This War of Little Ones

Finally, after an excruciatingly long wait, The Little Ones‘ expansion for This War of Mine has come to Steam. Released some time ago for consoles, there were initially no plans for a PC release. However, this was primarily due to 11 Bit being a small, independent studio with a finite budget and efforts to raise money for the War Child charity. Every sale of The Little Ones includes a $1 donation, and they have already raised over $137k. Which would suggest a comparable number of sales on the consoles.

Now we can do our part to bolster that. Available now, at a 10% reduced price of $8.99/£6.29 we can return to the war torn world of This War of Mine. This time seen through the eyes of children, who just want to be children. And the adults who want to do everything in their power to ensure that they can. Heavy stuff, and extremely compelling.

Official Press Release

This War of Mine: The Little Ones arrives today on PC, navigating the terrible realities of wartime from a new perspective while also helping to raise money for the War Child charity.

This War of Mine: The Little Ones DLC Lands Today on Steam and Games Republic.

The biggest expansion to This War of Mine (over 100 awards, including IGF and SXSW Festival Award) explores the hardships of wartime survival as seen from an entirely new perspective ― that of a child. This DLC puts you in charge of a group of adults and children stuck in a besieged city, struggling with basic necessities. This War of Mine: The Little Ones focuses not only on the reality of enduring war, but also on how even in times of conflict, kids are still kids: they laugh, cry, play, and see the world differently. In addition to thinking about survival, you’ll have to summon your inner child to understand how to protect the little ones.

From the beginning, 11 bit studios has invited the gaming community to raise funds for War Child, which helps kids suffering from wars all around the globe. To date, gamers all around the world have raised an incredible amount of over $137.000 for War Child, and it’s still growing. The Little Ones DLC is a part of this initiative as well – $1 from each purchase goes to War Child.

The DLC launches with a 10% discount at $8.99. See the trailer here and find more at the official website and Facebook page.

I gotta check this out soon, huge fan of 'This War of Mine', such a horrifyingly bleak, yet satisfying to play, loved it's unique stylized look.
