This War Of Mine provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle. For the very first time you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout. At night you get a chance to scavenge nearby 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.
I started playing this game and its really cool. I'm not very wordy today, so I'll quote some other guy quick review.

This game is a real gem.
Yes it's depressive, and that's the goal of it:
"War is delightful to those who haven't experienced it - Erasmus".
Your characters will suffer in this game. When you think you have enough food, materials or water, something will mess everything up.
As your character slowly fall in despair, you eventually get in the same mood. But you'll still want to play, because you have hope you can make it through the war.
