical for platform games, and the turn-based combat system is inspired by the jRPG genre. During her adventures, Aurora explores a vast, living world, where she encounters friendly fairies, gnomes, and sneaky monsters. Child of Light offers single player and multiplayer modes. In the latter, the second player takes on the role of a friendly firefly.

Child of Light is an unique two-dimensional role playing game, developed by one of Ubisoft subsidiaries. The title was created by a 30-or-so-people team of experienced game developers under the direction of Patrick Plourde, a longtime Ubisoft employee, who worked on, among others, Assassin's Creed series and Far Cry 3.

Child of Light players can experience a purebred RPG with gameplay model set somewhere between Final Fantasy VI and Limbo. Similarly to games by Japanese studio Vanillaware (Odin Sphere and Dragon's Crown), exploration takes the style of traditional two-dimensional beat 'em ups and platform games. Combat is turn-based, like in typical jRPG’s. The story is character-driven, and it focuses on the protagonist’s way to maturity. In her journey she encounters many adversities and dangers lurking at every corner of this original fantasy world.

Child of Light was created with a 2D engine, called Ubi Art Framework – the one known from Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends. It gave the developers a measure of freedom, and enabled them to bring their designs to life. This is really important, since the artwork is inspired by works of both Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy series) and Hayao Miyazaki (films by Studio Ghibli), as well as the best book illustrations of such artists as Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac. What we see on the screen looks like conceptual graphics and pictures came to life.
