Frostpunk is free on the Epic Game Store for a week

Every Thursday the Epic Game Store reveals which game will be free for the coming week. And it is the very good city-building survival game, Frostpunk, that has been chosen for the beginning of June. You have until the 10th of June to get for free the game developed and published by 11 bits studios, the Polish studio behind the excellent This War of Mine.

If the latter was known for its pretty dark atmosphere, Frostpunk remains similar to its predecessor. Set in a post-apocalyptic steampunk world, the earth has been heavily impacted by a dramatic cold wave. In order to survive, remaining humans decided to build towns around huge coal generators.

You play as the leader of a London-based community. Your goal will be to manage the resources of the town (buildings, food, heat) and keep the happiness of the population above a certain level. All of this while resisting from several cold waves.
