This War of Mine: The Little Ones Mo-caps Kids

By Mark Delaney, 1 year ago
With the news that This War of Mine is coming to consoles as the expanded This War of Mine: The Little Ones, people are probably really excited to try out the game for themselves. Well, maybe 'excited' isn't the right word for a game that is, in part, a starvation simulator. People like darkness, though. It lets them touch sadness without having to get it all over your hands.

This developer diary discusses the new features as well as the development goals of The Little Ones. In it, we see how 11 bit Studios took on the obstacle of stringent labor laws and motion captured real little kids. And with that, Andy Serkis has lost another job.


This War of Mine: The Little Ones comes to Xbox One on January 29th of next year.
