From Patrick Plourde, creative director of Far Cry® 3, and Jeffrey Yohalem, winner of the Writers Guild of America Award, comes Child of Light, a digital title developed under Ubisoft Montreals alternative label Funhouse.
Envisioned as a "playable poem" by its creators, Child of Light is a modern reimagining of our childhood fairy tales.
Set in the magical world of Lemuria, Child of Light takes us on the coming-of-age journey of Aurora, a young girl struggling to save a lost kingdom and her ailing father.
"Come, tuck yourself into bed
Let me tell a story.
Of Lemuria, a kingdom past
And a girl born for glory."
The daughter of the Duke of Carniola is transported to Lemuria, a mysterious world that needs her help. Identified as the Child of Light and granted the power of flight, she takes on the minions of Lemuria's Dark Queen in her quest to recover the sun, the moon, and the stars to return home. Along the way she'll discover that her destiny may be far greater than she ever dreamed.
"Beware the night, Child of Light."

The game will be available on April 30, 2014.
The Final Fantasy VI-inspired downloadable RPG will cost $14.99, and is set to release on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. The game was created using Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework, the engine that also powered Rayman Legends and Origins, as well as the upcoming Valiant Hearts.
Child of Light was created by a small team inside of Ubisoft, many of whom previously worked on Far Cry 3.
Child of Light is a platforming role-playing video game. The game puts players in the shoes of Aurora, a child stolen from her home, who, in her quest to return, must bring back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the mysterious Queen of the Night. Helped by her playable companion Igniculus the firefly and several unlikely allies, Aurora will face her darkest fears in this modern take on a coming-of-age story.
Child of Light centers around Aurora, a girl from 1895 Austria who contracts a physical ailment that causes her to fall asleep. Upon waking up, Aurora finds herself in the mythical world of Lemuria which has had its sun, moon and stars stolen by the Black Queen. Aurora is tasked with recovering the celestial bodies and ultimately reuniting with her father.
Honestly I was expecting a Rayman syle game here, bu in the last months, I realized how beautiful this game is.
Even just now, that I watched the new trailer on the Playstation channel on Youtube.
The level designs and the music...of the trailer at least, made me love it
