[Neowin] Ubisoft is giving away Child of Light on Uplay

Quote:
The RPG platformer Child of Light is completely free to claim on PC right now, with the publisher hosting the giveaway hoping to "play even a small part in bringing you some virtual comfort, escape, and togetherness right now."

The fantasy RPG released back in 2014 to critical acclaim. Here's a short rundown of the game's setting and gameplay:

Set in the fantastical, watercolored world of Lemuria, Child of Light stars Aurora, a princess on a quest to save her kingdom with the help of a mystical companion named Igniculus. Throughout her journey, Aurora will recruit a colorful cast of allies to join her in the fight, confront enemies in turn-based combat, upgrade her team's skills and gear to take on bigger challenges, and solve puzzles to progress through the world.

This game does not run on Windows 10, a free copy isn't very useful today.

I just tried it! It still doesn't work.

How to get it to work? I liked this game and wanted to replay it but cannot. I just get a full white screen and then it closes.

Whatever the issue, it's not Windows 10.

did you let it install all the pre-req executable n stuff? 3/4 of the installation is language/api/etc updates between C++, DirX,etc.

what version of win10 are you on? do you use shutup win10, & go beyond recommended settings?

sounds like you're missing drivers/updates.

check your "windows features" make sure all the directX stuff is on & up to date.

Add me on Steam, same name

I finally Figured it out! The game cannot handle more than 16 cores. After disabling hyper-threading it runs great on Win10 1909 (18363.778) with no need to do anything else, no compatibility modes or tweaking DirectX.

Great to be able to play it again.
