Child of Light
Child of Light is the type of game that the industry needs right now. Digital distribution is gaining popularity, and some of the oldest and largest publishers are struggling to adapt with the newer market trends. Some are stuck attempting to hit it big every few years with another large AAA title, or have ventured into the realm of free-to-play mobile titles. Ubisoft is well aware of where the market stands, and is mixing it up with AAA titles and smaller, more unique experiments. Child of Light is worth checking out, even if you don’t normally follow the role-playing genre. And although there are a few downsides, it is still one of the biggest surprises of 2014 so far.
