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.
  • Inspired by real-life events

  • 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

  1. A must to play
    by Elprez T., Turkey - Dec 1st 2018

    I have 25h gameplay on steam and bought this one as a gift for a friend. Shows the dirty side of war (which side isn't dirty actually!) and positions you at the victims' side. Absolutely must be experienced, it depends on you if on sale or not.

  2. It's alright.
    by SteveS, USA - Apr 17th 2018

    I've played better games but this one is okay for a $5 sale price. For the survival mechanics that are there, there's a decent amount of depth to the. Problem is, there's very few of those mechanics.

    It also has no tutorial whatsoever so prepare to go into it blindly.

  3. Great little game
    by Natasa S., Serbia - Feb 28th 2018

    Very surprised at how well this game is designed and developed. So immersive and on every play-through it is different. Amazing.
    All in all, love the play-style, and love all the messages this game is telling us.
