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 does not condone violence and conflict. On the contrary, our aim is to raise awareness of the conflict in Ukraine. Its sobering character should provide some food for thought.
Battle for Donetsk went viral all over the world. The game appeared in news articles, newspapers and TV shows. International media like Russia Today, Sputnik and Popular Science picked up on the story. People all over the world support the project, the amount of positive reactions is amazing. A big thanks to everyone who played the game, shared and talked about it!
