“Child of Light” is one of the greatest games I’ve ever played. Unlike many gamers I didn’t really get into gaming till after the side-scroller generation of Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. So I had never played anything like “Child of Light” before, not just in its format, but also in its content.
The whole game felt like it was drawn straight from a children’s storybook, in a good way. Not to discourage any adult-gamers, but I felt like I could have read a transcript of this story to a child.
