This War of Mine rages on tablets

Soon you’ll be able to play This War of Mine, the game about being on the civilian side of a conflict, on your tablet.

You might know This War of Mine from our coverage of the PC game from a while back. If not, then all you really have to know is that the game is all about survival in a war-torn country.

It’s a fresh take on the ‘war’ theme that pervades a ton of games today (and most of the media at large) and This War of Mine manages to tackle these elements in a thoughtful way- and also look pretty darn good doing it.
