This War of Mine  



Survive a war-torn city as a civilian in This War of Mine


4:30 PM on 03.13.2014



Last we checked in with Anomaly maker 11 bit studios, The Witcher developers Maciej Szcześnik and Marek Ziemak had joined the company but weren't able to say what they were working on quite yet. One of the games in development at 11 bit is This War of Mine, a survival title for PC and mobile centered around civilians in a warzone. For once, you control them, not soldiers.

The announcement talks of crafting, trading, upgrading your shelter, and feeding your people during the day while snipers are on watch, and scavenging for food, weapons, and medicine at night once the coast is clear. A feel-good, empowering game this is not.

"Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them to endure the hardships. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better."

Anomaly trilogy to close with Anomaly Defenders

I loved the first two Anomaly games for how they turned traditional tower defense mechanics on their head to make something fun and different. I'm not so sure about the announcement of the series' final installment, rev...more
