Frostpunk has quite a fandom here at RPS. Even if the game hadn’t been good, we would still have given it coverage because we enjoy going Full Mr. Freeze with headlines like “Frostpunk ventures out into the cold” and my personal favorite “There’s snow hope in this new Frostpunk trailer” which I’m borderline mad about. Look, I’d never do anything like that in my headlines. Luckily, we don’t have to keep talking about wordplay, because Frostpunk’s tremendous sales out of the gate mean post-release content isn’t stuck in a freeze.

Please don’t go.

Hi there!

Good news, everyone!

If you own This War of Mine on Steam you can get Frostpunk - our brand new society survival game - with a 10% discount!

The offer stands until May 1st, 2018.

What is Frostpunk?
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?

Hi there, everyone!

We just uploaded a new This War of Mine update on Steam! It mostly fixes some smaller issues - but you will probably be happy to hear that we've managed to patch that annoying scenario issue connected to the Father's Promise DLC!

Here's the full list of fixes:
  • Korean translations are fixed - we had some misleading/incorrect Korean lines in game - it's fixed now!
  • Animation fixes for Japanese, Chinese and Korean versions of the game - there were some smaller animation glitches here and there for these language versions; now everything should be back to normal!
  • Father's Promise DLC doesn't unlock the additional scenarios anymore - you have to play the main campaing to unlock them - so it's back to normal!
  • Some minor stability tweaks and fixes
Have a good one!
This War of Mine

With the icy survival game Frostpunk now just a few weeks away from release, developer 11 Bit Studios is letting anyone play its previous life-is-hell simulator This War of Mine for free on Steam until April 8. 

This War of Mine is also a survival game, but with more of a real-world bent, played as a civilian struggling to survive in a besieged city shattered by war. Constant danger and a shortage of food, water, and medicine force life-and-death choices at every turn, and there's no Paragon path to victory. "During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival," the Steam listing states. "The sooner you realize that, the better."

Despite the grim subject matter, This War of Mine has become a hit, recently surpassing 2.5 million copies sold on Steam. "This accomplishment has reaffirmed ours philosophy on creating mature, thought-provoking games," 11 Bit said. "Additionally, we continue to support gaming's community mission of raising funds for the War Child children’s charity by the sale of DLC content dedicated to that sole purpose." 

If you want to keep playing after this weekend, This War of Mine is also on sale for 70 percent off until April 9 (one day after after the end of the free weekend), dropping it to $6/£4.50/€6, while the War Child-supporting DLC The Little Ones is on for half price.

This War of Mine - (Brendan Caldwell)


Hello from the Game Developer s Conference, where every building comes with a blizzard-spewing air conditioner. I ve just been to see Frostpunk, the societal survival game set in a pseudo-Victorian hellwinter, from the developers of This War of Mine. The frosty management game will support modding, they say, and there are plans for additional scenarios . That means both smaller, free updates and bigger packs of paid DLC. Although mod support probably won t be from day one . And the developers haven t decided what these later scenarios will contain. (more…)
