|Overview:||11 Bit Studios' This War of Mine is an acclaimed independent game which provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle. For the very first time you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city. In this talk, 11 bit's senior writer Pawl Miechowski discusses the concept of showing war from the perspective of civilians. How do you cover the emotional challenge - not just the physical - of the civilians/characters? How can you make the player be a perfect narrator? And how do you connect that with engaging gameplay?|
