Where some video of gameplay?!
VERRRRY Chrono-trigger like game as far as the combat system goes. Getting some SquareSoft feels from the game.

Nice that they have a PC release too, I guess that's one of the great things about Kickstarter projects, they often have multiplatforms from the start. Good to see a western release date, not that far either. Will definitely buy, people who played the japanese one have said pretty decent things about the game. It's no chrono trigger obviously, but should still be good.
I don't think this is from Kickstarter. Its from a team known as Tokyo RPG Factory, and they are part of Square-Enix.
No Vita (in the West)
Team is about 13 people.
~$39.99 price point
20-25 hours long
Hmm thought it was from kickstarter but yeah quick google shows nothing, must have been another game then. Good that it's coming to PC right away in this case, that's pretty rare usually.
I cancelled my I Am Setsuna preorder after seeing a few mediocre reviews. Will pick it up once it goes on sale. Ended up picking up Grand Kingdom instead since I know I like that from playing the demo.
OpenCritic - The top critics in gaming. All in one place.
I think the negative reviews are being a bit harsh, probably because of having extremely unrealistic expectations going into it. That said, the 9/10's seem a bit silly as well.
Yeah the reviews are a bit mixed, but mostly positive. It's not a groundbreaking RPG, but looks fairly alright. And unlike most "fairly alright" JRPGs releasing, it's not too cutesy/anime.
fuck it im going home for lunch to get this bitch downloaded. I'm excited regardless of the reviews!
Yeah I'll still play it. Just not willing to drop $40 at the moment.
I only played like an hour or so since i wanted to grind OW and shit, this game is definitely a vita game on a PC/PS4 lol i can see why people complained but it's still pretty good/charming.
Very early opinion though so take it for what it is
Child of Light was developed by a small team and published by Ubi. Setsuna is a full SE title I think (not sure) and developed for all 3 platforms (PS4, PC, Vita) simultaneously, which honestly is nice. There's plenty of PS4/Vita games I'd love to have on the PC. I'll pick up this one for sure once I finish my current rotation of games I'm playing through.
And the Vita is so dead over here that SE won't even invest the trivial amount of additional money it would have cost to release a digital only title that is already localized on other platforms. Any sales numbers you see for the Vita version are JP only.
Sure but it was still DEVELOPED for the Vita, regardless of how many places it was actually localized for. Add to that that Square is pretty consistent in charging a little more than people expect for ports/smaller releases but having lots of sales, compared to Ubi's smaller published games that tend to economically mirror real indie's, and there's some reasons for the price differences. It's all about what it's worth to you though - If it's a full-blown JRPG of quality, then I don't have an issue paying $30-40 for it. The quality is getting mixed feedback right now so that's a shame though. For what it cost, Child of Light was really really good. If it had been $40 maybe it wouldn't have felt worth it but even then I don't think I would have regretted it.
Overall it was an okay game. Story has been done before, but still had its charm/moments. Biggest negatives are lack of any kind of world map (seriously, wth) and the decisions you make don't really appear to have any factor on anything. If you answer being a dick, the team just looks at you sternly and you proceed the same if you answered nicely.
Liked the snowy atmosphere, could have done with some alternative scenery even if it was late game/out in the middle of islands.
Lots of throwbacks to CT skills, smiled a lot when I got frog squash.
The drop system was a bit of fresh air from what I've played in other rpg's, how you kill something determining what may drop.
All in all, worth the money and hope it makes enough to make an improved upon sequel.
