‘Child of Light’ – Harnessing Your Childhood Memories

Analog Addiction writes: "When we were children the world was an easier place, allowing us more time to enjoy the finer things in life. When I think of my childhood, I envision my time spent in front of the TV, basking in the array of magical whimsy that classic children’s films provided. It was a beautiful time, and in many ways, these films shaped my life, and allowed me to be who I am today. Though films were merely one facet, these beautiful moments were also given to me in the form of gorgeous children’s books, allowing myself to be whisked away in the fantastical world the author had created.

Few games have been able to correctly portray these classical adventures from children’s films, fairy tales and books. When I think of successful releases that capture the essence of my fond childhood memories, I think of Unfinished Swan, and Puppeteer. Both titles provided an experience that could rival the classic Disney films of yonder years, or the visual splendour that a child’s picture book could give. Ubisoft Montreal has now given me another experience like these, one that truly captured these beautiful memories; this experience is found in Child of Light." (Child of Light, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)
