Chilling Trailer For This War Of Mine

It was in 1879 that, addressing a graduating class from the Michigan Military Academy, General William Tecumseh Sherman supposedly used the haunting phrase "War is hell".

Rubbing against the grain of video games that thrust gamers into glorious action set pieces and brutal conflicts, This War of Mine is a title that looks to entertain in a shocking, uneasy fashion. As the following launch trailer illustrates, this is a war game from the General Sherman school of thought.

Rather than playing the standard high-powered soldier of improbable skill, This War of Mine casts players as civilians looking to survive and escape the hardship of a warzone. Depicted in a gritty, sketched aesthetic, instead of capturing way points or taking out enemy outposts, you're tasked with searching a besieged city for scraps and survivors that might help your cause.

Set to arrive on Steam on 14 November, this is a game for those of you looking for something a bit different to the average call to arms.
