Immerse yourself in the 19th century - meant to be the high point of human achievements. Instead, however, it turned out to be the end of modern civilization. As the ruler over the last city of the world, it is your responsibility to manage both the citizens and the infrastructure. What decisions will you make to ensure the survival of society? What will you do when you are pushed to your limits? What will become of mankind in this process?
In a completely frozen world, people are forced to develop steam-powered technologies to withstand the overwhelming cold. The head of the city has to take care of both the inhabitants and the technology to ensure survival. Tactical leadership skills are put to the test when morality and the core values of what we call an organised society are called in question. Optimization and resource management often come into conflict with empathy and considerate decisions. Managing the city and society takes most of the time, while the surroundings must also be explored to understand its history and current state.
Frostpunk is a city survival game, where warmth means life and every decision has its price. Survival is about hope and the will to live. Your ability to awaken and foster these two feelings in your inhabitants will determine your success. A society is a group of people who follow the same rules and share similar views. Establishing laws and customs is an important part of shaping your society. Will you allow child labour? How will you care for the sick and injured? Frostpunk puts the player's tactical skills and morale to the test. Explore the world around you to discover not only remnants of the past, but also possible means to secure the future of your people.
