Frostpunk is the next game from the makers of This War of Mine

The big chill

This announcement trailer for Frostpunk is more mood-setting than anything else, but knowing that 11 Bit Studios (This War of Mine, Anomaly) is behind it, I'm inherently interested.

The 2017 game takes place in a frozen-over world in which survivors have built steam-powered technology to fend off the intense cold. "Society in its current form becomes ineffective and it has to change in order to survive. What does this change mean? What is culture when morality stands in the way of existence? Think about how survival may, in the end, leave us different beings. Whether worse, better, stronger, weaker or, last but not least, more or less humane – that is debatable."

According to creative director Michal Drozdowski, "This is a deeply serious game created for a mature gamer. Looking back at This War of Mine, we're pushing boundaries even further, but we're not pointing at reality in the same fashion. We're putting human nature under a microscope to ask about what happens when people need to stay alive."

That whole premise certainly sounds like an 11 Bit project. "More info soon," the studio promises.
