Child of Light trailer shows gorgeous watercolour wonderland

Sidescrolling RPG, Child of Light, is looking extremely pretty, which isn't surprising considering the fact it's built on the powerful UbiArt tools Ubisoft used to make the modern Rayman games. This time the developers, led by Far Cry 3 director Patrick Plourde, are drawing aesthetic inspiration from Final Fantasy and Vagrant story to create a washed-out watercolour ambiance for the fantasy world of Lemuria.

Child of Light announced by Ubisoft: a painterly homage to JRPGs

Continuing with the Ubi announcements, Child of Light is the last dribble of PC relevant news to come out of Digital Days event. Like Valiant Hearts, it's based on the UbiArt framework, only instead of a dog, this JRPG homage promises "vile wolves". I'd imagine they're much less pettable. It's being created by Patrick Plourde, the creative director of Far Cry 3, and if the trailer is anything to go by, this game will be much lighter on the tigers, drug fields and hallucinatory disco knife fights.
