This War of Mine
Second Run: Early 2020
A War of Our Own is a one-shot immersive live action role-playing event about life in a war zone, with proceeds going to benefit war refugee children. We are proud to be sponsored and supported by 11-bit Studios, creators of the award-winning game This War of Mine; as well as Temple Airsoft, a veteran owned and operated business donating considerable resources and material to the event.
With their generous support, a limited number of copies of the computer game This War of Mine will be offered free with the purchase of a ticket to the live action charity event.
In war, not everyone is a soldier.
In A War of Our Own, you are not a fighter. You are not a combatant. You are one of the civilians caught in the middle. You are trying to survive, live, grow and love in the shadow of conflict.
A War of Our Own is not a power fantasy experience, but one day experience that tries to convey war’s consequences to the civilians caught in the middle.
In 2014, the ground-breaking video game This War of Mine was published by 11 bit studios. It stunned players with its harsh depiction of the civilian experience of war. Now, with their cooperation, Jackalope Live Action Studios is creating a Live Action Role-Playing (LARP) experience inspired by the award-winning game, A War of Our Own.
Jackalope Studios is partnering with Temple Airsoft to provide real military vehicles and full-size war-ravaged town for the event.
Set in a fictional country torn by civil war, players will experience a small taste of the desperation of trying to live in a war zone. The event is written with veterans of the NATO intervention in Bosnia and Herzegovina; and the Iraq War; and in collaboration of refugee advocates throughout the world.
