This War of Mine, 11 bit studios’ strategy game of wartime survival, is now available to pre-order for Android tablets.
This is good news in itself, but the even better is the news is that 15% of all pre-order proceeds will be donated to War Child.
Founded in 1993, War Child is a charity that protects children living in the world’s most dangerous war zones.
This War of Mine will arrive on Android later in July (date TBC). Additionally, anyone who pre-orders the game on Android for $9.99 will immediately receive the PC version via Games Republic – which normally retails at $19.99 – free of charge.
Grzegorz Miechowski, CEO at 11 bi said:
“This War of Mine is a profound experience, unique in the way it pictures war through civilian eyes. It’s rare for a mobile game to approach such an emotional and serious topic, so we wanted to do something special for the Android edition of This War of Mine. War Child is an amazing organization that has helped countless children, and we are proud to offer 15% of all Android pre-order proceeds to aid their cause.”
This War of Mine captures the experience of conflict as seen through the eyes of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city. Although the game is based around decision points, there are no good or bad choices, only different ways to ensure survival. It’s a fascinating, affecting and thought provoking experience.
At GDC this year 11 Bit’s Pawl Miechowski explained how the game uses various techniques to depict war from a new perspective. You can read our report on his talk, right here.
