This War of Mine is a game about conflict unlike any you’ve seen before. The focus in this game is not on the guns or the conflict, but rather on the civilians trying to survive day to day.

To really focus on the reality of the situation and to highlight the struggles civilians go through on a regular basis, the developers chose to incorporate themselves, their families and friends into the game. 3D models in games are usually from actors or other professionals, but 11 bit wanted This War of Mine to feel more authentic and so they chose to 3D scan themselves into their game. 

In the video above, you can watch as programmer Olek is transformed into a priest in the game. It’s worth a watch if you’re interested in-game development or This War of Mine. 

Currently the release date is set for Q4 for PC, Mac & Linux, with the open possibility of mobile applications in the future.
