In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to Child of Light in the following lists:
Video games are known for high-octane, adrenaline-fuelled entertainment, but there are many that address the player’s emotions as much as their dexterity. Often overlooked by younger or more competitive players, these experiences can provide a helpful variety in the diet of games your family enjoys.
The games selected below create emotionally rich spaces in which to explore scenarios with feelings rather than facts. In some games this is achieved with beautiful or soothing interactive visuals; others create charged relationships and settings that invite players to take a role in processing these emotions.
Sometimes you play a video game and it reminds you of the intense connection and emotion of favourite novels. Sometimes you read a book and wish you could wander off and explore the world it created. This is a list of the perfect video game and book pairings.
We're not interested in books that were based on video games or video games that were based on a book. No, we want the deep cuts where a video game has stumbled into the same narrative world as that novel you tell everyone about. Or, maybe, a book that always reminds you of a video game you've played.
While researching the list I even found some articles written on this exact topic. Like this blog "The unexpected joy of pairing books with video games"
