Games about war, although insanely well-liked, do little to Illustrate the hardships faced by troopers and civilians. With its stark design and target survival, This War of Mine (TWOM) set out to change that. The indie game from the devs behind the Anomaly series struck a chord, becoming an immediate hit and occurring to reap awards. 3 years later, it appears the title still has some life left in it, with eleven Bit Studios releasing the 1st chapter during a TWOM DLC series.
Dubbed Father’s Promise, the introduction episode you put in the control of Adam, a father attempting to protect his daughter from the horrors of war while trying to escape a besieged city. The situation might seem familiar to console gamers that played TWOM: the little Ones for PS4 and Xbox One, that put you in charge of a group of adults and kids.
A story of “love, hate, and sacrifice” is how its creators describe the DLC, thus be prepared for one more round of emotive gameplay. Whereas TWOM catches its hints from the Bosnian War, now eleven-bit studios could be adding narrative flourishes from the work of Polish author Łukasz Orbitowski.
You can grab Father’s Promise on Steam for $1.99, or as a part of a season pass for $4.99.
