From the team:
The makers of Frozen Flame are proud to share these awards with their players and communities, who have been an integral part of the game’s development process. Dreamside Interactive and Ravenage have been listening closely to the creative and practical feedback from players over the years of development, influencing the core of Frozen Flame’s identity.
In light of the feedback gained, some of the major changes to the game included allowing players to build outside of shelters (though that is not without consequences), pick up crafted items without dismantling them, and fast travel to alleviate some of the frustrations that exist in current games within the same open-world survival sphere. Frozen Flame seeks to remove some of the more tedious elements to the genre, with a focus on streamlined, enjoyable gameplay that utilizes environmental obstacles to encourage exploration, an important element of RPG and adventure genres that add to the player’s sense of wonder and discovery exciting visuals and bright, welcoming colour palettes.
On that note, the team is immensely proud and grateful for the recognition of its creative elements. By utilizing a distinct visual style per realm inhabited by a unique plethora of villains, environments all inspired by mythological legend and classic fairy tales plus some procedural generation, Frozen Flame aims to make every experience a personalized adventure for added replay value and immersion. The bright, bold, and fantasy-inspired designs are not often seen in survival titles and bring a lighthearted affinity to the array of characters; friend, foe, fauna and flora alike.Frozen Flame Team
