If you haven’t played This War of Mine yet, there’s rarely been a better chance to pick it up. Why? Because it’s on sale for a ridiculously low price right now. How ridiculously low? However ridiculous you feel that 86% off is. We think it’s pretty ridiculous.
This War of Mine is a game about trying to survive in the ruins of a wartorn city. You’re not playing soldiers, just normal people who are trapped in the middle of a conflict. Seems pretty fitting at the moment.
You’re scavenging for food and medical supplies, trying to keep away from the attention of armed bands and doing all you can to make it to the next day. It’s challenging in plenty of ways, and there’s an emotional heart to the experience that’s sometimes pretty raw.
There are harrowing choices to make and there’s a constant edge to the experience that’s going to leave you grinding your teeth down to nubs. It’s not exactly fun, but it’s definitely a game that you need to play.
