Child of Light's creators discuss the birth of Aurora and her fairytale journey

The third making-of segment for Ubisoft's Japanese role-playing game inspired Child of Light gives viewers a look at the heart of the title — the driving forces behind Aurora's story.

In Child of Light, players will guide the pink-haired child Aurora on a quest to restore the world's light and defeat the evil Queen of the Night. Together with a ragtag band of heroes hailing from deepest corners of Lemuria — the strange world Aurora travels — and her firefly companion Igniculus, Aurora must save the day.

This final video introduces the storytellers behind the game — writer Jeffrey Yohalem and creative director Patrick Plourde — as well as actress Caroline Dhavernas (Hannibal), who narrates Aurora's journey. Watch above for a look at the fairytales and themes that inspired Aurora's magical coming-of-age journey.

Child of Light will available on April 30 as a downloadable title for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Check out Ubisoft's previous vignettes for the title, which include a look at the game's soundtrack and movement as well as a visual tour of Lemuria.
