“In war, not everyone is a soldier.”

Anomaly Developer 11 bit studios has announced its newest game today, This War of Mine. The game takes place in a modern day city, besieged caught in the middle of an open conflict. Instead of going the cliched route and focusing on battle-hardened soldiers out to save the day, the game will follow a group of citizens who are just trying to survive.

Due to the snipers outside, any attempt to leave their shelter is futile but also offers the chance to craft, upgrade your shelter, trade, feed and cure your survivors. Instead they will have have to use the cover of night, in order to head out and scavenge for food, weapons and other supplies. It won’t be easy as time is precious in this dark survival game.

Inspired by real-life events, This War of Mine has important messages for players; “This can happen in your city, in your country.”

“While designing a new game, we came across an article that described how one man survived in a besieged city. We learned about his hardships and the horror of that experience. We decided to work around this idea and make something real, something that moves people and makes them stop think for a second. It’s about time that games, just like any other art form, start talking about important things.” Lead designer lead Michal Drozdowski explains.

Players will have to make harrowing life-and-death decisions for the sake of the group. The studio claims there “are no good or bad decisions during war. There’s only survival.” So will you do everything in your power to protect everyone in your shelter, or sacrifice some in order to prevail? View the teaser trailer below.

We will have more details on This War of Mine as they come to light, including release date and platform availability. Stay tuned.
