According to Jakub Stokalski, Frostpunk 2 Co-Director:
Jakub added:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“What players should expect is a wide universe of choices, freedom to shape the society and the city however they see fit – and reap the consequences. Frostpunk 2 builds on the conflicts of its predecessor – survival vs human values, life vs the arctic frost. But most importantly, it adds a new layer that is present in many aspects of the game – be it politics, be it society, be it technological progress – the conflict between humans and their nature.”[/testimonials]
