Second and Third Plays. 01/27/2015 and 01/28/2015.
My second time through I ran into more ethical dilemmas. Apparently these are based on real life (and death) situations in war. Do I open the door to do business with people? Do I help an old woman board up her place so people don’t get in and kill her overnight, endangering my own (character’s) life in the process? Tough questions, made easier by this being a game where I can experiment.
The first time I die reminds me of the ending of The Book Thief, but more final feeling. The real cost of war is life. It costs everyone a piece of their lives, and it haunts what we have left. From some it exhausts the ultimate price. I am grateful it did not cost me the ultimate price.
