Child of Light, the upcoming RPG by Ubisoft has a distinctive art style that is meant to make it stand out in front of other video games. This making-of video details the creation and the inspiration behind this unique art.
There are plenty of games out there with outstanding concept art. However, that art rarely translates into the final product. With Child of Light, the art is actually taken and put directly into the game. The art, which is inspired by 18th century artists takes on a water color like appearance. The essence of the game, is essentially the translation of a painting and making that painting interactive and playable.
The Story of Child of Light is focused on a young girl from 1895 Austria who falls asleep after contracting a physical ailment named Aurora. When she wakes up, Aurora is in the world of Lemuria which has been plagued by the Black Queen’s magic and has had it’s sun, moon and stars stolen.
Aurora is tasked with making the world of Lemuria normal again and ultimately she reunites with her father, a duke. The game is a platformer side scroller RPG with a distinctive beautiful art style.
Child of Light will be released for the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on April 30th with a price tag of £11.99.
