This War of Mine gets a launch trailer

Developer/publisher 11 bit studios has released the official launch trailer for its upcoming 2.5D survival adventure title, This War of Mine. In This War of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, but 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.

As can be seen in the trailer above, This War of Mine is played from a 2D perspective in which a group of civilians are trying to survive a city besieged by war. Players will have to scavenge and manage food supplies, medicine, all while avoiding soldiers and scavengers. A few weeks ago, 11 bit studios announced a partnership with War Child – a charity organization that’s trying to help people in in a similar situation in the real world. 11 Bit Studios CEO Grzegorz Miechowski said the partnership will help This War of Mine reach more people and raise money for War Child. You can check out more details on War Child on its official website.

“This War of Mine is a dark survival game where the player controls a team of civilians in a besieged city,” reads the game’s official description. “The main goal of the game is to survive the war with the tools and materials the player can gather with the characters they control. The player will have to take care of each character’s needs to keep them performing at their best so they may build tools, salvage resources, cook food, and stay alive. During the day, the player controls the civilians within the house to build their shelter to withstand the war. At night, the player is given the opportunity to venture out and resupply equipment and resources for their everyday survival.”
