Rayman Origins Summary
Personally, one of my favourite games of the 90s was the original Rayman - a 2D platformer starting a 'man' with no limbs and floating hands/feet for whatever reason. It debuted on the Sony PlayStation - but a prototype for a SNES version was coming along nicely before it was ultimately shelved.
Why'd you still be looking for something to play in this particular month of the year is a question we'd usually ask; but if you're seriously still without gaming goods, Ubisoft has your back. Sort of.
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.
