In case you weren’t aware, Ubisoft have released Dogs of War, an interactive comic book inspired by the Valiant Hearts universe, and it’s now free for all iOS owners.
This interactive comic book tells the backstory of Walt, the faithful and beloved canine companion from Valiant Hearts. As the main character of the book, Walt will share his adventures alongside his sister, Cassie. The loveable pair grew up together until one day the events of The Great War sent them down vastly different paths. In this tale of heroism, both dogs are thrown into the maze of trenches across the Western Front, and will have to navigate their own way towards survival amidst the horror of the war. Walt and Cassie won’t share a common fate: while one will become a messenger, the other will become a medic who rescues fallen soldiers. Thanks to intuitive touch navigation, an animated comic style, music and sound effects, the interactive comic book is brought to life and improves the entire reading experience.
I loved Valiant Hearts, so much so that I was inspired to write this piece on why it may very well end up as my game of the year. Colm also loved it, as you can see in his review.
