There is no doubt that one of the best games of 2015 was This War of Mine. No game explores the dark, grisly side of humanity better than This War of Mine. What 11 Bit Studios tried to accomplish with the game was to place the player in the shoes of the average citizen in a city under siege. Inspired by true events, the decisions that you are forced to make to survive can test the very basis of your morality. The sequel to the game was released on console recently and it is called This War of Mine: The Little Ones.
Fortunately, 11 Bit Studios announced that the sequel will make its way to mobile in the near future, although no release date was mentioned. With This War of Mine: The Little Ones, new missions and characters have been added, especially children. With this new element in the game, your decisions become tougher since you will be responsible for adults and children. The game’s cover has a line that really summarizes the theme of the game, ”How far will you go, to protect the little ones?”
Many are willing to rob, hurt, or even murder just to protect or provide for their children. With the children equation added to the sequel, the experience will become much darker than before. The sequel will influence you deeply by portraying the children in the game as little kids that are traumatized by war and all that they want is to play, smile, and feel secure. The developers did a phenomenal job in making the game mirror real-world effects and having the player get involved and affected by it.
Not only will you be responsible to protect the group, but also creating a cheerful environment for the children as well. They will often cry or laugh; they can be unpredictable but it is your job to make sure they are taken care of.
