Bandai Namco today announced that it would be publishing a new game set in World War I, called 11-11: Memories Retold. The narrative adventure is being developed by Aardman Animation Studios and DigixArt, and it features a striking visual design, as you can see in the game's first trailer.

The somber subject matter may seem at odds with Aardman Studio's most well-known productions, which include the whimsical Wallace and Gromit, but the studio doesn't see it that way. “Engaging audiences with compelling stories through animation is at the heart of what we are trying to do at Aardman," says founder Dave Sproxton. "With this project we want to produce an emotionally rich experience with distinctive visual character to help you understand what war is all about.” 

The game is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
