Merge Games, a privately-owned video game publisher, has announced that it has formed a partnership with award-winning developer and a publisher, 11 bit studios. The deal sees Merge Games publishing society-survival game, Frostpunk, at retail on PC.
Merge Games’ Managing Director, Luke Keighran, remarked, “Frostpunk is going to be a very special title on PC, one that gamers will be clamouring to have in their collections. We are excited to have partnered with 11 bit studios, working with them is a delight.”
11 bit studios’ Business Development Manager, Piotr Bajraszewski, added, “Fans are crying out for physical editions of these games. Merge Games was the ideal partner to help us get this done! We’re super excited for people to have the option to buy them a retail box… we’re looking forward to including them in our personal collections too!”
Frostpunk is set for a PC retail release in March 2018.
Frostpunk is the first game of society survival. In an ultimately 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.
