In a completely frozen world, people develop steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. Society in its current form becomes ineffective and it has to change in order to survive.
The makers of This War of Mine and the Anomaly series have announced today that their new game Frostpunk will be releasing later on this year.
Frostpunk is centered around The City which seems to be the only remaining habitable city on the now frozen Earth. To combat the overwhelming cold the people of The City have developed steam powered technology as a means for survival.
Core gameplay revolves around city and society management of what seems to be the last city on earth and its citizens. Strategic at its core, it challenges player's tactical skills while at the same time frequently posing moral struggles for the player to navigate as The City's leader. Here optimization and resource management often clash with empathy and thoughtful decision making.
