Frostpunk official artwork of the last city on Earth

Frostpunk is a newly released and survival-focused city building game that will have you ensure the last city on Earth remains standing amidst the frozen wasteland. In order to do so you will need to create interconnected compounds with the help of steam-powered technology, make what appears to be difficult moral choices with no black and white answers, as well as explore the snow-swept wilderness in search of other survivors and valuable resources.

If you're wondering what all of this might look like, allow me to share with you two of the most recent trailers. The first one is a cinematic trailer that should give you a good idea of what to expect in terms of atmosphere and lore, while the second one offers a closer look at the gameplay itself. Have a gander:

I haven't played it myself so take the following with a few grains of salt, but it would appear that Frostpunk is a pretty darn good game with one major flaw - there is almost no replayability. From what I can figure out the whole thing takes around 10 hours to finish, so make sure to take that into account before you spring for your wallet. Personally, I actually prefer short games these days since my free time is limited, but the lack of replay value is still worth mentioning since it is a city building game after all.

You can learn more about Frostpunk, or just grab yourself a copy, by heading over to either the official website or Steam. Have fun!
