Second behind-the-scenes Child of Light video explores music and sound design

Posted on April 9, 2014 AT 11:52am

In the second behind-the-scenes video of Ubisoft’s upcoming JRPG-inspired Child of Light, composer Cœur de Pirate, audio designer Huge Bastien, and other devs discuss the game’s music and sounds.

“Cœur de Pirate brings that sense of intimacy,” creative director Patrick Plourde says in the video. “There’s also a sense of youthfulness in the way she plays the piano.”

Also revealed in the videogame is the influence, collaboration, or presence of Cirque du Soleil in some capacity—from best I can tell, inspiration for the world and costume design. Either way, creative consultant Bastien Alexandre was tapped to help out on that front.

The first behind-the-scenes video, released last month, explores the game’s watercolor aesthetic.

Child of Light launches on Windows PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One April 30.
