  1. 11 bit studios, the developer behind the upcoming Frostpunk, has decided to give away their previous indie hit This War of Mine for free in the lead up to Frostpunk's release later this month. This War of Mine tells the story of civilians trapped in a besieged city as they struggle to survive under the harsh conditions of war. Players must craft upgrades and supplies out of what they can scavenge from the surrounding areas at night. During scavenging runs, players can run across NPCs that they can either help or hurt depending on what players believe might be in their best interest. It's a deliberately murky game that focuses on the often untold stories of wartime. The goal is to survive until a ceasefire ends the fighting, but since the game randomizes a lot of the events and resources with each playthrough, the player never knows how long they might have to hold out or how far they might have to go to survive. This War of Mine has sold over 2.5 million copies and has reeled in numerous awards from organizations like SXSW and IGF. Sales of the DLC content related to This War of Mine support the War Child charity that provides assistance to children who are currently living under conflict conditions of the aftermath of war. The studio will be giving away This War of Mine: Anniversary Edition that includes new characters, locations, and a completely new ending. You have until this Sunday, April 8, to download the game from Steam. View full article

  3. Just three years ago, This War of Mine released on PC to relate the experience of civilians struggling to survive in the midst of war. The indie game developed by 11 bit studios has continued to receive support over the years in the form of translations and expansions. However, 11 bit has undertaken a new effort to bring life back to their dramatic survival title. The initiative, called This War of Mine Stories, aims to bring a number of narrative adventures to life. Father's Promise will be the first of these DLC expansions. It uses the framework of This War of Mine to weave the compelling tale of Adam, a man trying to protect his daughter and escape from their war-torn city. 11 bit studios based Father's Promise on an audio-drama by author Łukasz Orbitowski. Orbitowski has won awards for his literary accomplishments and has been hailed as "a Polish Steven King." It is unclear whether future Stories DLC will also be based on Orbitowski's work or if they will draw from other sources of inspiration. Father's Promise is available now for $1.99 or can be obtained by purchasing a season pass for all This War of Mine Stories for $4.99. View full article

  5. Being a small studio, 11 bit studios doesn't have a robust translation department. However, they want their indie hit about people struggling for survival during wartime to be played by as many people around the world as possible. Their solution to bring This War of Mine to the widest possible audience is kind of brilliant. We've seen a lot of companies and people tapping into the power of crowdsourcing to get games funded, prove concepts, and support ongoing projects. What we've never seen before is a company turning officially to the internet to crowdsource translations. Usually, games are translated by in-house translators or third party companies that specialize in translation. If a game achieves a large enough following or find its way into the hands of super fans who have the necessary skills, they are sometimes unofficially translated into languages that are outside of the core market languages like English, Japanese, French, German, Spanish, etc. 11 bit studios aims to change that with their new tool, Babel. Babel was created with the help of community members from Vietnam and Hungary and, alongside the launch of the Babel tool, This War of Mine can now be played in Vietnamese and Hungarian with Czech following soon. People who are interested in joining and translating the game into new languages can register at babel.thiswarofmine.com and join/create the team translating This War of Mine into the language they'd like to see it in. Granted, this tool is only for This War of Mine, but imagine if it proved to be immensely popular and was modified to work with other titles. This could be really amazing for populations that might not otherwise see games in their native language.
