To touch on it quickly, This War of Mine is an utterly brutal survival game inspired by the Bosnian War ('92-'96). Rather than playing as trained soldiers you're surviving as civilians caught in the crossfire. Mechanics, chefs, teachers, journalists, you name it. It's your job to make some difficult, and often immoral, decisions to ensure the survival of your group.

Two years after the game struck out in the world, this DLC adds new characters, new locations to explore, and a totally new ending which affects the outcome of the game.

If you haven't had the pleasure of diving into it just yet, and are old enough to do so, you can find the game on Google Play and the App Store for a currently-discounted price of £1.99/$1.99.
