This War of Mine: Stories - Father's Promise

Original This War of Mine, one of the most successful indie titles of the last decade, provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle - that of civilians. Father's Promise is a standalone story-driven tale set in the universe of the original game.

It tells a story of family's struggle to preserve the last pieces of humanity in times of despair and cruelty. Become Adam - a father trying to save his daughter from the horrors of war and escape the besieged city. Follow their steps and discover a story of love, hate and sacrifice - the emotions we all share in the darkest of days.

The Father's Promise features:
- A harrowing storyline based on an audio-drama by famous Polish author, Łukasz Orbitowski
- Emotionally difficult experience - decisions that are often morally ambiguous
- Crafting, cooking, taking care of people - anything that helps to survive
- Locations exclusively made for this standalone expansion
- Remastered and enhanced visuals from the original This War of Mine

Great game but...

I thought the whole point of making this a separate app instead of adding it as dlc to the original game was because you improved the graphics? But clearly the iOS version is still watered down as there are ZERO rain effects. Why?? Any device with the A8 chip should have no problem handling the better graphics, and of course, the newest devices are even more powerful! There’s really no excuse for not making this port almost identical to the PC version.

Also, where is the other dlc story? Please tell me you plan on adding the other stories on iOS for purchase through this app.

Not enough content

I love This War of Mine, but the “Stories” version is bs. It’s way too short and not fun to play multiple times. I’ve finished all the scenarios on the original games (as well as The Little Ones). Even after finishing the games, I still find it enjoyable to play. This new version is too linear. It only takes a few hours to finish the game. When you play it over again, it would be nice to be able to fast forward through some of the longer conversations. I still give this 3 stars because compared to most games, it’s still really good, just not good compared to the original. Hopefully they add more stories to this one. I feel ripped off spending $ for so little content.

Beautiful Story -More Games in the Future?

I know This War of Mine has other stories like The Last Broadcast. Will the others be available IOS soon? I hope so!

I particularly enjoyed A Father’s Promise because it felt so much easier than the base game lol. It has all the same things and mechanics I liked about This War of Mine. I had no issue with the length of this game. Yes, it’s short, but it’s still a heart-wrenching story about a father doing everything he can to get back to his little girl. People should definitely play this game.
