I bought it. I started it up and after a minute of trying this and that I realised I haven't got a clue what I am supposed to be doing.
So I closed the app and went back to struggling through an early level of Lost Socks.

Pretty graphics though

Don't worry - that is normal. It'll take a few plays (and deaths) before you really work out what to do and in what order. Or you could read a guide, but where's the fun in that? Super game.

Hmm. I'm not a big survival game fan (I didn't enjoy Don't Starve). The idea of This War of Mine intrigues me, but I'm expecting the mechanics aren't my style. Still, 3 bucks...

I am sort on the fence, but I am approaching it like a novel - read the first 50 -100 pages, then decide I don't like it. I had the same thoughts with Titans Quest (one of my most played current games), and Chaos Rings 3 (put over 150 hours into that one). Some of the best games I can ever remember took some getting used to, and didnt immediately grab me.

Guys, buy this game!
It's not just a game, it's an experience!
You will think about this game, even when you're not playing.
And make sure some of your friends or family members are playing the game as well, because you want to talk about it.
There are so many decisions to make...
I had a lot of conversations with my dad, as we both started to play the game last christmas.


Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

What's the minimum age of a child you would say this is okay for?
Thanks
