Child of Light
Announced in 2013, Ubisoft's Child of Light seemed to be a rare, for the time, example of a Western RPG inspired by Japanese classics. Its style was influenced by both Studio Ghibli movies and the work of Yoshitaka Amano; its mechanics - by games like Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy. Developed by an average-sized team at Ubisoft Montreal, it got a surprisingly solid release. Although, for some reason, the developers made neither a sequel nor any similar-styled project after. But, what was so special about the game and did it ever connect with its audience? Let us journey through its enchanted world - and see before us the answers unfold.
In celebration of Woman's Day 2022 (just a little late), I want to list the ten best and most well-known turn-based games with females in the main role.

Also, I'll focus only on those games where the hero is always female - not those where you can choose to play as one. This means no Pokémon, or anything like that, with character creation. Now, with all that out of the way, here are Ten Games with Female Characters to play today!
