Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
11 bit Studios (This War of Mine) has finally announced its next game called Frostpunk. According to the most recent reports, this might as well be the biggest game the company has ever produced.
There’s very little that we know about this title. Frostpunk is a game about humans surviving on a frozen world. To do so, humanity started using steam-powered technology. Technically it does sound a lot like This War of Mine but with a different setting. You’ll have to manage resources, plan your actions and quickly find ways to solve problems.
Developers also mention a “distinctive visual style“. There’s a nice CGI-teaser to illustrate the title, but no screenshots.
This is a deeply serious game created for a mature gamer. Looking back at This War of Mine, we’re pushing boundaries even further, but we’re not pointing at reality in the same fashion. We’re putting human nature under a microscope to ask about what happens when people need to stay alive.
Frostpunk will be released for PC somewhere in Q2 2017.
