You can now experience the harsh realities of war in This War of Mine: Stories – Father’s Promise on iOS and Android today.
The realities of war are harsh and seeing how they might affect one mentally, physically, and even spiritually isn’t just a heartbreaking experience, it’s a devastating one that no one should have to face the reality of at any given point in time.
Today, 11 bit studios has released a new and harrowing tale within their franchise This War of Mine, one that has left a forever lasting impact on me as a person. The new release, This War of Mine: Stories – Father’s Promise is the latest entry, which has released as a stand-alone game for iOS and Android.
This new entry tells the story of a family struggling to preserve what last pieces of humanity that they have in times of despair and cruelty that are brought on by the ongoing horrors of war. You’ll become Adam, a man working hard to save his daughters from the harsh reality and horrors of war that they now call their own as their city becomes besieged as the war rages on.
You’ll follow his steps, discovering a story of love, of hate, and of sacrifice – the very emotions that keep us alive in the darkest days we have yet to face. However, it’s brought to life by the audio-drama by famous Polish author, Łukasz Orbitowski, who shows us just how emotionally difficult experiences such as Adam’s can be.
You’ll test the lines of moral ambiguity, you will cook, craft, and take care of those around you, helping them survive while looking through new locations exclusively tailored to the newly released experience. Visuals have been remastered, enhanced even, from the original This War of Mine.
“This War of Mine as you can imagine is a survival simulator, but in truth, I think that’s sugar coating what it is. If I wanted to be blunt, it puts us into the nightmare that is war. It’s one that lets us understand the misery that accompanies war. It’s a game that will make you want to never see the news the same way again. It’s a war game to put it bluntly. It’s a game that tells the story about a city under siege. If you aren’t familiar with Sarajevo and the Bosnian conflict, you may want to familiarize yourself with it if you haven’t,” I stated last year, showing just how deep This War of Mine actually is, and it seems, not a lot has changed with Father’s Promise.
This War of Mine is now available on all mobile platforms along with Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
