Frostpunk is a popular PC game and the developer just updated it to support Xbox Live. Not only is 11 bit studios using the Universal Windows Platform, but it also features Xbox Achievements and Xbox Live cloud saves.
Usually developers choose to forgo releasing their games on the Windows Store so Frostpunk is a welcome addition. The fact that it can increase my Gamerscore is reason enough to purchase it from the Microsoft Store. Hopefully Microsoft will make putting games on its online store more appealing in the future so that more titles can get Xbox Live integration.
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 infrastructure 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 the outside world is necessary to understand its history and present state.
Frostpunk is currently available on PC for $30 through the Microsoft Store and other retailers. It's a great experience so be sure to check it out if you like strategy games.
