The experience is intensified with The Little Ones version, which includes children to look after. The Little Ones optional expansion content, which can be bought with the game or purchased as downloadable content on PC, Mac, iOS and Android.
It’s a chance to experience the near-impossibility of survival and making the right decisions in these situations, doing the best you can with limited resources.
