About the Game

Frozen Hearth is a Real-Time Strategy game, blended with exciting RPG features to create a new experience for lovers of RTS games. Set in our own unique, Dark-Fantasy world-setting, you can play alone, or co-operatively with a friend, through an epic and brutal campaign. Taking on the role of a powerful Avatar of the heroic, individualistic Danaan; you will try to save them from certain extinction at the hands of an immense horde of ravenous ice monsters – known as the Shangur –driven ever forward by an unstoppable wave of moving ice and snow that consumes everything it shrouds.

Multiplayer

Once you’ve mastered the many Skills, Spells, Structures, Units, and tactics in the campaign, you can test your skills against your friends in our wide selection of Player-vs-Player gametypes. Our Multiplayer game and map-types offer both well-loved favourites, and some new surprises of our own! Or of course, if you’re feeling confident, just jump right into the PvP action!

  • Traditional, Squad-based RTS core, with a unique and action-packed mix of RPG features
  • Co-Operative Campaign; Two players can play through the campaign over 20 maps, with hours and hours of play
  • Multi-player battles with many unique and well-known play modes
  • Play as either the warlike Danaan, or the bloodthirsty Shangur in multiplayer skirmishes and PvP
  • Heroic characters with skill-based character progression, powerful spells, and many hero items
  • Choose from and battle with 11 different base unit types for both the Danaan and the Shangur; infantry, cavalry, archers, spell-casters and more, many with special abilities and spells of their own

Definate case of buys remorse here.. These guys need to either update & fix , do some work on this game or refund everybody for clearing trolling them and ripping them off! I read a developrs comment"we are finished developing this for the year" are you kidding? this game lacks really basic fucntions such as noway to change the graphics settings out of its native setting (wich is terrible btw),rpg elemnets are really boring and very few(minimal lvl/skill tree/gear/upgrades),this game is almost nothing like dow save for exception of point cap,( and even that's terribly done) as prievious posters have stated everytime you click on mini map to move the game will load textures!! What? The? FXXk?? there is no muylti player and even when you do have a willing firend who was unlucky enough to buy this "game" the co-op or multi will not work,both our rigs are fine our connections are fine evey other high end game works nps,but this is just a clunky horrible mess,the artwrok ,design is not soo bad the tehem is really cool the scale of uits verus buildings looks really bad!!!,the fact everythig you build is all stuck in one building and one building only sucks! it is like making a big pizza building and adding spices to the individual slices aka( resource/upgrade buildings) wich are all attched at the centrla hub building i liked it for an hour or so ,and belive i supoort heaps of green lit games and indy stuff and yeha i know how hard it is blah blah,but sorry no excuse it is obvious the ddes who made this clearly love the genre and know what they are into. wich makes me even more mad they scammed so many die hard fans with a ♥♥♥♥ poor game ,terribly shoddy mechanics,a delibertly convulted ,confusing,broken multi player set up why??? its on steam ffs! should be .. click play search friends or forum (of your game rules and is pop) bam play game noneof tis muck about here wait 20 mins ,do this try that .. itsnot bloody hamachi! i mean sure i only paid 20 bucks or whatever.. it is beside the point if i walk in to a store and steal a 20 doallr cd thats still theft and i cna be charged and probaly fined or worse go to jail i will never ever argue or give a person grief for dling torrented games ever again this is the final straw as much as i like to buy my games legit(preferably on sale) i can totally understand why people refuse to bother with a lot of new games legit as developers have this attitude of grab cash run.. if this game updates and is miraculously fixed in the next 2-3 months and i can actually play to give a better review belive i will do so .. until thne avoid this game like the plauge! it is the worst

First of all i got this game for free. I then checked the price on steam and i thought this is worth a decent amount of money must be pretty good. Then i read the reviews, reading that the game is complete trash i thought i can give it chance it can't be that bad. Then i played the game... and all those reviews that said bad things were 100% trash. I highly don't recommend this game is garbage. I couldn't even finish the first mission it was so bad.

I thought a game that had initial price of 23.99 would be somewhat polished so I jumped on the sale. I got my buddy to get a free version of the game also. We thought we are going to have a good time. Oh were we wrong. The journey was very a painfull one and full of sorrows. It started with us having no freaking clue wtf was going on during the tutorial. The so called campaign coop tutorial consisted of putting us on the opposite parts of the map and making us beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of each other.
That was fine whatever, eventhough we desynced multiple times. During the second level the desync issue became even worse. We were able to get a couple source nodes before the enemies attacked. Oh the AI pathing was horrendous, I barely managed to get back to my base because AI kept getting stuck inside trees and taking the stupidest routes possible. Well I got home and defended the first wave of the enemies. Then my game crashed to desktop.
My friend kept going forward while my hero stood there without any control at all. I was unable to rejoin the game because it said the current lobby had 5/4 people. After another failed attempt to join it said the lobby was at 6/4. I kept saying wtf is going on. When I was finally able to join the lobby my friend has failed the mission because he was unable to control my hero. Yea this was the best and the worst experience I have had with an indie game. We have played game called Love by Eskil Steenberg and that says a lot. So overall this was a giant waste of time, bandwidth and harddrive space. Save yourself and fly you fools.

My friend also has this to say. "Your game sucks. (period) All of the default hotkeys are completely wrong. There's a game called dota 2. You should play that for a little bit to see how to make control interfaces and hotkeys."

Sarcasm is hard.

Sluggish controlls, camera is too close to action, game doesnt run stable at all, when you change position on minimap it loads textures; I've never seen that in an RTS.

Couldnt find any online games, either noone is playing it or I have to open a port. (What year is this?)

I can't use hotkeys for spells of the hero when he is in a group with normal units, I have to put the hero in his own group which doesn't really work because the group system is bugged, sometimes I can select groups, sometimes not.

It's pretty hard to disgintish units in battle because it gets cluttered up and they just randomly swing around.

The missions I played were so godawfully boring, having to defend from enemy troops which are no threat at all for 15 minutes, couldve gone afk at that point and it wouldn't have made a difference.

All in all this game feels like it should've come out 2001.
