Most war games put the player in the role of a heroic soldier. Or, if we're going to be honest about it, a super soldier. You get the best weapons vehicles, you're in adrenaline-fuelled, nail-biting situations and you're perfectly placed to turn things around and save the day.

Not so in This War of Mine. The game drops players into an active warzone not as a fighter, but as someone just trying to get out the other end of the conflict alive. It's not about madcap heroics, it's about scavenging for food and resources, building the things that you need and facing terrible decisions.

For this retail release developer 11 Bit Studios has introduced a new element to the mix released as DLC on PC - children. With children to care for, each decision is heightened. Things will be manageable to start with. There will be nearby buildings to scavenge through and you'll send party members out looking for things by night then craft by day. But as the conflict drags on and resources dwindle, decisions that might have seemed unconscionable before suddenly become frighteningly close to being acted on.

With the other addition of the Father's Promise DLC, which introduces a new storyline based on an audio drama written by the famous Polish author, Lukasz Orbitowski, this is the most complete edition of This War of Mine to date. This isn't just a game, it's an anti-war tool that asks the question 'how far would you go to survive?'
