Child of Light is one of those games a mature gamer might overlook based on its visual appearance alone. But then somehow out of your own control, you manage to see the game in motion and realize that this is actually a creative mash up of game-styles we've all come to love. It's a fusion of styles that people of all ages can appreciate. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, powered by the Rayman engine, Child of Light is an artsy fairy tale with influences from turn-based JRPGs. Its a combo that makes for a surprisingly satisfying experience.
