11 Bit Studios, the developer of This War of Mine, have released an intriguing teaser trailer for a new project they’re working on called, Frostpunk.
The trailer doesn’t show off any gameplay for the new title, but the official website for the game has dropped a few details, and the premise for the game sounds quite interesting. Take a look:
In a completely frozen world, people develop steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. Society in its current form becomes ineffective and it has to change in order to survive.
What does this change mean? What is culture when morality stands in the way of existence? Think about how survival may, in the end, leave us different beings. Whether worse, better, stronger, weaker or, last but not least, more or less humane – that is debatable.
Check out the teaser trailer below and let us know what you think of it in the comments section. Do you think Frostpunk will play out a lot like This War of Mine, or do you think 11 Bit is taking this game in a different direction?
Frostpunk is due out in 2017. No platforms have been revealed yet.
