App Description


Battle for Donetsk ReviewLeaders of several countries and continents are arguing. People are speaking of a new Cold War. Yet thousands of civilians in eastern Ukraine are facing a war that is anything but “cold”, every day. One million people are on the run. During the many fights there have been more than 5000 casualties, yet some research speaks numbers ten times higher. In Battle of Donetsk you are the leader who plays with the lives of these people. You determine the stakes. Can you win? Battle for Donetsk is a war game with an anti-war message. It’s a confronting “topical game”, developed by the independent game studio LuGus Studios. With this game, LuGus Studios does not wish to take a political stance and doesn’t idealize violence and conflicts. Instead, we hope the game will create a strong awareness of the conflict in Ukraine and that its sobering character will be food for thought.
