There are some pieces of art that are just so mesmerizingly beautiful that they make us feel jealous of our own sad little lives and this horrible-horrible world!
They make you wish like a naïve child of 4 if you could somehow be a part of that world, that universe!
Child of Light is one such masterpiece!
Child of Light happens when beauty has a lovechild with elegance, godfathered by majesticity.
The game follows a fairy tale like story of a young girl called Aurora, who was stolen from her home and now in a far away land of magic and mystique, the mystery of her past and the threat of the present entwine in a very dream like, fantasy journey.
Child of Light is a n experience of beautiful art in motion.
First of all, let’s start with the artwork and graphics, the whole world is created in a water colored painting style, elegance in the motion of everything on the screen, heavenly background score that soothes your soul’s deepest and unknown thirsts and last but not the least the RPG battle and stats system, because it’s also a game as well, you guys.
Yes apart from the soothing and soul touching artistic features, the game is made in a side scrolling platform format and has a battle mechanism that mimics to that of found in FF XII and Persona 3.
Along with a stat building system that is somewhat relatable with the systems of Final Fantasy series.
The game is a literal masterpiece when there are even many small details that have been taken well care of, quite frankly the dialogues that take place as you roam around the mystique lands, castles, mountains, caves and whatnot, they are all in poetry, they rhyme and bring out that ancient mysterious medieval touch into the game with simple addition to a whole new level.
The Child of Light is a plain walk down your childhood’s imagination road. You might experience many forgotten ideas and smile worthy incidents that you forgot overtime, because we know we did, and we are some seriously twisted, sad group of people!
