11 bit studios has announced This War of Mine, a dark survival that offers a new angle of war. Instead of a soldier, player control a group of civilians who struggle for their lives in a besieged city. Snipers prevent them from getting out of their refuge during the day, letting the player time to craft (weapons, alcohol, beds, stoves), trade, cure and upgrade. Therefore scavenging for food, medicines, weapons and other stuff must be done at night. The title is being developped for PC, Mac, Linux and mobile and will be out later this year.



11 bit studios announces This War of Mine

After months of hard work, everyone at 11 bit studios is proud to present our upcoming game, This War of Mine. As we develop the game, we’ve been driven by a specific tagline: “In war, not everyone is a soldier.”

In This War of Mine, the focus is shifted away from military operations portrayed in most games. Instead, it is a dark survival game where players control a group of civilians trying to stay alive in a besieged city. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, offering players time to craft, trade, upgrade their shelter, feed and cure their people. At night they must scavenge nearby areas in search for food, medicines, weapons and other useful items.

This War of Mine was inspired by real-life events and delivers a message. “This can happen in your city, in your country,” Michal Drozdowski, lead designer, said. “While designing a new game, we came across an article that described how one man survived in a besieged city. We learned about his hardships and the horror of that experience. We decided to work around this idea and make something real, something that moves people and make them think for a second. It's about time that games, just like any other art form, start talking about important things.”

In TWoM players have to make life-and-death decisions based on their conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them in order to prevail; there are no good or bad decisions during war. There's only survival.

This War of Mine is being developed for PC and mobile devices, and will be shown to media for the first time at the Game Developers Conference next week.

Choices in a survival context, reminds me of Gods Will Be Watching. Any idea on the perspective (2D, 3rd person, top down)?

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (2 Days ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (3 Days ago)
