About a week and a half ago 11 Bit Studios’ somber strategy survival game about war from a civilian perspective, This War of Mine ($13.99), received an update that added Universal iPhone support. Finally, millions of iPhone owners would get to experience one of the best game’s to arrive on iOS this year. Except for one thing… a show-stopping bug crept into that update. 11 Bit had not choice but to take the game down and get things fixed up, which is what they did. As of yesterday This War of Mine is back in working order and back on the App Store, and as a special bonus it’s even on sale for $6.99.
If you’re wondering what the fuss is over This War of Mine, be sure to give our review a read as this is a very though-provoking and important game. War games often focus on the historical, or focus on the high intensity gunplay with little consequence. This War of Mine gives you the perspective of those whose lives are disrupted by war through no fault of their own, and it’s utterly heartbreaking. It’s worth every penny of its regular $14.99 price, so at more than half-off currently and with newly-added iPhone support this is a great opportunity to see what it’s all about.
