The team over at 11 bit studios, the makers of the critically acclaimed survival game This War of Mine, will be releasing another thought-provoking “actions have consequences” style game, Frostpunk where players take on the role of a ruler known as the “Captain” who is leading survivors to build a self-sustaining city while making some hard decisions.
The story takes place in an alternate Steampunk reality of 1886. It’s summer but global temperatures have dropped well below freezing turning the world into a frozen wasteland. The player takes on the role of a leader of a group of survivors who he’s led to a gigantic furnace where they can stay warm and build a city around it.
Players will have to deal with the plight of their people ranging from hunger, disease, monotony, and the human condition. Players will not only have to gather resources to build but also have to make decisions (or “events” as they’re called) that could result in success or death that can affect certain aspects how the people’s morale. The more you succeed the more your technology tree grows allowing you to build more buildings/shops that can allow citizens to upgrade their jobs (mill workers, hunters, medical etc.), either way, the roads of this Rome is paved in frozen bodies. What kind of leader will you become?
Frostpunk will be out on April 24th for Windows but there are talks about it coming to PlayStation 4 as well let’s hope that it will be like This War of Mine and be eventually released on all platforms!
