"(...) this is a game about finding reasons to survive rather than just the means to go on living."
- Adam Smith, Rock, Paper, Shotgun
"In a steampunk ice age, the only thing that can be crueler than the bitter cold are the decisions you have to make to keep your people alive."
- Stephanie Chan, VentureBeat
"(...) decisions push your morality to its limits for the sake of productivity, which could make for an captivating, draining adventure when the game releases later this year."
- Suriel Vazquez, Game Informer
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 infrastracture the citizens live in. Leader’s tactical skills face challenges, frequently questioning morality and the basic foundation of what we consider an organized society. Here optimization and resource management often clash with empathy and thoughtful decision-making. While city and society management consume most of the ruler’s time, at some point exploration of outside world is necessary to understand its history and present state.
What decisions will you make so the society can survive? What will you do when pushed to the limits? And...
...who will you become in the process?
Frostpunk is a city-survival game where heat means life and every decision comes with a cost.
Survival is about hope and will to live. Your ability to spark and maintain these two in your people will be a determinant factor for success.
Society is a group of people abiding the same rules and sharing similar beliefs. Establishing laws and customs will be a crucial factor shaping your society.
Will you allow child-labour? How will you treat the sick and wounded? Frostpunk challenges a player’s tactical skills, while questioning one’s morality.
The world covers not only bits of the past but also the potential means to secure the future of your people.

We ask the tough questions here at RPS. We re like Jeremy Paxman but in a very long bear costume. We once asked 15 developers what they d do if they were stuck in a room with a clone of themselves. This is important stuff. Today, we ask another question: What would you gift the games industry for ...
“And since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow” is a tad more grim in a post-apocalyptic world where everything we knew is frozen over and everyone we know may well freeze to death, but Frostpunk has still made space for Christmas. A little festivity can b...
