First Dev Diary For Valiant Hearts: The Great War Explains The Reason Behind The Art Style

By   /   May 24, 2014

The recently released first Dev Diary for Valiant Hearts: The Great War sheds some more light on the art design of the game. Looking at the game for the first time gives sort of a cartoony feel towards the art; Art Director Paul Tumelaire explains why that is.

Tumelaire was originally working on something else at the time, looking at his art the developers decided to hire his expertise.

Although his original concept art had a comic style to it, it had a certain ‘emotional edge’, and that is exactly what the people over at Ubisoft Montpellier were looking for.

The developers decided to go where no other game had gone before, tell an emotional and a difficult story in a totally different way, through the art style of Tumelaire.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War isn’t your typical puzzle game; it is set in the World War I era, a timeline which is rarely used in games, to create something different. Well, it seems they did manage to do that, telling the stories of several war heroes and their struggle during those days.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a puzzle adventure game being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and PC. The game is set to launch on June 25th 2014.
