Valiant Hearts developer diary will make you hope the dog lives

Oh my God, Ubisoft. You're making a WWI-themed adventure game where the whole focus is on how sad and harrowing war is...AND THERE'S A DOG TOO? Now we KNOW this one will be a tearjerker.

You can get a look at Valiant Hearts's adorable pooch, as well as a look at the gameplay, in the new developer diary:

Ubisoft's description of the video states the following:

): See how the talented team at Ubisoft Montpellier infused a variety of puzzle, adventure and action events into the story of Valiant Hearts. Each of the four unsung heroes must use his/her unique ability to escape or fight through their predicaments, and Walt, their trusty companion dog, must aid them along the way.

This is the story of crossed destinies and a broken love in a world torn apart. Four unsung heroes will try to survive the horror of the trenches along with their faithful canine companion.

In Valiant Hearts, the lives of these characters are inextricably drawn together over the course of the story. Friendship, love, sacrifice and tragedy befall each one as they help each other to retain their humanity against the horrors of war. Experience this story on June 25th, 2014 on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC platforms.

See that? The official description even starts with a frowny face! Things do not look good for this dog.
