Can an emotional story be told with the style of game that Valiant Hearts is aiming to be?
The narration of the trailer alone peaked my interest in what this game was and how it will progress.
The trailer was beautiful and the story sounds heartfelt as well, but I question how deep the game can be with such a bright art style in a side-scroller. There are some side-scrollers that are able to pull off the serious feel, but they are typically very particular with their art style to help invoke the mood.
While the trailer for Valiant Hearts excites me, the older examples of gameplay, and the art style make me question if this game will just be lost in its identity.
