Win a Child of Light Deluxe Edition

Ubisoft’s Child of Light is,  according to at least one devilishly handsome reviewer, a “marvel to look at and a joy to play.” If you’d don’t care to listen to reviewers, or maybe the review has you intrigued, we’re giving away one Deluxe Edition of the game on PC to a lucky reader.

Here’s what’s in the box:

  • The official Deluxe Box
  • Digital version of the game
  • The exclusive lightening Igniculus key ring
  • A 24 page artbook with unrevealed artworks
  • An exclusive A2 Poster designed by Yoshitaka Amano

Bonus Digital Content

  • The Golem Pack: free the golem during an additional quest and make him join your party as an additional character!
  • The Dark Aurora Customization Pack: an exclusive Dark Skin for Aurora and a pack of runes to improve your skills.

All you have to do to stand a chance of winning is tell us why you should win..but there’s a catch. You’re going to have to do it in rhyming couplets – much like all the exposition is delivered in the game.

Here’s an example:

Woe is me! No games to play; my life is dull and barren
On the bright side though, I shouldn’t moan – at least my name’s not Darryn

You get the idea. show us your poetic side, and you could end up floating about in the water-colour world of Lemuria. As the prize is a physical one, entries are restricted to the confines of South Africa’s borders. You’re allowed multiple entries, one entry per comment. Competition sloes next week Tuesday, 13 May 2014.

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Oh the gray! My world is dull and not so bright.
    It would be so much better, with Child of Light!

  • Hammersteyn

    Poetic side? Ummmmmm…. I know

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue

    I thought I farted….
    Now it’s running into my shoe.

  • Mossel

    I need this game, but cant rhyme for shit.
    I promise to enjoy it, like a kid does Pritt.

  • VampyreSquirrel

    It would seem that Lagz is getting creative.
    Maybe Random.org can take up the directive.

  • Admiral Chief in Space

    Oh please oh please pick me for the win!
    One more please, much to everyone’s chagrin!

    • Hammersteyn

      You already won, that’s enough son.
      It’s time to give someone else a run

      • Hammersteyn

        * I spelled you wrong precious

      • Admiral Chief in Space

        Nay good sire, thrice be the charm
        Off you go then, back to your barn!

        • Hammersteyn

          Enough is enough, surely you jest.
          Time for another to open the chest.

          • Admiral Chief in Space

            Let me make you, sir hammer, a very good deal
            I’ll provide you the game, you’d better not squeal!

          • Hammersteyn

            I already posses this game my good sir
            Give it to someone who’d appreciate the gesture.

  • Admiral Chief in Space

    I must play this game of child of light
    Behold Call of Doody, out of my sight!

  • KingKappie

    On one stormy day, you ask y I cant play
    O my good Sir, I have no PC grrrr.

  • Jedi JJ

    I have no idea what I’m doing, but I want to win something,
    This is really all I have to say, at least it’s better than nothing.

  • Admiral Chief in Space

    It’s good to see the PC folk getting some love
    Life can be lonely way from above

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Everyone hates the Master Race
      For always being in first place :(

      • Admiral Chief in Space

        Haters gonna hate
        I won’t debate

      • Hammersteyn

        You shunned one and all, living in your palace.
        Exclusives for the peasants, how empty is your chalice?

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          It’s not,
          It’s full of tears & snot

        • Admiral Chief in Space

          Our cup runneth over, can you not see?
          All is glorious, running on PC

          • Hammersteyn

            When it runs,it runs like a super charged mower.
            They should have handed the poor fellow a blower.

          • Admiral Chief in Space

            Good heavens man, that things got some torque!
            Perhaps it was modified by the Borg?

          • Jedi JJ

            That be the machine of a crazy inventor,
            My guess would be the Alien Emperor.

    • Jedi JJ

      Your poem speaks such truth, it makes people wince,
      At least it’s better than sharing the game with Rince.

      • Admiral Chief in Space

        We know a fellow by the name of Rince
        He adores pies with the content of mince

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          If Rince saw these rhymes he’d surely wince,
          Before sashaying away with a manly mince.

          • Jedi JJ

            Apparently Rince can be quite slick,
            I also hear his real name rhymes with dick,

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I like to believe his silence means he agrees,
            so we can continue these rhymes for as long as we please.

    • Anon A Mouse

      Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;
      This describes everything the master race are not

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    There once was a man from Nantucket
    Who said, “Give me the prize now, fuck it!”

    • VampyreSquirrel

      So much win!

      • Admiral Chief in Space

        …said the squirrel within?

        • Jedi JJ

          Or maybe his evil twin?

          • VampyreSquirrel

            This conversation should go in the bin!

          • Mossel

            That would be a sin!

          • Jedi JJ

            I can’t think of a decent sentence in which to use fin.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            This contest is causing quite a din.

          • Mossel

            Said JJ with a grin.

    • Mossel

      haha well done! I was contemplating using the Nantucket rhyme.

  • Admiral Chief in Space

    This deluxe set sure is pretty and funky
    Come to my backlog, its not that clunky!

  • VampyreSquirrel

    Oh my god Geoff, what have you done
    Now all of Lagz has gone to the pun

  • Unavengedavo

    I want this game as much as I want an orange… Wait, what rhymes with orange? O_o

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Gorringe says I,
      Who watches QI.

      • Unavengedavo

        To win this game I would gladly give an orang,
        I am so desperate I could rip off a door hinge

      • VampyreSquirrel

        It’s like what rhymes with Silver?
        I do say it must be Quicksilver!

  • Unavengedavo

    This game is so easy to play, I can make rhymes throughout the day

  • Ektso Gedinkja

    all of these people trying to win a game with some rhyme,
    poor old virgins, try getting laid with your time.

  • Ottokie

    At last there is Light, as my only world was playing Dust!
    Now all that’s left, is to pray to the RNG Gods of Light!

  • VampyreSquirrel

    That is pretty and I must have what I’m seeing
    Now shut-up and give me that key-ring!

  • derp

    Journey and Ico need a friend:
    It’s pastel colours will fulfil that end.

  • VampyreSquirrel

    I does need the Child of Light in my life,
    So I can play it, along side my wife!

  • derp

    Gaming can be a sordid thing:
    Child of light is no such thing.

  • Marius Nell

    Amazing title, a game I wish to play
    its not Diablo so more than a little while I shall stay.

    Collecting artbooks so I do
    Give me this prize or I shall throw you with poo.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      You should split those two rhymes
      so as to enter two times.

      • derp

        The ANC likes to throw poo.
        Maybe you should join them too

  • derp

    Games are fun- of course it’s true
    Child of light is beautiful too

  • Mossel

    Hickory dickory doc
    Apparently Child of Light doesn’t suck…

  • HvR – THE Average GAmer

    *waits for Slash to finish his epic guitar opening solo*

    She’s got a smile it seems to me
    Reminds me of childhood memories
    Where everything
    Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
    Now and then when I see her face
    She takes me away to that special place
    And if I’d stare too long
    I’d probably break down and cry

    Oh, oh, oh
    Sweet child o’ light

    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Sweet child of light

  • Anon A Mouse

    Roses are red, violets are blue;
    I don’t care to rhyme because I don’t own a PC to play this on.

    • Jedi JJ

      Too bad for you 😉

      • Anon A Mouse

        Me thinks it’s better for the community. My poetry is stuck in my varsity days. There will not be enough brain bleach if I’m rhyming.

    • HvR – THE Average GAmer

      Giving Anon A mouse a big LOL
      You can also play on PS console

  • VampyreSquirrel

    I am all out of rhymes
    This happens too many times

    • Admiral Chief in Space

      Is that what she said?
      While running away from your bed?

      • Jedi JJ

        Good grief,
        You’ve been served by Admiral Chief.

      • VampyreSquirrel

        What you say about my wife?
        You’re playing with your life!

        hehe

        • HvR – THE Average GAmer

          Why are the comments these days so rife
          With mentions of the Admiral’s wife

          • VampyreSquirrel

            It wasn’t the Admiral’s wife being referred to
            I guess that’s a change, but it still won’t do

          • Unavengedavo

            The Admiral has a wife? This news is paramount, it’s just too bad his hand doesn’t count.

          • HvR – THE Average GAmer

            So he says and he wears a wedding band
            But won’t it be funny if wife is his right hand

          • Unavengedavo

            That is so cute he must be bereft, but I have a suspicion his mistress is his left

          • HvR – THE Average GAmer

            I’m afraid we’ve made him cry
            So he is probably giving both hands a try

          • Admiral Chief in Space

            Be silent you silly man
            Just now you receive the BAN

          • HvR – THE Average GAmer

            So sad to see man who gets no loving
            Venting his frustrations through banhammering

          • Admiral Chief in Space

            Where is this man that is bereft of love?
            Let us console him with a freshly served dove

  • derp

    Spielberg: games are not art
    He should play this- the silly old fart

  • HvR – THE Average GAmer

    There once was boy who was called Geoff
    Who tried to be a chef
    After he failed to get it right
    He decided to give me Child of Light

    • Jedi JJ

      *bounces up and down like a street rapper in the background*

  • derp

    Playing is nice, winning is too
    Giving me Child of light would be a great thing to do.

  • HvR – THE Average GAmer

    I hope to win the prize
    But won’t it be a demise
    If I open the package late at night
    And it contained an orphan with surname Light

  • derp

    They say Rhyming is contagious, Child of light seems to relay this.
    The bad rhymes below: are mellow and slow.
    That’s why this poet here deserves this.

    • HvR – THE Average GAmer

      Won’t derp feel like a pop
      When he finds his comment at the bottom and not on top

      • Jedi JJ

        This comment made me lol
        Looks like you’re on a roll.

      • derp

        Won’t HvR feel like a pop
        When his is nowhere to be seen, and mine is on top.

      • derp

        Gloating is a nasty thing:
        But having my comment on top has a pretty ring

        • derp

          South Africa’s Internet is shit:
          That double post wouldn’t have been a hit.

        • HvR – THE Average GAmer

          A but derp isn’t this considered cheating
          Editing your comment after an HVR rhyme beating

  • Unavengedavo

    I am amused that you think you’ll win the swag
    I already have this competition in the bag

  • Unavengedavo

    I should win this game , I might sound needy.
    If I lose it will be a shame, I’ll just bombard you with Darryn in a mankiki

    • Dutch Matrix

      Please come forth and admit
      That you fap to Darryn you twit
      Your obsession is clear
      When Brenda is near
      In his mankiki
      You love it kinky…

      • Unavengedavo

        My obsession is clear and this is all true,
        But what would you expect from a mentor like you?

  • Unavengedavo

    There is something you all need to know,
    If you lose to me just let it go.

  • HvR – THE Average GAmer

    Ag just go ahead and give me the game
    To me the guy with the very cool name
    Since doing all this rhyming is getting me tired
    And if I keep doing this any longer I’ll probably get fired

  • derp

    Poetry: considered by some as a waste of time:
    However Child of light is worth moving below the poverty line.

  • derp

    This is called a recursive poem: call it and it comes again:
    Child of light will end this though: I will sing of this again.

  • Unavengedavo

    I dig, you dig, we dig, he digs, she digs, they dig

    Not a beautiful poem, but it’s deep

  • HvR – THE Average GAmer

    Here is poem for a site LG
    Who fills our life with so much glee

    There is Gavin the big bad boss
    Fighting in the courts to show MSSA they are toss

    Then comes Geoff second in command
    Giving us content when we demand

    Do not forget Zoe the sweet flower
    Showing gaming has some female power

    Lastly poor old Darryn
    Allowing us to make fun of his love life so barren

    Now I’ve immortalize in lyrics so tight
    Yopu gotta send my prize of Child of Light

    • Unavengedavo

      Your lyrics are tight and off the hook,
      But you kinda forgot about Stephen Snook.

      • HvR – THE Average GAmer

        I tried to find something for Stephen the Snook
        But alas there is nothing in my rhyming book
        Be honest this is a task quite steep
        To say something nice about a guy who likes dating a sheep

  • derp

    Activision’s rubbish makes me weep:
    Ah! but now comes Child of light that beats it in one clean sweep.

  • Viking Of Science

    For Child of Light, It can be said; It’s a beautiful game
    It’ll tide me over until Witcher 3, which was delayed, and that’s lame.

  • Joseph Maynard Acallar

    I was happy when I knew, this game that is so new.
    Sadly I didn’t have the money, to buy this little pretty.

    • derp

      Your rhymes do not rhyme: that is no bad thing.
      But this competition requires you to sing

    • Joseph Maynard Acallar

      But come this little contest, my poetry skills I need to prove best.
      Now I see my chance, to play this game at least once.

      • Joseph Maynard Acallar

        I hope I win this little duel, and hope that the fates won’t be cruel.
        My little heart will be broken, If I find out I won’t be winnin’

  • derp

    My work day is ruined: by my work which is bland:
    All will be solved with Child of Light in my hand.

  • HvR – THE Average GAmer

    I truly hope than they choose the best
    Those of use who thought of rhymes without rest
    Since this is the only way I can bare
    The dice random.org rolls that never seems fair

  • Nicole

    I will save Lemuria from the evil Dark Queen, but I cant do that if you don’t let me ‘ween’ 😀

  • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX Umar Returns

    From a deep slumber I shall never wake
    Like Aurora’s, this world is fake
    Though asleep I may be
    A scumbag you will never see
    For I have journeyed to lemuria and back
    This game is not something I lack
    So I do not wish to own this game twice
    May another have this game without a price
    Goodluck to all my peeps
    May you soon join me in my eternal sleep

  • Nicole

    An adventure, I hear! Well I’m up for the cheer! To win this game would be great, it looks like so much fun I cant wait!

  • HvR – THE Average GAmer

    They call me Hiphopopotomis
    My rhymes they are bottomless
    .
    .

    • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX Umar Returns

      There ain’t no party
      Like my nana’s tea party

      • HvR – THE Average GAmer

        When you rap like you don’t get paid
        When you roll like me you won’t get laid

  • Nicole

    This game looks so pretty it makes my eyes bleed, I must have it! its not just a game, its a need!

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

    This game I want! It seems quite fun. I know this sounds scary!
    But I want to win this like Erwin won Katy Perry!

  • Nicole

    Winning this game will light up my life, for my heart will erupt, filled with happiness like a volcano on Tenerife.

  • Brian Murphy

    Pfft, I didn’t want to enter anyway!

  • Kensei Seraph, Sparkly Samurai

    I really suck at rhyming so dam
    However I will since I’m the man
    I’m stumped as to what to say next, Sam.

  • Kensei Seraph, Sparkly Samurai

    I have almost no chances to win this
    but I’ll still have my hopes pinned on this

  • Kensei Seraph, Sparkly Samurai

    Wow there’s some truly amazing rhyme
    If I win this it will almost be a crime

  • Nicole

    A new game on my shelf, what a pretty sight, I sure hope that game will be Child of Light

  • Kensei Seraph, Sparkly Samurai

    I will be buying this with my next paycheck
    but if there’s no stock then I’ll be melancholic
    so let me win to protect my wallet

  • Nicole

    I want this game with all of my heart, It would be an honour to play this piece of art!

  • Kensei Seraph, Sparkly Samurai

    I believe I am the best,
    for I will never rest.
    You will be mine Child of Light,
    I will try with all my might.

  • Kensei Seraph, Sparkly Samurai

    Child of Light, you look so cool.
    No, I don’t mean to be a fool,
    I wish to win you,
    I would even give up my favourite brew.

    • HvR – THE Average GAmer

      What is I see that sparkle in the midnight
      Well it is our samurai friend of the move Twilight
      Keep at it you improve with each try
      But you forgot to open with your new battle cry

  • Ilden Webber

    I walk past my PC.
    What’s this I see?
    A competition, just for me.

    I should enter in rhyme,
    but who has the time?
    Oh well, let’s hope this game’s mine!

  • MakeItLegal

    some days i dream
    some days i am a queen
    Most days i live between the light
    if you ever find me
    i am that child of light

  • Unavengedavo

    I see you all busting a rhyme
    But I’ll say it again, this game is mine

  • nortee

    Oh come to me, come to me, sweet Child of Light.
    With your incredible graphics so pure
    that it shows TrueBlack(tm) for scenes at night,
    as well as with that in-depth and glorious lore
    that will pull you in with little to no fight.
    What with crisp images made by my Devil13 hardware
    that will make them console boys full of spite.
    Not to mention my 16gb of ram made by Corsair.
    Oh to load up that game on ultra graphics mode rendered,
    I shall play you and play you like nights never ended.
    Oh come to me, come to me, sweet Child of Light,
    because I deserve it y’all, and you all that know I’m right!

    i couldn’t sign in with disqus for some arb reason (probably forgot my password. (nortee)

    • nortee

      woohooo!!!!! looks like i finally logged in 😀
      *waves like a madman*

  • Raven

    Child of light, I’m told, is quite a delight,
    To both young and old!

    So give me the game, if I may be so bold,
    as I have no plans next Tuesday night!

  • Aequitas

    This is mean, to make me rhyme is horrible and tragic.
    But you’ll be sad when I use words like charcoal bin and crab chic!

  • Nine

    I’ve never come upon a win, never been on the list
    So much so that I’m starting to wonder if I exist
    Does Random.org randomly select or systematically ignore?
    It barely makes sense like an old Shakespearean metaphor .

  • Nine

    Me not winning on Lazygamer could’nt get any lamer
    I’m starting to wonder if Random.org is as racist as the guy who used to play Kramer.

  • Nine

    Most of these ‘poets’ need a rhyming dictionary
    When it comes to designing fine sublime rhymes, nine is a visionary
    Whoop ass is my religion and when I journey into games I teach my doctrine to foreigners like a missionary.
    But if I ever win, it will be a miracle like tje Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary

  • Nine

    Poets cant match this bard
    Like Strong Belwas’ belly; I leave them scarred
    When it comes to gaming and competition; I go full retard
    It’s time to stop cause everybody sees that I’m trying too hard.

  • elNielio

    Child of Light
    I should have the right
    To play
    And not pay

  • Mark Slabberts

    I am bored and dull
    but if I win It will fell rather swell

  • Nicole

    I really want this game, not winning would be so lame, Its so pretty and bright, I need Child of Light

  • ProphetFool

    Just played all the way through.
    Now what’s a boy to do?

    Everything so full of whimsy…
    But downloaded version so flimsy.

    I searched the internet for hours.
    Using all my tech powers.

    But alas, the deluxe is Euro only…
    To me this is pretty phony.

    Time to pack up and move I guess.
    How else to sort this mess…

    Oh wait I can win one here?!?!
    Please say yes, I will hold it dear.

    It would save me a bundle in travel…
    Please forgive me now, I babel…….

  • Ch33seWh33L

    With the talent shown here being so tight.
    Chances are slim I’ll take this light.

  • Righy.D

    I’ve been eyeing this one for a while,
    although my workload is quite vile.
    I hope to add it to the pile to play with a holiday smile.

  • derp

    Child of light- the reason I should win is majestic:
    ’cause my wallet right now is anorexic.

  • Lupus

    Forsooth I’ve got a lot of games to play, but on the flip side I want more is all I can say.

  • Nicole

    I want this game so so bad, I fear all this suspense might drive me mad, winning Child of light would be victorious I will concur this quest and the outcome will be glorious!

  • Nicole

    I struggle to sleep at night, I too badly want to win Child of Light!

  • Nicole

    A competition I see, a competition just for me, so I’ll quickly bust a rhyme to assure this game is all mine.

  • Nicole

    1 game, 1 winner, who will it be….Oh my! I hope it is me!

  • Nicole

    I’m up for this quest, this adventure ahead, I will not give up, no not till I’m dead!

  • Nicole

    A new game to win, I shall enter with a grin
    For all I need is a rhyming lead and so you see I’ve done the deed!

  • Nicole

    This competition has become greatly addictive, I really need this game so wonderful and fictive!

  • Nicole

    Playing this game will blow my mind, please let me win if you’d be so kind, can’t afford to buy a game in these hard times instead I’m here busting out rhymes!

  • Nicole

    I am determined for this game, not winning would be super lame, so please give Child of Light to me, so I can play it and die happy! :)

  • Nicole

    My brain is working overtime, I’ve even started dreaming in rhyme, so let me win oh please, oh please, so I can finally sleep at ease.

  • Nicole

    A pretty game to play at night, soft water colour art for a sweet sight, with characters so unique, Child of Light is exactly what I seek!

  • Nicole

    This game looks like loads of fun I really want to play ,but for that I need to bust some rhymes and wait for the 15th of May

  • Nicole

    I’m a student, so as you may know, games is a luxury and my cash flow is low.

  • Nicole

    I won’t stop till the 13th of May, this is quite the challenge that I must say, but I’ll tell you my motivation, and that is to eventually play this beautiful creation

    Tomorrow is my birthday and Mother’s Day as well. Winning this game would sure be swell.

  • Nicole

    It would be just great, if I win, starting Tuesday with a grin!

  • Nicole

    A challenge!, a quest!, a journey ahead, but if I don’t win, tears will be shed

  • Nicole

    An interesting tale about finding lost light, please let me win, I’m up for the fight!

    Pretty graphics are something, I know
    Game-play requires people to grow
    But when a game combines, the above: Intertwined
    Something great: like Child of Light will be ornate.

    Alas, the contest is nearly over
    At now I am currently sober
    The above will diminish, if on top I do finish
    and my productivity will be notably slower.

  • Nicole

    Tomorrow is the day, finally, it felt years away
    I just REALLY want this game, this wait was driving me insane.

  • Nicole

    I feel positive about tomorrow, because without this game I feel hollow

  • Nicole

    So I’m just about out of rhyme, I guess this will be my last time, so now all I can do is wait, I’ll leave the outcome up to fate

  • derp

    The day is going slow:
    Geoff- oh great one, when will we know?
