Child of Light announced

While waiting for a HQ version of the announcement trailer, here are the first images and artworks of Child of Light, developed by Ubisoft Montreal using the Ubiart engine developed for Rayman Origins/Legends. Beautiful, to say the least.
Update: Added the trailer :)

This looks lovely! I was a little iffy on the character designs, but in motion they are wonderful. The animations blow the screenshots away.

I hope that the gameplay design's quality can parity that of the art direction; projects this beautiful always bring out the cynic in me. I worry that Child of Light will end up visually arresting but intellectually bland...

Looks awesome! But I think all Ubisoft developers must be divorced. They always work on something and usually on multiple projects. :-)

Nice premise, very interesting! Though I have a bad feeling about the combat...

... and the independent developers of the world will take us back to the root of what gaming is all about in its purest form.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My foremost concern is the quality of game design and user experience. I don't actually care about the exploitation of whales much if it doesn't hurt the game. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX So then top players stop wearing their loot so that they don't get matched with noobs? Sounds like a bad plan. Hopefully anything that implements this stuff leans heavily on ELO first. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts Fuck!!! it just came to me, this type of Micro Transactions Match Making (MTMM) based system will mostly be used to explore children and teenagers. And other companies will follow suit. Jesus... (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts "For example, in one implementation, the system may include a microtransaction engine that arranges matches to influence game-related purchases". Today is a really fucking bad and depressing day. (1 Hour ago)

    docLEXfisti Yes, EA totally ruined that franchise. DS1 was awesome, DS2 was still great, DS3 was... different (3 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus *i mean dead space 2. from people who jumped from the first expecting a same game, felt a bit lukewarm a nd a game that was molding it self for the tropes of that gen. (4 Hours ago)
