Epic seems to enjoy being inscrutable, as next week's new giveaway is once again listed as a mystery game. Here are some frosty Frostpunk details:
Frostpunk, the newest title from the creators of This War of Mine, is a society survival game where heat means life and every decision comes at a price.

Depends if you like enslaving children and working them to death.
The only thing kids need more of is beatings and gruel!

eh, this is one of those games you have to play with a guide, to figure out how to play it. heavy time investment to fully enjoy it. people really love the world building aspect, but the difficulty is not linear, you get periodic extinction level events and you have to know what you are doing to not get wiped.

Is that a trick question?

I almost bought this after listening to the review on 3 Moves Ahead. My backlog is epic, so I held off. That paid off.

I would absolutely recommend this game. The soundtrack is amazing and if you like bleak, post-apocalyptic settings, this will be right up your alley.

Thanks! I pick up all of these free games, and I never play any of them. Good to know I should!

I got it on GoG when it was on sale. I started three campaigns; the first was a starter which it just throws you right in and I failed miserably, the second I did a little better and failed miserably, and the third got a few steps further along then failed miserably.

It's very depressing to play. It doesn't seem like any decision you make comes with any positive results, just the least worst decision. The difficulty increases quickly through the campaign and even though it forces you to spin a lot of plates at once right off the bat, I could never seem to keep up with the demands. I probably didn't play it right or it just wasn't for me.

I may try again when the sun finally decides to come out from behind clouds after the 10th straight day of rain or it just may force me into a corner, curled up, and sobbing.

EGS is slowly releasing everything I've bought on GoG for free.

This game is very depressing. It's well done of course, but I have yet to finish it; people struggling just to live is a bit too serious for my builder-strategy mindset.

It's a pretty good, if fairly unforgiving, city management game. So if that sounds like it's your type of game, it's a good one...and at free, you have nothing to really lose.
