Hey guys! Has anybody played this War of Mine? It's a very interesting game about a few survivors trapped in a city, and how you need to make do with what you have. Each survivor has their own moral compasses, like Person A is apathetic with killing people, but Person B get's affected by it.
It has a very complex statuses system, being content, normal, depressed or broken. Even running while wounded can potentially open up a wound and cause you to have a severe wound, or getting infected. You start out in a shelled-shelter, that is in poor condition, which you attempt to transform into a liveable shelter, building beds, fortifications, heating, metal workshops, to fix kevlar, fix guns, make knives, shovels and much more. Even by a character simply playing a guitar in the shelter can bolster people's' spirits dramatically. Each character has their own strengths and weaknesses, some more than others.
This game is definitely worth checking out, and I recommend it to you guys! I have played the game and completed it a few times, best single player game I have possibly ever played, and if you've played a really interesting game, throw it in this thread if you want
It may look a bit boring on the canvas, but when you really get into it, it's really fun and unique.
I'll do an example of a character: Roman's' persona:
Roman is a very cruel survivor, a belligerent survivor at that. He doesn't get affected as easily as killing people by the others, but if he does slip into Sadness or Depression things can get very violent, with him being the most psychologically-unstable survivor in the game, but simultaneously being the most valuable melee character in the game. If you have the survivor Bruno
can get into a fight with him if Roman is depressed or sad, he can severely-injure him, or just wound him. If Roman is depressed or broken, and if Bruno tries to console him, he will refuse.

Yeah I've played it. I only played one playthrough fully because my subsequent playthroughs afterwards ended up being really bad for some reason. But it's a really thought provoking game and I enjoyed it.
