This is a YouTube playlist featuring all of the episodes of my Frostpunk gameplay. This is a complete run-through of the main campaign. I tried all of the other campaigns (except The Last Autumn) and I didn’t quite like them as much. However, the main campaign is exceptional.
Has anyone played the board game?
Frostpunk is a city-building survival game developed and published by 11 bit studios. Players take on the role of a leader in an alternate-history late 19th century, in which they must build and maintain a city during a worldwide volcanic winter, managing resources, making choices on how to survive, and exploring the area outside their city for survivors, resources, or other useful items. Frostpunk features several scenarios to undertake, each with its own stories and different challenges.
The game was initially released for Microsoft Windows in April 2018, but was later made available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in October 2019. Frostpunk received generally positive reviews upon release and sold over 1.4 million copies within a year of its release.
As I See It
Frostpunk is a tough game both strategically and mentally. The strategy took me a couple of tries to get down. Even though I manage to make my way through the main campaign, I struggle with some of the choices. Some of the choices are downright mentally taxing. I don’t want to spoil anything. Just watch my gameplay or play the game yourself. You’ll see what I mean.
With that said, I love Frostpunk. The game provides a fair challenge albeit a bit anxiety-inducing at times. There are times when you won’t see your choices come to fruition until later on. If you make a wrong choice, you will slap yourself and wonder why you made that choice. That’s part of the fun though. Go back and try again. It’s worth it.
