Aardman Animation may be known for their Claymation creations, but to mark the one-hundred year anniversary of the end to the First World War, the studio have ventured into games. In conjunction with DigixArt and presented by Bandai Namco, the first story trailer for 11-11: Memories Retold has launched.
Released on the 9th of November, the game aims to bring to life both sides of the War through two central characters. Kurt, a German Soldier looking for his son who is missing in action. As well as Harry, a Canadian photographer who soon realises the harsh realities of life inside the trenches. The two characters are voiced by Sebastian Koch and Elijah Wood respectively. The plot revolves around the two playable leading characters and how they their lives and those around them are effected by their encounter.
The trailer looks to have more of an emotional narrative feel than your run of the mill game release. If those hearing Aardman’s name were expecting funny creatures, they will be disappointed. The CGI visuals of the trailer and game reflect those of a textured painting. Gamers will feels as if their characters are ripped straight from a canvas.
The game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 9th. What do you think of the trailer?
