'This War of Mine' Celebrates 8th Anniversary With Ukraine Charity Initiative

by Rainier on Nov. 14, 2022 @ 8:00 a.m. PST

This War Of Mine provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle. You do not play as an elite soldier but as a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city.

This War of Mine is a dark survival game where you control a group of civilians trying to stay alive in a besieged city.

Your task is simple: survive.

The pace of the game 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 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 to endure the hardships. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.

Eight years after its 2014 launch, This War of Mine is not only wildly successful in its own right with over 7 million copies sold, but it's also become an embodiment of the hardships civilians face during wartime, a platform for charity fundraising, and even a recognized educational tool.

Now available at Humble Bundle, the This War of Mine: Complete Edition for PC—alongside other titles from 11 bit studios such as Frostpunk: Game of the Year Edition, Moonlighter: Complete Edition, Children of Morta: Complete Edition, South of the Circle, and more—is giving players yet another chance to give back where it counts. When purchasing The Complete 11 bit Collection Game Bundle, players can opt to leave 11 bit in the poor house and donate the entire sum—apart from Humble’s small fixed share—to Razom, an organization dedicated to helping rebuild a prosperous Ukraine.

This act of charity comes on the heels of many other opportunities that first began with the This War of Mine: The Little Ones DLC, as it raised funds—$558,000 and counting—for War Child helping youngsters affected by war. In February of 2022, when Russia invaded Ukraine, 11 bit studios decided to donate the proceeds of one week’s worth of This War of Mine sales to the Ukrainian Red Cross. During that period, 204,000 copies were sold across all platforms raising a massive $850,000 in the process.

The Complete 11 bit Collection Game Bundle at Humble Bundle will be available thru November 17th.

This War of Mine is available for Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
