This War of Mine is an indie game previously reviewed by TechRaptor where you play civilians attempting to survive in the middle of a war-torn city. The gameplay successfully emulates some of the brutal choices and unforgiving conditions civilians living in a war zone face every day of their lives.
11bitstudios just released the War Child Charity DLC with 100% of the proceeds going to War Child. You can choose between paying $0.99, $9,99, or $19.99 and get the same content regardless of your choice. The actual content of the DLC is art pieces that you can find and collect in-game:
This War of Mine – War Child Charity DLC contains unique street art pieces made by artists from all over the world including: M-City, Gabriel “Specter” Reese, SeaCreative, Emir Cerimovic, Fauxreel and Mateusz Waluś. You’ll be able to find all of them in different places within This War of Mine, building a unique in-game gallery. The compositions represent reflections on the human condition and the state of humanity during a time of war.
The developers 11bitstudios have used their game as a vehicle to change the lives of people who have suffered the horrors of living in a war zone. This War of Mine has a button on the game’s title screen that leads to the War Child charity’s website, and 11bitstudios have previously run a raffle which raised $4,619 for War Child.
War Child has provided services to children in Iraq, Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Uganda including training social workers, rebuilding schools, providing school supplies for impoverished students, and livelihood training through vocational programs. Founded in 1993 by David Wilson and Bill Leeson, War Child strives to remain apolitical and impartial so that they can focus on their mission of helping children living in some of the most dangerous areas in the world.
