World War I Game Is… Pretty

World War I Game Is… Pretty

It used to be that we’d get loads of war games based on World War II. Despite being an ugly conflict full of large-scale action and human drama, World War I never got as much consideration from video game creators. Valiant Hearts is going there, and it’s going to look damned pretty in doing so.

We usually don’t run developer diaries much here on Kotaku but there’s so much charm in Valiant Hearts‘ art style and animation that this promo clip feels worth sharing. There’s also something appealing about the fact that the developers on the team are using the creative process to reckon with something that affected their own families and national consciousness. Hopefully, all of this potential pays off when Valiant Hearts comes out on June 25.

    You most certainly do not, that would get in the way of rehashed reddit threads, Patricia’s tumblr and Plunkett’s brain farts.

  • It’s the same studio that made “Child of Light” ? The artwork style of both games seems connected.

    • to be fair, if you look at the dates on those articles, every year after 2008 there hasnt been many.. 2008 though was frickin filled with them.
