Frostpunk Released

Steam News announces the release of Frostpunk, a chill survival strategy game for Windows from 11 bit studios. This does not carry a typical launch discount, but they are offering a 10% loyalty discount for those who already own This War of Mine. You can find details on the launch in this post, where they list day one fixes, and offer this official launch trailer with a look at the game's Snowpiercer vibe. Here's the game's description:

Frostpunk is a brand-new title from the creators of This War of Mine. It’s a society survival game that asks what people are capable of when pushed to the brink of extinction. In an entirely frozen world, people develop steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. The city’s ruler has to manage both the citizens and the infrastructure they live in. The leader’s tactical skills face challenges that will frequently question morality and the basic foundations of what we consider organized society. Optimization and resource management often clash with empathy and thoughtful decision-making. While city and society management will consume most of the ruler’s time, at some point exploration of the outside world is necessary to understand its history and present state.

What decisions will you make to ensure the survival of your society? What will you do when pushed to the limit? And...

...who will you become in the process?

It looks good, and gets very good reviews, but according to several reviews it's just constantly a major downer mentally. Always people dying, kids dying, no hope, etc. Very gloomy.

Not sure I need that right now.

Tbh, kids should be the first to go. Nobody likes kids, let's just be straight up. XD

Hey, since it's just a 45 days campaign anyway, who needs kids? They don't do anything. They'll never grow up into workers. :p

But it'd be nice if the game didn't try to make you feel bad about it all the time. Hehe.

You say that like people should know who they are. Those names mean nothing to me.

YouTube has a search feature. Use it and educate yourself.

If you have no life that's your problem. The rest of us generally consider our time too valuable to be wasting it finding and listening to what Youtube "celebrities" think about anything. Ergo, their names mean nothing to people with a life.

Let's Play's are about seeing the game in action, not the youtuber. I don't generally care about YouTube personalities either. Really if you just search the game name you'll probably find a bunch of vids showing the gameplay. Hell, half the time I don't even know the name of the streamer nor care to; I'm just there to see the gameplay.

That's exactly my point. Yeah, we all know what a Let's Play is. We really don't care about who's doing it so name dropping doesn't mean squat.

On a very, very tangential note Battletech was released today. Surprised Blue hasn't picked up on it.

I bought it, so far a few missions in the campaign. Gotta say first impressions so fare are fucking, awesome!

*goes back to playing Battletech*
I'm sure it's going to make the afternoon post.

Yeah. That reminds me of that Seinfeld episode on exclamation marks.

Elaine and exclamation points!

Does anyone know how to turn off that Live Stream crap on their sales page?

I know how to turn it off in our Steam UI, but I'm on Firefox atm and I usually don't log in Steam with browsers.

I'm guessing you're annoyed by a lot of things in life. Because this is something so small and used so often in every media.

Nice trailer but it does not tell me much about gameplay, I'm curious so I'll dig a bit more and find out.

Quill18 and ChristopherOdd have Let's Play videos on YouTube.

Looks pretty linear not a lot of replayability

That's my concern too.
