Frozenheim is an expanded game combining RTS and city builder elements. The game was developed by an independent studio Paranoid Interactive and published by Hyperstrange.

Plot

Frozenheim takes us on a journey to the Viking world. During the game we play the leader of the clan, who was exiled from his native lands. Searching for a place where the protagonist and his followers could settle down ended before the onset of winter. Although the protagonist and his companions will have to work hard and face various dangers, the result of their efforts will be the transformation of the fragment of Midgard they discovered into their new home. Provided, of course, that they are up to the challenge.

Mechanics

In Frozenheim we observe the action from the top-down view. Our primary task in the game is to expand the Viking settlement. We need various resources to do that; while getting wood in the frosty north is not a big problem, getting other resources requires expeditions. In this way, we acquire materials that allow us to construct new buildings and improve the existing ones, among which we can find both objects connected with production and improving the lives of our Vikings, as well as sacred buildings or military constructions. As we progress, we gain access to various development trees, on which we discover new buildings and technologies.

Before we start to rule these lands for good, it is worth taking care of the defence of your settlement in advance, surrounding it with palisades and building watchtowers. Our actions will eventually attract the attention of other inhabitants of the territory, who do not have to look at them with a favorable eye. Then there is nothing left to do but to field the largest and most diverse army possible and enter the war. Dynamic battles are full of tactics, so the key to success is to skilfully exploit the strengths of each type of unit under your command.

Of course, our people will not build and fight for us if we do not take care of their other needs. So we have to provide them housing, as well as cultivate the land, organize hunts or even fishing to obtain food for them. Things are complicated by the fact that there are changing seasons in the game; while spring and summer are the time of bloom, in autumn and winter we have to focus mainly on survival.
