I mentioned wanting to play the RPG Child of Light a while back. My brothers and I finished it a few months ago and it is just as beautiful as the trailer promised. It's not just the graphics--the music is remarkable. You can have a listen at the artist's website.

The gameplay is lots of fun--the battle system is quite original, and even just moving around the map is fun. And it can be two-player! Honestly, I don't know why companies don't make RPGs multiplayer more often.

The story is generally good, and the writing is uneven but it's genuinely trying to do something different. It's all written in rhyme and meter in this airy, fairy-taley way, but sometimes you can tell the writers needed more time to polish their verses. The ending felt rushed too. But these are minor quibbles. Overall, best RPG I've played in a long time.

How on earth can a game be this beautiful?

Other exciting things about this game:
  • little red-haired girl with sword!
  • "a gorgeous homage to classic 16-bit RPGs like Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger" 
  • "a script carefully written in the form of poetry"
  • "playing co-op is especially cool. One player is Aurora (the young girl who’s the main character) while the other is Igniculus, a glowing blue orb. Each one is completely different."
  • "a deep skill tree for each character in your party"
