Valiant Hearts: Coming Home
Now available as a Netflix exclusive with no ads or microtransactions, this emotional narrative adventure invites players into the grim world of war during WWI.

The game features a distinct visual style akin to a graphic novel, with plenty of tidbits and authentic photos for history buffs to learn about as they progress through the game.
Part visual novel and part match-3 puzzler, this charming pixel-art title combines elements of both genres to present players a wholesome experience about what it means to be a farmer wielding the magic of Mother Gaia. Players can engage in co-op play as well as with an AI companion, as they progress through the story and learn more about the whimsical characters around them.
The game also features a special quest system for this mobile version where they can score rewards for collecting coins or stars. These can be used to purchase dyes, sparkles and outfits to spice up the gameplay.
Gruesome, gory, and absolutely gorgeous, this visually stunning game boasts a world plunged in darkness as players fight through impossible levels to survive.
