Rayman Origins Summary
It’s Ubisoft’s 30th birthday! Congrats, Ubi! To celebrate, they’re giving out free stuff. Right now it’s Splinter Cell, and next week it will be Rayman Origins, which is a tremendously terrific 2D platformer.
Far Cry 3's creative director is behind Ubisoft Montreal's Child of Light, which is built using the same UbiArt Framework engine that powers Rayman Origins. It's a 2.5D platforming adventure.
We play as Aurora, a young princess who must fight the Black Queen who has "stolen the Sun, the Moon and the Stars." It's got a rather fetching art style for this JRPG-inspired adventure.
Using the UbiArt Framework engine from Rayman Origins, Ubisoft has announced Child of Light from Far Cry 3 creative director Patrick Plourde. It's a side-scrolling "fairytale game" that's due out this holiday.
It embodies the "Squaresoft spirit" of PSOne era JRPGs Final Fantasy VIII and Vagrant Story, describes the publisher. Plourde created Child of Light as a "counter-point" to Far Cry.
It looks like another Rayman game is coming down the pike, as Ubisoft has registered two new domains for RaymanLegends.com and Rayman-Legends.com.
The demo for one of the freshest platformers in many a moon, Rayman Origins, is now available on Steam. Gamers who want to check out the demo can do so from the Steam app or from the official game page . The demo is a mere 845GB.
