Valiant Hearts is a puzzle adventure game telling the destiny of 4 unsung heroes during the great war.
Solve puzzles and sneak through enemy lines while doing your best to stay alive. Each of the 4 playable characters (including the lovelorn German soldier) work alongside the same faithful canine companion at different times, all trying to survive in the trenches while doing their best to hold onto their humanity in the face of loss and tragedy.
Emile was born in Saulcy-sur-Meurthe, Lorraine on March 12, 1867, to a family of miners. In 1894, he fell in love with Paulien in Rotterdam, a Dutch laundress and a strict Roman Catholic. The couple married in 1895 and settled into a quiet life dairy farming near Saint-Mihiel, France. Three years later, Paulien died giving birth to twins, only one of whom, their daughter Marie, survived. After a life resolutely dedicated to his work, God, and the rearing of his daughter, Emile was called-up on August 13, 1914, just a few days after the declaration of war. While fighting on the Western front, he became a prisoner of war after his first battle.
Walt, a Doberman Pincher, was raised in a German military kennel and trained to become a Dog Medic in the German Army. Along with the 30.000 other dogs who also served during World War 1, some used as watch dogs and others as letter carriers, Walt is loyal and always ready to serve. Separated from his German owner at the start of the war, he will end up playing a key role in the lives of our Valiant Hearts.
With our historical section you'll be able to discover various actual facts (battle, strategy, new weapons) but also objects from the 1900s to have a perception of what life was like back then.
