Frostpunk unleashes terrifyingly helpful automatons upon populace

February 04, 2018 1 min read

It's certainly been a long time since we've heard from the people at 11 bit studios regarding Frostpunk. The last time I delved into their world, I went in with aspirations of destruction - and found myself almost instantly protective of my freezing little citizens. Only reluctantly did I harden my heart and enact policies that would let them survive the terrible cold and rampant starvation, even as I threw their bodies into a big hole in the ground and watered down their soup. Oh, and technically, I lost the demo too. So there was that.

Well, the silence has been broken, both to give us some info about the business side of the game, and to introduce us to the incredibly-helpful-and-not-at-all-threatening Automatons, giant helper robots that you can build to assist your populace.

I'm not sure what it says about a game - or its developers - that something meant to help the player instantly made me suspicious.
