    Spotted this back in September when the demo was handed out. Search for Marbozir, he did a few decent episodes on his channel. No release date yet I assume?

    No release date. Was going to be end of last year, but they decided to push back the release date to deal with internationalisation.

    Just had an email from 11bit studios - the creators of Frostpunk. They confirmed that there will be multiple pages in the Book of Laws. So replayability should be decent. In all the youtube playthroughs you only see one page.

    Its kinda rough on the other city building games that don't have laws. I find them shallow now when I try to play them :/

    Wow this looks pretty sweet and quite intriguing. Might grab this and enjoy a change from the FPS scene.

    A new replay done by one of the 11bit folks. He uses a new build of the game that shows some nice improvements in the UI and also briefly the entire tech tree.

    This War of Mine from 11bit (makers of Frostpunk) is now free on steam - http://store.steampowered.com/app/282070/This_War_of_Mine/

    Edit: this game is pure dope... already bought it (currently 70% off). Awesome art style. Great game!
