“Not all heroes fight – everyday life in ‘This War of Mine'”
Aleksander KAUCH, 11 bit studios
War always happens at somebody’s doorstep. It’s always affecting common people and destroys their lives. We, as 11 bit studios, tried to show how difficult it is for people like you and me to live during a conflict. Accountant, cook, teacher, dancer, salesman… are all forced to be heroes or villains. What choices lead to either of these paths and how much needs to be sacrificed to survive? I’ll describe the core concepts behind This War of Mine, how we enforced players to make choices they do not want to and how our game is a hero by itself.
