In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.
The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.
Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.
This War of Mine: Anniversary Edition
It's been two years since This War of Mine global release and we're still expanding the experience. This new free DLC, created especially for the Anniversary Edition, adds new characters, new locations to explore, and most importantly - a whole new ending, leading to a different outcome to the game. The dilemma though remains the same – how far will you go, to protect the ones you care about?
• Inspired by real-life events
• Control your survivors and manage your shelter
• Craft weapons, alcohol, beds or stoves – anything that helps you survive
• Make decisions - an often unforgiving and emotionally difficult experience
• Randomized world and characters every time you start a new game
• Charcoal-stylized aesthetics to complement the game's theme
This War of Mine experience is now broadened with "The Little Ones" expansion. "The Little Ones" explores the hardships of wartime survival as seen from an entirely new perspective―that of a child. This DLC puts you in charge of a group of adults and children stuck in a besieged city, struggling with basic necessities. TWoM: The Little Ones focuses not only on the reality of enduring war, but also on how even in times of conflict, kids are still kids: they laugh, cry, play, and see the world differently. In addition to thinking about survival, you'll have to summon your inner child to understand how to protect the little ones. Their youth, and their future, are in your hands.
• Experience the biggest expansion to This War of Mine
• Protect innocent children
• Craft toys, play with kids, and be the caretaker they need
• Meet new adult civilians in scenarios with children

Ratings and Reviews
A searing depiction of life in a combat zone, This War of Mine challenges you to keep a group of civilians alive until a ceasefire is declared. Figuring out who sleeps, who eats, and who leaves your shelter each night to scavenge for supplies involves lots of tough decisions, but that’s just the beginning. While rummaging through hauntingly detailed ruins, you’ll meet equally desperate survivors and wrestle with your own conscience as you choose to help, trade, or steal.
Love this game but
I played this game on console and picked it up on iPhone 8 just to see how the touch controls would go. And it’s great. Fits this game like a glove. I’ve played through almost every scenario and picked up the DLC to add the Little Ones’ challenge to things.
My issue is actually with the most recent This War of Mine update. I’ve had little crashes and things from time to time before (no big deal as I still love the game), but since the update about a week ago, the glitches are frequent. When I tap a character, it doesn’t center on them but rather slightly above so they’re usually hidden by the character panel. The sound effects are muted too. No more clock ticking timer when the day/night is ending or sounds when characters are attacking/digging/building/eating. Haven’t tried to see if the sniper fire sound is gone too. This occurs even when I start a new TWoM scenario, random or otherwise. I’ve also had characters get stuck after coming home at night, just standing by the door in silence for half the day before they remember the last action I gave them (GO TO BED).
I really like the game and keep coming back to it. Y’all made something really special with TWoM that scratches all the right itches and makes each victory satisfying. Loved Moonlighter too. Can’t wait to see what y’all come out with next.
This is the first game that gave me uncontrollable happiness and in the next five minute crippling depression. This is by far my favorite game but of course there are a few dislikable features. Every now and then one of my survivors will decide that they would rather teleport just to eat a chicken leg from the fridge, and every-time I give one of my depressed survivors a pep talk while they are sleeping they slowwwwwly get out of bed then INSTANTLY fly back into the bed in a way I can only describe as supernatural! Although I understand it adds a sense of helplessness I was really hoping you could add a somewhat limited speech while scavenging especially when at the elderly couple’s house when the man is asking you all those questions and you just stand there staring at him. I know it would be hard but I was wondering if you could use more diverse perspectives like maybe a soldier, rebel, or even a doctor working in the hospital. I would recommend adding companions like dogs for increasing happiness and for scavenging. And last be most certainly not least the constant language is quite disturbing . I don’t know why you think people cussing non-stop is enjoyable along with the sprayed F word occasionally placed on walls and in the menu. Especially for me it does not add anything so I suggest you just take out all bad words. Thanks!
