We’re getting close to the release of Ubisoft Montreal’s Child of Light, and to keep the game one everyone’s radar, they’ve released a new making of video.  While these trailers can sometimes come across as self-congratulatory nonsense, this one gives some quality insight into the making of the game.  Read on to check it out.

If this is your first time hearing about Child of Light, let me bring you up to speed.  The game tells the story of Aurora, a young girl who succumbs to a deadly illness, only to wake up and find herself in the strange land of Lemuria.  At first, all she wants to do is get back to her father.  But the more time she spends in Lemuria, the more she comes to realize how much the people there need her.  A evil being known as the Queen of the Night has stolen Lemuria’s sun, moon and stars.  If Aurora can find them, and return them to the people of Lemuria, she might just find a way back to her father as well.  Envisioned as a painting brought to life, and written entirely in rhyme, Child of Light hopes to combine both RPG and platforming elements to create something truly unique.  Check out the making of feature below.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner? When’s the last time you heard that referenced as inspiration for a video game?  Child of Light will be released worldwide this April 30th for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Wii U.  To learn more about the game, and see more of its amazing artwork, check out the official website.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
