    Matmiha's This war of mine (PC)

    [January 28, 2016 12:54:20 AM]
    After scavenging the villa two nights in a row I finally decided to expand onto other locations. Before the night fell I got a knock on the door. Last two times I got a knock on the door it was the bartering guy. And I would choose to barter just because I was worried that if I don't barter, he would come back and steal my stuff. I guess this was my assumption from his message "you will regret this later" if I choose not to. However this time it was not him at the door, it was a woman who asked for my assistance to board up her house because scavengers would break in and steal stuff. At this point I was certain it was connected to the villa I robbed the previous two night. I did feel a bit guilty, so without hesitation I sent Bruno out to help her. In a way I was hoping that she was from the villa, as this request from her gave me a chance to repay her for the items I stole.

    One thing that I noticed while playing the game was that I’m constantly returning to the abandoned cottage even though there were many other locations available to scavenge. One of the reasons is I was trying to see how much I could retrieve from a single location and if the items re-spawn, the second reason is I initially felt bad going into the ruined villa. I wanted to see if I could survive without stealing from others. But that didn’t last long. After a short while Pavle got sick and everyone else was extremely hungry so I had no other choice but to steal from the Ruined Villa location. The first time I went there I was very careful not to get caught. Spent a lot of time sneaking and just examining the house. Was really struck me how quickly my behavior changed. Upon returning to the Ruined Villa for the second time I was less cautious and greedier. I was taking my chances and stealing any item that I really needed, and even a few that I didn’t have any use of. One thing that really got to me was when I looked through the eye hole and noticed one of the tenants of the house going through a drawer that I previously scavenged and saying to himself how he can’t find something, something that I have stolen the night before. I felt a bit bad, but just a little bit. I mean, Pavle is sick and I had to steal it. After that I found myself not going back to the Ruined Villa quite as often…

    So I heard quite a lot about “This War of Mine”, but never had the opportunity to play it until now. I actually bought the game about a year ago, as I knew I would eventually play it. So here are some initial thoughts about it.
    Before I started playing the game I opened the Option menu and found the usual Audio/Video settings, however I also found two settings under the “Misc.” category: Language and Temperature. Language is expected, but I was quite surprised to see the option of switching the Temperature between Fahrenheit and Celsius. This immediately gave me the impression that temperature plays an important part of the game and at this moment I already started fearing my characters’ lives, I can already see one of them dying from the cold, and I haven’t even started playing.

    The first 10 minutes of playing I spent learning the basics and quickly realized that this game is all about scavenging resources necessary to survive and managing the distribution of said resources. As scavenging is such an important part of gameplay I quickly realized that Marko (in game character who has the largest capacity to scavenge) became my number one, my favorite. Pavlov and Bruno were less important to me at this time. After four sleepless nights of scavenging, Marko’s stats quickly deteriorated as I was overworking him, he became extremely tired and in need of rest, while Bruno and Pavlov were mostly sleeping and not doing much.

    It is interesting how the character that I liked the most got overworked the most. I liked him but at the same time didn’t care for him. A very sad begging. Marko is now recovering while Bruno and Pavlov take his place scavenging.
