Remember that Frostpunk board game which hit Kickstarter? Well, it was funded in just 54 minutes.

The Kickstarter is now in the stretch goals phase. However, regarding the funding, Jakub Wi?niewski, CEO of Glass Cannon Unplugged, provided the following in the accompanying press release,

“In our wildest dreams we didn’t think that it would happen that fast! Frostpunk is a well-known IP, and we can guarantee that the unplugged adaptation will live up to its name with gameplay focused on strategic decisions and grim narration. For us, the campaign launch is just the beginning of the road, but we couldn’t be happier doing it while knowing we produce this game for such an amazing community. From the deepest depths of our hearts - thank you for such a wonderful reception of our game”.

If you were unfamiliar with the features of the board game, it promises different player roles to ease the learning curve which allows newcomers to enjoy the game. Innovative heating and generator cube tower mechanics with a custom-designed system of cube-catching and risk management are also introduced.

Narrative-driven Dusk card mechanics steer the society using Law and Technology and bear the consequences of in-game decisions. Additionally, a companion app that allows for shared playthrough between distant players was also touched on.
