Sombre survival game This War of Mine heads to Switch at the end of the month
Developer 11 Bit Studios has announced that its bleak anti-war survival game, This War of Mine, will be heading to Switch on November 27th.
Like 11 Bit Studios’ more recent Frostpunk, This War of Mine is a offers a sobering, thoughtful take on a familiar gaming genre. However, where Frostpunk opts to examine questions of morality through the lens of a post-apocalyptic city builder, This War of Mine adopts the guise of a side-scrolling stealth-survival game, in which you’re charged with keeping a small groups of civilians alive for as long as possible.
11 Bit Studios’ fascinating title unfolds in the midst of unnamed war, splitting the core gameplay loop into day and nighttime. By day, you’re free to explore the derelict building that your band of survivors calls home, embarking on a crafting and maintenance regime in order to make a more habitable homestead. By night, though, you take to the city, stealthily exploring the occupied streets in order to find essential supplies.
