This War of Mine Details, Screenshots and Video

We met with developer 11 bit Studios at PAX Prime 2014, where they shared details about This War of Mine for PC and mobile.

This War Of Mine is a game that provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle. For the very first time you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout. At night you get a chance to scavenge nearby locations for items that will help you stay alive. read more
