10 Great Short RPGs That You Could Start and Finish This Weekend

Child of Light

Child of Light is a brilliant little JRPG made by…… Ubisoft. That’s right. Despite coming from the huge Western publisher, Child of Light heavily uses many systems and ideas traditionally found in JRPGs, and it even sports a similar aesthetic style.

You play as a young girl named Aurora, a princess born to a Duke in 1895 Austria. On the day before Easter Aurora seemingly dies in her sleep, only to wake up in a mystical fantasy world called Lemuria.

You’ll explore the world of Lemuria in 2D sidescroller style, but battles take place in traditional turn-based RPG style, sporting a system similar to the Active Time Battle of Final Fantasy.

Child of Light uses Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework engine, the same as Rayman Legends, and it’s a stunningly gorgeous game to behold. Combat is instantly familiar to any fan of RPGs and there’s a charming and heartfelt story underneath. Clocking in at roughly 10-12 hours for a playthrough, Child of Light is the perfect way to spend a lazy weekend.
