Product Description

From Patrick Plourde – Creative Director of Far Cry 3 – and Jeffrey Yohalem – winner of the Writers Guild of America Award – comes Child of Light, a digital title developed under Ubisoft Montreal‘s alternative label Funhouse.

Envisioned as a “Playable Poem” by its creators, Child of Light is a modern reimagining of our childhood fairy tales.

Set in the magical world of Lemuria, Child of Light takes us on the coming-of-age journey of Aurora, a young girl struggling to save a lost kingdom and her ailing father.

“Come, tuck yourself into bed Let me tell a story. Of Lemuria, a kingdom past And a girl born for glory.”

The daughter of the Duke of Carniola is transported to Lemuria, a mysterious world that needs her help. Identified as the Child of Light and granted the power of flight, she takes on the minions of Lemuria’s Dark Queen in her quest to recover the sun, the moon and the stars to return home. Along the way she’ll discover that her destiny may be far greater than she ever dreamed.

“Beware the night, Child of Light.”

Key Features

  • A Playable Poem : In an homage to the Golden Age of illustration (Arthur Rackham and Gustave Dore), Child of Light invites you to discover a forgotten kingdom skillfully hand drawn and beautifully rendered with watercolor thanks to the UbiArt Engine. Complemented with a story carefully crafted in verse and rhyme and an original soundtrack by Montreal composer Coeur de Pirate, the breathtaking scenery of Lemuria extends an invitation to explore a long lost world.
  • The Rich World of Lemuria: Across your journey through Lemuria you will encounter many eccentric creatures, from spirits of the forest to talking mice to wicked witches and evil sea serpents. Discover a vast land with iconic locations and exciting dungeons that will evolve as Aurora regains the stolen lights.
  • Classic RPG Turn-Based Combat : Child of Light utilizes an Active-Time Battle System, allowing you to fight alongside the firefly Igniculus and other members of Aurora’s party. Level up to upgrade your stats and use your skill points to unlock unique abilities for your character and your party members. A deep crafting system allows you to combine gems to improve your sword, talisman and armor abilities. Each game has a unique gem profile, meaning that gems common in one player’s game are rare in another’s and vice-versa, encouraging the community to trade gems with friends.
  • Solve Puzzles and Search for Mysteries :Using the power of light, Aurora and Igniculus must work together to solve puzzles involving shadows and movable objects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible game but beware of Uplay May 1, 2014
Verified Purchase
No seriously, it's a glorious game.

Just beware that buying it here on Amazon will mean signing up for Ubisoft's "Uplay" service, which appears to be yet another steam knock-off. Have fun trying to create yet another account for yet another thing. Revel as you spend ~10 minutes having it tell you over and over that your password is wrong or the username you want is taken, when really you just wanted to play a single game.

Maybe you think Uplay is cool, maybe you already have an account there. Sweet. But if you're sick of making and managing accounts for one new service after another, just go buy this on Steam instead.

EDIT: Apparently you need Uplay even if you buy it on Steam, which--just--I can't even--the mind, it boggles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute little game. May 11, 2014
(I played this on a PS4 FYI on hard skill level, I am 44 years old)

I can totally see a dad and their pre-teen daughter playing this game for hours together. The game itself doesn't try to be anything more then what the cover looks like. You are Princess Aurora and you have to find your way back to your father, who thinks you're dead. Along the way you meet a lot of colorful characters and explore a pretty imaginative and colorful world. Think "Alice in Wonderland" without all of the creepiness, lol.

It's a turn based RPG, that can be a little challenging at times (the monsters I mean). It's not hard to play at all or pick up how to play, pretty basic actually as far as RPG's go. The developers describe it as a "playable poem" and I think that's fair. While there is "crafting" it's pretty basic and not complicated. You basically combine gems to make more powerful gems for attacks and resistances, that's it.

The world itself is pretty colorful and creative, again nothing fancy. I do like the "little" things that you see in the background, like a monster or a tree, not so much what you see in front of you. It's a form of foreshadowing, which is definitely literary. Yes, developers, I notice these things. :)

Bottom line, this is a cute game you can play with your kids or on your own that tells a story about a Princess trying to find her way home. There were a few times I caught myself smiling. I think it was a little over-hyped but all in all a good game.

(EDIT: IGN has this game at a 9.3 which is WAY too high. Looking back if I had not bought into the hype I probably never would have bought it. It's a "cute" game, but nothing ground breaking. It's worth the $15 but remember you get what you pay for.)

By Adam B.
(Just to clarify, I played this on Xbox One, but the experience should be similar on all platforms, as I've watched multiple people playing it on various systems.)

Overall:
This game has flaws, but whatever they are, they don't matter. It gets so much right, that focusing on the few problems it does have is doing yourself a disservice. Within the first few hours, I lost myself in the experience, and began keeping track of the number of times this had given me chills. By the end, there were far too many instances to count.

Visuals/Sound/Presentation:
The art alone, through the Ubi Art framework engine, is worth purchasing the game. It's a storybook come to life, and seeing it in person is the only way to really feel the full impact of it. Working in tandem with the soft pianos, somber strings, and desperate tone of the game left me in a peaceful trance for the bulk of the time with it (took me around 15 hours, but I tend to over-explore when playing RPGs).

If this weren't unique enough, the entire story line (all the text, dialogue, and narration) is told through rhymes, except in a couple of comedic instances. Sure, some of the rhymes may be a stretch, but that is unavoidable with the sheer amount of dialogue. The story started off as any fairy tale, and although some of this has been seen before, the characters and world felt unique enough that I never felt bored. In fact, I more often found myself stunned by the plot, either through the way it was told or how it was presented.

Gameplay:
This is a semi-turn based RPG, but with a bit more influence between turns. Playing skillfully becomes necessary on later chapters, and can influence whether or not an enemy (or yourself) may actually get a turn to attack.

**** This review is for the PS3 version, but since Amazon is selling only the PC--and the entire game content/design/etc. is the same across platforms, I think it's fair to review it here ****

GRAPHICS & TECHNICAL

I downloaded the demo to this because I loved how it looked, though I knew nothing else about it. The demo covers game play in chapter 4 (there are 10 total). I was immediately struck by how pretty this game is. The game remains very nice to look at throughout, without frame rate stutters. Technically, I had no glitches at all with the game, in fact, and its load times are also unusually short.

STORY

All character dialogue is in the form of rhymes. These are fairly cute and didn't wear on me as some others have found. The story itself is at times convoluted. It's a pretty standard fairy tale framework, so quite accessible, but nothing really remarkable.

GAMEPLAY & DIFFICULTY

This is an RPG with a party of characters (up to around 6 at the end). There is no economy, and little to do besides flying around looking for chests, jewels, enemies to fight. Inventory is filled entirely by finishing fights and finding items in the world. Many people, myself included, will thus be inclined to hoard their potions and find themselves at the end of the game flush with them, having grown used to getting through fights without relying too much on items.

The only crafting is of jewels (called oculi). There is a tip in the crafting section on recipes but I recommend looking online right off the bat for some more, else you'll miss some of the available gem types.
