This War of Mine is a stark survival administration sim set in a warzone. Frostpunk is a science fiction metropolis builder. And but: we are able to see strains of continuity right here.
This War of Mine developer 11 bit Studios has launched a brand new trailer for its subsequent undertaking, a metropolis builder referred to as Frostpunk first introduced in August 2016. (You would possibly keep in mind The Fall, its first trailer.)
Set in an excessive local weather, Frostpunk has gamers carving out dwelling area from stable ice, changing it to steam to energy their endeavours.
If that appears a far cry from 11 bit’s early work, we’re with you – however the indie group says Frostpunk will probably be all about making exhausting choices and dwelling with the consequence. You can in all probability see how that echoes themes of This War of Mine.
It’s attention-grabbing to see how 11 bit selected to current this in a cinematic trailer. Rather than present a participant making selections in a menu after which scanning ahead to point out the impression, which hardly ever works properly, we get the identical state of affairs enjoying out on a smaller scale. The climber thinks about dropping his good friend to save lots of himself, however doesn’t do it quick sufficient, and so they each die. That’s a neat illustration.
So fairly grim stuff once more there, however this time on a societal degree reasonably than a private one, as gamers craft a metropolis reasonably than handle a small group. In line with this transformation, 11 bit has 60 individuals on board Frostpunk versus the 12 who made This War of Mine.
Look for Frostpunk on PC within the second half of the 12 months.
