When we found out
that the acclaimed This War of Mine (Win 10)
is headed to consoles, a lot of folks were excited. Subsequent coverage showed us just how detail-oriented the developers are, with motion-capture sessions including children for authenticity. Now, developer 11-bit Studios and publisher Deep Silver have brought us another dev diary video for the expanded console version, This War of Mine: The Little Ones
The original has already been hailed for tackling such serious subject matter, and as a great portrayal of how ordinary people see war. This latest video for the expanded console version shows how the tough choices your average person has to make in a war can affect our most vulnerable wartime asset: the children. The developers are attempting to push the boundaries of the types of topics examined by modern gaming, and their enthusiasm is evident. Watch the video below and ask yourself what you would do when your choices directly impact a child of war.
This War of Mine: The Little Ones
releases on January 29th, 2016 on Xbox One.
