This War of Mine is an eloquently done group of mechanisms oozing with themes and stories.
Every gamer should give this game a try. I have never played the PC version, so I can give no comparisons there, but the board game version is a very interesting and fun experience to partake in. It's a challenging game with twists and turns and decisions!
The book of scripts is included which gives you a story book which adds to the narrative of the game. Dreary, dark and usually dank, the stories within may help or hinder your survival chances.
