Looking to blend city building with survival, Frostpunk is releasing today on PC. 11 Bit Studios are probably best known for This War of Mine, but this game looks to take things a step further and really explore tricky moral quandaries, as shown in the new launch trailer.
Grzegorz Miechowski, CEO at 11 bit studios said, “We’ve been searching this fascinating grey area, where nothing is purely good or evil. You, as a player, need to make decisions based on your moral compass and ability to foresee the consequences of your choices. From deciding the fate of individuals to deciding the destiny of an entire society – that was the creative process of Frostpunk. That’s how I’ve watched this game develop into a story about the price of power; about the responsibility of being a leader.”
While the game is only out for PC today, a version of the game is being worked on for console. It might take some time, as 11 bit have to translate the keyboard and mouse controls on computer to something workable on controller.
