This War of Mine
From 11 bit studios comes a gripping game. Inside the survival simulation genre, the game This War of Mine is a bit darker than usual.

A heavier game, not for the faint of heart, but for those who appreciate the darker implications of survival.

Much like Fallout Shelter, this game developed by Unicube and Team 17 Digital is a post-apocalyptic survival simulation. What differs from it is the familiar aspect.

With RPG mechanics, a lot of available customization and good looking pixel graphics, this indie survival management game is a thrill. It is a harder game than Fallout Shelter, less casual and with fewer explanations, but with a lot to craft and a lot of time for you to lose track on.
