You may have heard of this awesome game called, “This War of Mine” developed by 11 bit Studios. The expansion pack, aptly named, “The Little Ones” is now available for purchase on Games Republic. WHAT’S MORE, if you buy the game, you donate 1$ to War Child UK that helps children affected by war.
This War of Mine
This War of Mine showcases a very different perspective of war. From the point of view of you and me. If we’re not soldiers, not rebels, nor politicians but mere civilians how would our lives be impacted? If you were forced to choose between clean water and food, what choice would you make?
When we look on the news, we see a metric ton of propaganda against ISIS, the tension between Russia and the West, and China’s assertion over the South China Sea…what the hell does that have to do with us? The media creates a very distinct emotional divide. “This War of Mine” closes this gap by making a surprisingly difficult leap of logic- that random civilians on the streets of Syria don’t give af about the politics and are just struggling to survive.
The Expansion: The Little Ones
This War of Mine: The Little Ones explores the hardships of wartime survival as seen from an entirely new perspective―that of a child. This DLC puts you in charge of a group of adults and children stuck in a besieged city, struggling with basic necessities. The Little Ones focuses not only on the reality of enduring war, but also on how even in
times of conflict, kids are still kids: they laugh, cry, play, and see the world differently. In addition to thinking about survival, you’ll have to summon your inner child to understand how to protect the little ones. Their youth, and their future, are in your hands.
“From our perspective, adding children to the experience was the most impotant move to complete the big picture. But it required utmost respect for victims of war, so understandably, we wanted to present the topic without any gratuitous gore. In fact, our goal was to show how little ones perceive the reality of an armed conflict. And again, if you decide to purchase the DLC, you’re contributing one dollar to War Child. Thank you!” – 11 Bit Studio Developers
