Child of Light - Co-Op Trailer
Take a look at this co-op trailer for Ubisoft's Child of Light, releasing on April 30, 2014.
All flash and no substance. I'm all for the artful games like limbo, journey and a lot of the indie titles but it looks like Ubisoft have taken a look at them and decided to jump on the band wagon (what with the popularity of indie games right now) but in doing so have forgotten the actual game play. Looks pretty yes but indies also have great original gameplay that either makes you think or tests your reactions, this just looks shallow. It's a platformer where you don't actually have to do any platforming because you can fly through the levels? And to try and make it original they give you a white orb to use to interact with things, if you're going to add co-op/twin stick aspects then take a leaf out of The Puppeteer's book, don't just stick another thing on the screen. I might be wrong as this is the first I have heard of the game but from this trailer I saw nothing that puts this in the same league as many of the indies out there, it's just looks pretty but shallow although I hope I'm wrong.
I can see this will bring back the love of gaming artful experiences likes Castlevania:SOTN and Ōkami.
@JohnnyNeat "Bring it back"? Have you not played Journey, Limbo, Unfinished Swan or any number of recent indie titles. Or do you just play games from big budget companies? If you like arful experiences they have been numerous recently
@Brando008 Yes looks and sounds great but someone please tell me...where is the gameplay?
