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

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.
