This War of Mine

 

This War of Mine (11 bit studios) is a survival video game, where you play as a group of civilians (ranging from one to five players) living in a war zone. The game is loosely based on the siege of Sarajevo from 1992-1996. The game has two cycles, Day and Night. During the day, you construct large objects (beds, stoves, metal shops etc.) or commodities (cooked meals, cigarettes, alcohol etc.) and repair your home (a large, war-torn house). During the night, you can either sleep, guard your home, or scavenge. Players select where to scavenge from a variety of locations throught the city.

This War of Mine offers an interesting perspective on videos games set during war. Expect to become very attached to the characters and expect to become engrossed in the game.
