This War of Ours

by G. Christopher Williams

16 March 2015

If The Sims were created, not by Will Wright, but by a committed nihilist, This War of Mine might be the result.
 

The Sims meets nihilism in this life simulator set within a war torn urban center.

This War of Mine is provocative, and this week we discuss the emergent narratives that arise from playing this indie from 11 bit Studios.
