Child of Light
is a platformer with RPG elements. The sidescroller features a beautiful 2D art style inspired by artist Yoshitaka Amano and by films from Japan's Studio Ghibli. The game mixes platforming action with turn-based RPG storytelling.
In 1895, Aurora, the protagonist, awakens from sleep in a mysterious world called Lemuria where the sun, moon, and stars have been stolen by the Queen of the Night. It falls on Aurora's shoulders to get them back and return home. On the way, Aurora will encounter numerous creatures, strange places, and dungeons to conquer.
- Colorful Art Style | 2D, platforming RPG inspired by games like Limbo and the art of Studio Ghibli.
- Solo or Team Up With a Friend | A second player can play as protagonist Aurora's firefly companion, Igniculus, and help her along the way.
- Fairytale Inspired, But Challenging | Meet many characters along the way during Aurora's adventures, including wicked witches and singing mice in this fairytale-inspired game. Though danger is around each corner, sometimes lurking in the game's multiple dungeons.

Ubisoft's Child of Light is an experiment of sorts from the company known best for churning out Assassin's Creed every year. Based on the same UbiArt Framework that classic platformer Rayman uses, Child of Light is a side-scrolling, 2D (but gorgeously rendered) turn-based RPG about a girl who dies and winds up trapped in the fantasy world of Lemuria, striving desperately to get back to her grieving father.
