What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Frozen State is still very early in development. Despite this fact, many core features are already in place and the game is playable as it is, though it’s still evolving and improving. It means many things can change over the course of development. For that reason, we would like to take you with us on this journey and make those changes and improvements based in part on your feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have a certain number of features and content we want to implement, but because we also would like to have deep involvement from the community, it is hard at the moment to set any definite deadlines or time frames. However, we plan to release regular, fortnightly updates.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have a considerably larger world to explore, more content, NPCs and quests.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is a pure sandbox experience, it doesn't have any goals or objectives, except surviving as long as you can. The game has 27 locations, covering just over one three kilometres combined, dynamic weather, randomly generated interiors, crafting and stealth elements.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will be gradually growing over time as we reach important milestones. The fully completed game will cost around 20$.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We'd like to have a deep community involvement in the development of Frozen State. If you have interesting ideas or suggestions, please share them with us on the Frozen State Forum.”

Sneak peek at new combat system



Hi there,

I know, it's been rather quiet around here, but we've been  busy reworking the new character controller and adding more animations. As you may know the game development is all about iterations. We'd love to make things faster, but very often, in order to find the most optimal solution one must make a dozen of bad ones. So, to fix the problem with our combat system, we decided to take some time and experiment to see what can be done. Actually since the last update we've made around three different controllers and all went to the rubbish bin.

This is the first glimpse on the new unarmed combat system, the one that we really like. There still won't be a blocking system, but your character will be able to jump back to dodge the enemies' blows.

Thank you,

Happy New Year!

Hi all!

Hope you all have had great time during last week)

Unfortunately, I've caught a flu and I cannot spend much time in front of the monitor right now((( I'm writing it because there are new people on the forum and they have questions about the game, the old community members are doing the great job answering them. Thanks for the help guys!

Once I get better, I'll jump straight in and will answer every question)

Thank you and Happy New Year!

About This Game

Frozen State is a game about the adversities faced whilst existing and surviving in a dying Siberian city, Duga 40.

The experimental city has been infested by an extraterrestrial parasite that has obliterated the native population. Once infected, the parasite causes its victims to become vicious alien hybrids…

However, the grotesquely disfigured creatures are not the only menace that threatens the surviving citizens – hunger, and the bitter Siberian cold, will force them to behave in a Machiavellian fashion with one another

Frozen State is still very early in its development. Some features have not yet been implemented or may not work properly. However, we are continually working to improve Frozen State and eagerly anticipate your feedback and suggestions.

Planned Features:
• Three main characters - each with their own different play style.
• Diverse enemies
• Open world - the city consists of separate locations sewn together in random order with every new session.
• Dynamic weather conditions
• Randomly generated building interiors
• Stealth
• Crafting
• Transport
• Basic needs (hunger, thirst, sleep, etc)

Early Access Review
There are a whole lot of early-access survival games out there but this one seemed appealing to me. The atmosphere makes me feel like I'm in The Thing (1982), which is one of my favorite horror movie. At first it was quite challenging to survive in the cold, harsh winter of Siberia. From hunger to thirst, I was searching for better weapons, armor, and loot while avoid/sneaking by mutants(can get pretty tense). Weapon ammo is scarce in the beginning so avoiding enemies is probably best. Had to move out of my safe house so I can travel farther into the randomly-generated, open-world map without wasting any more resources. From there, it wasn't as hard as before but still alot to do and explore. Crafting is very useful too. I can build my own wooden cabin with torches all around and a workbench to craft even more stuff. Now including Permadeath, animals are introduced to hunt, so I'm definitely keeping an eye out for more updates.

Early Access Review
Very atmospheric and well thought out. With more updates and polish this could well be one of the best survival games I've ever played. Devs, please know that we support you on this 100%.

I've also noticed that this game could be played pretty nicely on mobile platforms if ported right. So consider that an option as well.

Absolutely worth bying it. Nicely playable even in alpha-version.
Just spend some time to adopt interface and craft-system.

Early Access Review
This game is worth the $10 I paid for it. Its challenging, hack and slash, crafting, exploration, survival, ET's, loot,RPG. I mean, what more could u ask for in a $10 game? Took me a few mintues to get used to the controls involving rotating the camera but after i got past that its been great. I highly recommend this game 10/10

Early Access Review
I really like the feel of this game the creepy and depressing setting coupled with little to no human interaction is really well done. It makes the whole you gotta survive on your own mentality surface.

+ Hack and slash combat
+ Being able to build/craft everything you need to survive.
+/- Choose from 3 playable characters, I would have preferred creating my own character but that's just me.

So far its a great game, and I'll make sure to keep this review updated as I get more play time into it.
