What would you do with 500k dollars? | This War of Mine and War Child changing the world



More than 4 300 children received help thanks to 11 bit studios and War Child UK charity cooperation.

On November 14th, 2014 the indie smash hit This War of Mine had its premiere and that date has become special for at least one more reason. On that day, 11 bit studios joined forces with War Child, a British charity organization dedicated to helping children affected by conflict all around the world. Together, 11 bit studios and War Child created charity DLC which added war-themed works of world-famous graffiti artists to the game. Players could buy the DLC for a set price and 100% of the net income was donated to the charity. Today, more than four years after launching the initiative, we can demonstrate what has been achieved with this cooperation.

We’ve prepared a special video to tell everyone about it. You can watch it here https://youtu.be/17ojWP--0fs
Since the launch on November 14th, more than $500,000 has been donated to the cause. This money helped to support War Child deliver its programmes across countries including Afghanistan, Iraq, the Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo and Yemen:
  • 3 Temporary Learning Spaces were established where 260 children were able to carry on with their education and exams to complete their school year
  • Place 26 unaccompanied children with foster families in Bambari, Central African Republic
  • In Iraq – provide summer schooling to 457 students
  • In Afghanistan - Support 840 children aged four to six to access Early Childhood and Care Development in Kabul and Herat
  • Expand our child helpline in Democratic Republic of Congo, which received 14,557 calls in 2017 and 2,215 children were referred to specialized child protection organizations
  • Fund a new fundraising arm at War Child dedicated to working with gamers, which has raised over $2.5 million to date

None of this would be possible, without the help of the players. We would like to thank you all.

If you want to support War Child UK, you can do it directly at www.warchild.co.uk or by buying This War of Mine Charity DLC on Steam here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/348040/This_War_of_Mine__War_Child_Charity_DLC/

“This War of Mine is a gripping survival sim, and a great study of survival during wartime and civil collapse.”
8.4 – IGN UK

“This War of Mine shows the horrors of war in a way, that we rarely can experience in a game.”
9 – Giga Games

“Is this a game you want to play? No. Is it a game anyone with a beating heart should play? Yes. A million times yes. It's a longform exercise in empathy, a sobering piece of work that fills in the blanks left when all we see of war are the headshots. It's a much-needed course correct in the current shoot-first-ask-questions-never gaming landscape that supposes war is won because one supreme badguy caught a bullet through his brainstem. No: It's won when the people who lived under his boot get to go home.”
8 – Gamespot

About This Game



In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.

The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.

Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.

This War of Mine: Anniversary Edition

It's been two years since This War of Mine global release and we're still expanding the experience. This new free DLC, created especially for the Anniversary Edition, adds new characters, new locations to explore, and most importantly - a whole new ending, leading to a different outcome to the game. The dilemma though remains the same – how far will you go, to protect the ones you care about? 

This War of Mine:

  • Inspired by real-life events
  • Control your survivors and manage your shelter
  • Craft weapons, alcohol, beds or stoves – anything that helps you survive
  • Make decisions - an often unforgiving and emotionally difficult experience
  • Randomized world and characters every time you start a new game
  • Charcoal-stylized aesthetics to complement the game's theme

IGN

This War of Mine might be the war game we need.

Gamespot

I was intrigued by This War of Mine's attempts to portray the consequences of war in a way that games have largely ignored in the past. The fact that the psychological and emotional challenges of living under such horrifying conditions are something you have to consider as you struggle gives me added hope that it might treat its hefty and important subject matter with the gravity and complexity that it deserves.

Game Informer

11bit is blazing a new thematic trail amidst the currently popular survival genre, and so far the studio seems to have something special on its hand.
