When The Perfect Video Game Just Sneaks Up On You

When The Perfect Video Game Just Sneaks Up On You

Kirk got to see it briefly last year, but between then and now, I'd forgotten all about Valiant Hearts. I am an idiot.

This is exactly the kind of game my inner self wishes someone could actually make, and here they are, actually making it. A handful of Ubisoft developers working not on Assassin's Creed or Far Cry, but this, a tiny adventure game set in the First World War and featuring some of the best art I have ever seen in a 2D video game.

And yeah, you read that right. It's an adventure game. One that puts you in control of seven characters, each letting you examine a conflict that, despite its historical significance, video games seem content to largely ignore.

Valiant Hearts is out on June 24 for XBLA (360 & XB1), PSN (PS3 & PS4) and PC.

    Wow. That looks amazingly exceptional. I'll definitely be picking that up day one on the ps4. Loving how original it looks. The trailer alone almost stirred up tears (almost), hate to think of what the game will do.

    Incredible. Can't wait. I don't want the dog to die though D:

    Wow this looks nice, hopefully the release it with a deluxe edition like Child of Light.

    Good to see this has a release date now, when this was announced with Child Of Light, this looked far more interesting to me.

    Reminds me a lot of Don't Starve (how it looks, not game play).
