This war of mine is a video game with a humane twist: instead of playing as soldiers, the player walks through the eyes of civilians who are trying to make their way through the war.
Set in the fictional city of Pogoren, Graznavia, the goal is to survive as ordinary citizens with no military experience using whatever resources are available while protecting one’s loved ones and family members until a ceasefire is arbitrarily called.
This video game is taking the world by storm because it offers unique insight to those who may never have lived through a war and shows that war is never the answer because no side goes unscathed.
Versions of the game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were released early this year.
