One of my Patreon patrons asked me to play CHILD OF LIGHT on Try-It Tuesday, so I downloaded the free demo for PS4 this week and dedicated the livestream to them (thanks, Counterserum!).
I don’t know much about the storyline, since the demo dropped me into chapter four, “The Deep Dark Well,” but apparently the protagonist is a girl with wings named Aurora, and she is searching the land of Lemuria for the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars.
Aurora’s blue flame friend Igniculus can be controlled by a single player or is available as a multiplayer option. Other characters join her party and participate in battles against giant spiders, flaming hounds, and boar men. Combat is turn-based.
CHILD OF LIGHT is a 2D side-scroller with beautiful, watercolor-style artwork inspired by Studio Ghibli and Yoshitaka Amano. The dialog is written as a sort of nursery rhyme or poem, in keeping with its fairy tale theme.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, this game is available for PC, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Wii U. Rated “E 10+” for Everyone age 10 and up.
