This War Of Mine Puts Players On The Other Side Of The Conflict
Every war game casts you as a soldier or at the very least, an active participant in the conflict. That isn't the case with This War of Mine, 11 bit studios' upcoming PC and mobile game. Instead of playing a gun-toting warrior, you must guide out-gunned civilians through a war-torn city. With snipers forcing the group indoors during the day, you'll take this opportunity to craft items and gather supplies to prepare for the evening.
"This can happen in your city, in your country," Michal Drozdowski, lead designer, said. "While designing a new game, we came across an article that described how one man survived in a besieged city. We learned about his hardships and the horror of that experience. We decided to work around this idea and make something real, something that moves people and make them think for a second. It's about time that games, just like any other art form, start talking about important things."
Unfortunately, the trailer does not contain in-game footage, but the intriguing premise makes This War of Mine one to watch out for. We'll have more on this promising title in the months ahead.
