    60 Seconds! is a dark comedy atomic adventure of scavenge and survival. Collect supplies and rescue your family before the nuke hits. Stay alive in your fallout shelter. Make difficult decisions, ration food and hunt mutant cockroaches. And maybe survive. Or not.

    60 Seconds! requires at least an iPhone 5, iPad 3, or iPad mini 2.

    As Ted, a responsible citizen and a family man, you are faced with a slight disturbance to your happy, suburban lifestyle. THE NUCLEAR APOCALYPSE.

    With only 60 seconds left to impact, guide Ted in a mad, intense and action packed dash through his house in search of his family and useful supplies. Everything will be against you - time, your very own furniture, the house that's different every time you play and the fundamental question - what to take with you and who to leave behind?

    Reaching the fallout shelter in time and alive is only the beginning. Whatever you scavenged and whoever you saved will play a vital role in your survival. Each survival story will be different, with every day surprising you with unexpected events. Will all of these stories end well? It's up to you. Ration food and water, make best use of your supplies, face difficult choices and even venture into the wasteland.

    Good luck.

    EXPERIENCE
    the suburbian nightmare of a nuke dropping down on your neighbourhood in this atomic, dark comedy set in 1950s.

    SCAVENGE
    any supplies, you will need to survive, and family members in a 60 second rush through your randomly generated house.

    PREPARE
    for the worst. Don’t just grab arbitrary items, plan your survival and follow helpful tips from emergency broadcasts!

    SURVIVE
    in a fallout shelter with whatever you brought with you. How many days will you last? Will everyone make it out alive?

    DECIDE
    what to do, when the post-apocalyptic world pushes you to the corner. Will you risk going outside? Who is not eating dinner, when barely any food is left? How do you deal with a mutant cockroach infestation?

    "If you've not already played this brilliant, heart-wrenching game, then mobile is as good a place as any to let it completely destroy you." - , 9/10, Pocket Gamer UK

    "This War of Mine isn’t exactly “fun,” but it’s definitely a game worth playing." , 9/10, 148apps

    "I'm really excited to go home and download 11 bit studios' title on my iPad" , Game Informer

    In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.

    The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.

    Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.

    This War of Mine: Anniversary Edition
    It's been two years since This War of Mine global release and we're still expanding the experience. This new free DLC, created especially for the Anniversary Edition, adds new characters, new locations to explore, and most importantly - a whole new ending, leading to a different outcome to the game. The dilemma though remains the same – how far will you go, to protect the ones you care about?

    Key Features:
    • Inspired by real-life events
    • Control your survivors and manage your shelter
    • Craft weapons, alcohol, beds or stoves – anything that helps you survive
    • Make decisions - an often unforgiving and emotionally difficult experience
    • Randomized world and characters every time you start a new game
    • Charcoal-stylized aesthetics to complement the game's theme

    This War of Mine experience is now broadened with "The Little Ones" expansion. "The Little Ones" 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. TWoM: 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. Their youth, and their future, are in your hands.

    • Experience the biggest expansion to This War of Mine
    • Protect innocent children
    • Craft toys, play with kids, and be the caretaker they need
    • Meet new adult civilians in scenarios with children

    PLEASE NOTE: This game is optimized for latest devices. While playing on older devices such as iPhone 4s or iPad 2 you might experience lower frame rates.
