You can download it now via the App Store and Google Play for the launch price of Ł7.99 (33 per cent off).

If you haven't played it already, This War of Mine comes with a Recommended review badge from Eurogamer and was one of our Games of 2014.

"It sounds horrible. It is horrible. But it's brilliant," Dan Whitehead wrote.

"Suffice to say, it's given me emotional reactions that rival those of any film, book or TV show from this year - not because it tries to be like those things, but because it embraces its strengths as a video game."

A strategy game with survival elements, This War of Mine's story is inspired by the very real atrocities that took place in the Bosnian 1992-96 Siege of Sarajevo. Proceeds from the game's DLC have been donated to charity War Child.
