Described as a "playable poem", Child of Light is a 2D Role Playing Game set in a colourful fairy tale world. The game features classic RPG turn based combat, a deep crafting system, over 200 unlockable skills, a co-op mode and a vast hand painted watercolour world to explore. In this first behind the scenes video, Ubisoft explains how they managed to create such a fluid and soft graphic style without compromising gameplay.
I am beyond excited to play this game. Not only do I love RPGs but the mood, story and graphic style of Child of Light just speaks to me. It reminds me of my childhood illustrated book, classic Disney movies, my art school days that were mostly spent painting with watercolours and inks and playing old school RPG games all at once.
Child of Light will be available as a digital download for PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U on April 30th.
