The horrors of war are neverending for those caught in the middle of a conflict. So it stands to reason that the scenarios one would encounter in such situations would also be vast and unique from person to person. With that said, developer 11 bit Studios is now opening the door for This War of Mine players to share their own crafted scenarios with a new update issued today.
Starting today, players can utilize enhanced modding tools to share single-player This War of Mine scenarios via Steam Workshop. To help make this a little easier, 11 bit is offering new tools within the game's Scenario Editor, including new characters and language options. Of course, the idea of having affluent first-world gamers pen tales of war-torn families does potentially open the door to some sillier scenarios, but the developer is looking forward to the gems that will inevitably emerge.
"This is just the beginning, with additional tools being developed that will give almost unlimited possibilities for the modding scene," creative director Michal Drozdowski said via this morning's press release. "We know it's a challenge. After all, This War of Mine tackles serious topics and exposes genuine emotions, and since we're going to open up the game, many new types of war stories will appear. Yes, some of them will undoubtedly be silly, but I cannot wait to see those that approach the tragedy of war in a respectful way. I'm sure people have thousands of great scenarios in their heads and soon they will be able to bring them to life."
