11 Bit Studios, the group behind the popular tower defense game on iOS and Android called ?Anomaly? just announced their upcoming game ?This War Of Mine?.
The game’s setting is not your common soldier-go-rambo type of story and instead, focuses on a realistic modern-time political crisis in a city under heavy conflict. You won?t take the role of a soldier hell bent on exacting revenge or saving the nation for this matter. The gamers will be put in the shoes of normal civilians stranded in the conflict.
The game?s dark survival feel will revolve on a day and night cycle. During the day, strengthening your safe haven?s defenses and crafting useful stuff is going to be the ideal thing to do as there would be snipers scattered around the city ready to blow off any survivor’s heads if they try? to leave. At night, that?s where the survivors get to move out cloaked in darkness and scavenge for foods, supplies, and weapons.
The game is also going to have life and death scenarios where the player will have to choose right away, in real time,? from the given options that will determine if you?ll be managing a few survivors or everyone else dies. Sacrifice is something unavoidable and it is essential to keep the entire group going. The setting of the game is so realistic that the story alone is already gripping in its own right.
This War of Mine was inspired by real-life events and delivers a message. ?This can happen in your city, in your country,? lead designer, Michal Drozdowski said. ?While designing a new game, we came across an article that described how one man survived in a besieged city.
No clear details yet the game?s official release, but it will also make its presence in the upcoming Game Developer?s Conference in March.
