Child of Light, Ubisoft’s beautiful side-scrolling RPG, was not the end of our adventures in Patrick Plourde’s fantasy realm of Lemuria.
Child of Light was a passion project for Plourde, who in fact agreed to do Far Cry 3 on the condition he could then work on his choice of game.
This paid off for Ubisoft, as the RPG went on to make “plenty” of money, and also for us: following Child of Light and Far Cry: Blood Dragon, the publisher has shown a willingness to support small teams working on breather projects that won’t necessarily generate the enormous profits of big triple-A franchises.
But, speaking of franchises, Child of Light is one, apparently: Plourde has confirmed we’ll be spending more time in Lumeria.
Fans of Child of Light: There are very cool projects in process set in the Child of Light universe. More News soon. Stay tuned! #excited 😀

Whether these projects are games or transmedia offerings we don’t know, unfortunately. I really enjoyed Child of Light and would be delighted to see more of it.
