This War of Mine developer 11 bit Studios released downloadable content for the game at the beginning of March with proceeds supporting the War Child charity. The group is working across Iraq and Jordan to protect and support Syrian refugee children.
11 bit revealed that the sales of the This War of Mine's War Child Charity DLC mean that the group can offer a range of supports to 350 children. War Child will be able to provide psycho social support to recover from trauma, child friendly spaces to keep children safe, and pays for things like school fees and teacher training.
The charity DLC was available for $0.99, $9.99, or $19.99 with 100% of proceeds going to support War Child’s efforts. In return, players were able to unlock unique in-game street art from artists around the world, 11 bit Studios’ graphic artists, and members of War Child UK.
This War of Mine is a survival game with players controlling a group of civilian survivors in a war-torn city. Players must keep them fed, healthy, and relatively happy until a ceasefire is declared. But as they have nomilitary background or any kind of survival experience, they require constant supervision. Occasionally, they will come across fellow survivors who they can help by parting with their own meagre resources or they can rob from them. What will you do to survive in this bleak climate?
