Frostpunk is a city-builder game developed by 11bit Studios where you build and expand a city using the endless expanse of ice around you to turn into steam to power your machines.
In an ultimately frozen world, people develop steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. The city ruler has to manage both the inhabitants and the infrastructure the citizens live in. The Leader’s tactical skills face challenges, frequently questioning the morality and the basic foundation of what we consider an organized society.
Frostpunk is the first game of society survival. The sub-genre created by 11 bit studios fulfills the need to underline unusual mixture of city builder, survival and society simulation. Frostpunk takes on what people are capable of when pushed to the limits. What interests us is what society do to survive and how it changes in the process. How survival in the end leaves us different beings. If worse, better, stronger, weaker or, last but not least, more or less humane – that is debatable.
“Frostpunk is not one of those city-builder games like SimCity where you have a problem with crime and you build three police stations and that solves your problem,” says Karol Zajaczkowski marketing manager at 11 bit Studios. “No, that won’t happen in Frostpunk. You have to make decisions and deal with the consequences. We don’t want people to face very simple tasks.” he further added. Karol Zajaczkowski. He also believes that the game story “will tear you apart”.
“When you think that the weather is the only thing that can harm you in Frostpunk: it’s not,” he said. “There are different layers, there are different elements to the game. Weather is like the first player on that screen but there are others and you have to be cautious about all of them.”
