Over the past few months, Battletech and Frostpunk have caught the eyes of gamers around the world. Both of the titles are strategy experiences which offer complex gameplay mechanics with numerous creative twists.
Today, both Battletech and Frostpunk launched on PC. Battletech starts at $39.99 and Frostpunk costs $29.99.
Battletech takes place in the year 3025 as the galaxy is trapped in a cycle of perpetual war. Turn-based battles are fought by noble houses with enormous, mechanized combat vehicles called BattleMechs. From a starfaring base of operations, the player commands a mercenary outfit of mechs and the MechWarriors who pilot them, struggling to stay afloat as they fight in a brutal interstellar civil war.

Frostpunk is a city-building, survival and strategy experience. In a frozen world, people develop steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. The city ruler has to manage both the inhabitants and the infrastracture the citizens live in. Leaders face challenges, frequently questioning morality and the basic foundation of what we consider an organized society. Here optimization and resource management often clash with empathy and thoughtful decision-making. While city and society management consume most of the ruler's time, at some point exploration of outside world is necessary to understand its history and present state.

I bought Battletech but it's filled with so many bugs. I don't want to say unplayable but it needs a few more months of polish it seems.
