In addition to thinking about survival, you’ll have to bring back the kid in yourself to understand how to protect the little ones. How far will you go to make it through another day?

It is very interesting to see Indie Games that have a true message & a true moral; and risking to explore areas that are rarely explored in videogames.

I think we need more of this type of thing; as it’s a very interesting prospect.

I’m glad for the studio that This War of Mine has done so well. Hopefully it will encourage more games with deeper themes.
