Ubisoft has unveiled a new walkthrough video for their turn-based RPG Child of Light, offering an inside look at the magical world of Lemuria. To help us wander through the quite unique looking title is Ubisoft's lead programmer Brianna Code, who has more than 10 years of games programming experience behind her belt.
Child of Light is a re-imagining of classic fairy-tales, inviting players on an epic adventure into the magical painted world of Lemuria. Players will uncover mysteries, participate in turn-by-turn combat inspired by classic JRPGs, and explore a mystical kingdom. The game puts players in the shoes of Aurora, a child stolen from her home, who, in her quest to return, must bring back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the mysterious Queen of the Night. Helped by her companion Igniculus the firefly and several unlikely allies, Aurora will face her darkest fears, including dragons and other mystical creatures in this modern take on a coming-of-age story.
Created by a small team of seasoned developers based in Ubisoft Montreal, Child of Light has been developed utilising the UbiArt Framework, a unqiue engine that lets programmers and artists bring their art to life by allowing original concept art to be inserted unedited into the game world. Thanks to this feature the effect that Child of Light plays onto is that of stepping into an interactive painting.
Child of Light will be available come 2014 on PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Check it out in action below.
