This War of Mine is an incredible experience, telling the story of civilians and their efforts to survive a besieged city, struggling for food and medicine and trying to remain safe from scavengers and snipers who would kill them for the scraps they have left. Its stark story is a rare portrayal in gaming of the horrors of war and its traumatic effect on humanity. The game has sold millions of copies and 11 bit studios has used it to do good in anti-war causes, such as drawing in donations for the Ukranian Red Cross in the wake of Russia’s war on the country.
