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

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.
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!
Top notch IOS Game
I’ve been on a IOS game hunt lately, buying anything that remotely interests me, and I came across this. Never heard of it, but thought it looked interesting for a quick play. Price almost threw me off but I figured for that much it has to be a good game. I was not disappointed in the least. It took me away from every other game I was absorbed in, Monster Hunter, Final Fantasy Tactics, Morphite, all of those games got quickly thrown to the back burner and I got sucked into this. It’s really good, intense at times, you actually feel like your actions make a difference, and if you don’t plan ahead, it could cost you. It makes the experience really immersive which is hard to find in an IOS game. I have very few issues now and again, but nothing that made me hate the game in the slightest. A few crashes here and there, but that’s it. I see a lot of reviews where people complain about certain things and giving it low stars, don’t read too deeply into those. Most of he complaints come from them not understand some of the game mechanics, and expect their hand to be held. This game won’t do that, you have to teach yourself how to survive, just like you would in real life. You adapt and overcome. If your even slightly thinking of trying this game out, go for it, it’s worth every penny. Enjoy
