Ubisoft’s impressive UbiArt Framework engine has already brought us one stellar title this year (Child of Light) and it looks set to form the basis of another highly affecting gaming experience with next month’s digital release Valiant Hearts: The Great War.

This new title from Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil studio Ubisoft Montpellier is a 2D puzzle adventure game set during World War I and inspired by letters written during the Great War. The game features a striking comic book art style and puts players in the shoes of four “unsung heroes [who] will try to survive the horror of the trenches along with their faithful canine companion”.

Here’s the debut developer dairy for Valiant Hearts discussing some of the artistic and historical inspirations behind the game’s dynamic visuals and emotionally affecting narrative:

Valiant Hearts: The Great War will be released on June 25th via digital channels across PS4, PS3, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Let us know if you’re looking forward to this intriguing new title from Ubisoft Montpellier in the comments.
