Frostpunk devs teasing a new game with snow, oil, and blood – Rock Paper Shotgun

Tis the season to spaff your marketing spending plan on big statements with extravagant trailers and cars and trucks coming down from auditorium ceilings, however Frostpunk designers 11 Bit Studio are playing this one subtle. Today they put out a video entitled “A Tease Of Things To Come …” which sure appear like something Frostpunk-y, though they say absolutely nothing about what it is. They have formerly pointed out wanting to make a RPG spin-off, so perhaps this is that. Or a straight sequel. Or … dunno. They state they’ll actually announce the video game in August.

“The wasteland covered by snow’s quilt appears quiet, calm, asleep as if the wind was its lullaby,” the trailer’s description states. “Yet, the crimson scars mark the battleground for precious resources worth breaking up alliances over.”

They added on Twitter, “Beyond snow-covered tracks, with wasteland upon wasteland, we go hoping against hope.”

That’s about all they need to say, though they tag it #NewGame so hey, it’s their new video game. The trailer’s just a teaser for the actual announcement, beginning August 12th.

In 2019, 11 Bit marketing director Patryk Grzeszczuk did hint that they were considering making an RPG. He told GamesIndustry.biz that they ‘d built Frostpunk quite as a universe that might house future things.

Another beautiful night.”We wished to create a world, and after that fill that world with stories, with places, and after that develop connections in between them,” Grzeszczuk stated.”” [The DLC] is broadening on the universe, it is including brand-new story, and discussing some things that might be meant in the past. This is what truly drives us; the world of Frostpunk is growing, and we’re believing that, in the future we should consider, perhaps not a sequel, however a spin-off– an RPG embeded in the same universe.”

Perhaps this secret video game is an RPG? Or a sequel. Or … but surely it’s some kind of Frostpunk. Typically I ‘d say “This is trash, what a dreadful trailer, what a bad statement, what’s even the point of this” and erase the e-mail but, well, Frostpunk’s a decent video game.

The grim settlement-building management sim is set around a lone megafurnace as the world falls into a deadly global freeze, and it’ll take mindful planning and difficult choices for your nest to endure. Essentially, it’s Snowpiercer but not on a train. See our Frostpunk review and the RPS verdict for more on it.

Frostpunk is spinning off a parlor game too, made by Glass Cannon Unplugged after raising a tremendous EUR2.5 million (₤ 2.1 m) on Kickstarter.

Today they put out a video titled “A Tease Of Things To Come …” which sure appearances like something Frostpunk-y, though they say absolutely nothing about what it is.”The wasteland covered by snow’s quilt appears peaceful, calm, asleep as if the wind was its lullaby,” the trailer’s description says. That’s about all they have to state, though they tag it #NewGame so hey, it’s their brand-new game. Perhaps this secret game is an RPG? Or … however certainly it’s some type of Frostpunk.
