This War of Mine: The Little Ones DLCLands today on Steam and Games Republic..

The biggest expansion to This War of Mine (over 100 awards, including IGF and SXSW Festival Award) explores the hardships of wartime survival as seen from an entirely new perspective ― that of a child. This DLC puts you in charge of a group of adults and children stuck in a besieged city, struggling with basic necessities. This War of Mine: The Little Ones focuses not only on the reality of enduring war, but also on how even in times of conflict, kids are still kids: they laugh, cry, play, and see the world differently. In addition to thinking about survival, you'll have to summon your inner child to understand how to protect the little ones.


Dead Island Definitive Collection is now available. The wait is over; now players can appreciate every drop of blood in full remastered goriness as it splatters across the screen.

Within the collections, and making its debut in the mix of flesh-rending zombie chaos is a new gem just waiting to be discovered: a classic side-scrolling/endless runner action game, Dead Island Retro Revenge.
