This War Of Mine At MGS
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Mac Gamer HQ has posted a new gameplay video showcasing the recently released This War of Mine from 11 bit studios. The adventure game provides a unique perspective in war games, following the struggles of a group of civilians in a war torn city rather than the exploits of elite soldiers.

This War of Mine puts you in the shoes of a few survivors trapped within a city shredded by an ongoing civil war. For once you’re not a super soldier capable of killing hundreds of enemies per mission. Here you can actually feel the desperation and hopelessness that only war could bring.

The game functions around a day and night cycle allowing you to alternate between managing your resources and scavenging for more. But there’s no better way to explain this than to actually show you the game in action

Mac Gamer HQ Releases This War Of Mine Gameplay Vid
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

This War of Mine from 11 bit studios is available now for purchase at Mac Game Store. The unique adventure offers players the chance to take charge of a group of civilians struggling to survive in a besieged city lacking food, medicine, and safety.

In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.

The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.

Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.

Features:

  • Inspired by real-life events
  • Control your survivors and manage your shelter
  • Craft weapons, alcohol, beds or stoves – anything that helps you survive
  • Make decisions - an often unforgiving and emotionally difficult experience
  • Randomized world and characters every time you start a new game
  • Charcoal-stylized aesthetics to complement the game's theme
Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.6 or later
  • 2.4 GHz Dual Core Intel Mac
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 512 MB VRAM
  • Video:
    • ATI Radeon HD 4670
    • NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
    • Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • Requires Steam and a Steam Account to play
This War of Mine is available now for $19.99 (USD).
