‘Frostpunk’ Review: Survival City-Building in a Winter Wasteland

It’s the end of the world, as we know it. In Frostpunk, the snow has consumed everything. Hundreds of Londoners set out to create a new city, built around a life-saving, coal-burning Generator. Managing the world’s last city, Frostpunk tests your ability to have your empathy pulled in multiple directions and stay frosty.

Witness the rise of the winnable city-builder. Much in the same vein as They Are Billions, Frostpunk tasks you with building a city to weather a timed calamity. In this case, you’ll weather the weather.

Frostpunk is essentially steampunk in a universe where the sun is dying. The planet is scorched. Daring friends to lick metal poles is strictly forbidden. You and your expedition will make a new home out of a resource-rich crater, braving nature’s icy wrath until the worst of the storm passes and you realise…

We built this city. We built this city on rock and coal.


A Frostpunk city nestled in a large crater

If Looks Could Chill

Frostpunk is a beautiful game. From the early moments of just a few tents around your Generator to the bustle of coal industry filling your cozy crater, it impresses graphically. Even the menus are pleasant to look at.

Workers will make tracks in the snow as they wander out to build or gather. You can zoom right in and see what individual citizens are up to. Clicking on them will even reveal aspects of their grim, grey lives.

Your city itself will huddle around the generator for warmth, as Frostpunk’s clever city design sees buildings created outward from the center. The essential roads that connect and power your workplaces fit in between buildings, as do the mobile mini-generators. It’s all very clever.


Trails in the snow lead away from a Frostpunk city

Even as the architect of your radial rooftops, the similarly snow-covered shelters make it hard to tell if you’re clicking on one of the three different kinds of temple, or the four different kinds of medical centre. We sometimes clicked from white roof to white roof, unable to find our Cookhouse. But it’s a nice touch that you can tell how heated a building is by its crest of snow.

The further out from the Generator, the colder it gets of course. At first it feels unfair when the game dips you from a delightful -20C to -40C. For every 10 degrees Celsius the temperature plunges, you’ll need to research additional heat and insulation. Below a certain threshold, your workers can’t work, your engineers can’t engineer, and your doctors can’t doct.


A heatmap shows which buildings are warm and which are freezing

The combination of Generator power and range upgrades, mini satellite generator hubs, and individual workplace coal burners will tickle the optimisation centre of your brain. It’s not just about resource parity, it’s about stockpiling for the hard times.

Trust us. You’ll be wishing for -40C before the end.

Hope and Discontent

Here’s something different. In this new icey world, there are only so many productive hours in the day. Although the day/night cycle doesn’t affect the temperature in Frostpunk, night is when people often get sick, and you’ll have to plan for most buildings and workers functioning for 10 out of 24 hours.

The off hours are still relevant — cooldowns cool down, and automatons still work. But no one’s going to work through the night unless you force them to do so with laws.

It’s the end of the world, but these jokers are clocking off at 6pm. Bloody unions, amirite?


Automatons walk from the Generator to their workplace
Automatons can work through the cold nights

In addition to managing your coal, wood, and steel, you’ll have to manage your people’s mood. Represented by the Hope and Discontent bars at the screen’s bottom, this is the mechanical representation of empathy, preventing you from pushing workers until they drop in the snow.

Mix too much sawdust into their food rations and their ungrateful stomachs start to rumble. Treat a few people on the floor of a crowded Medical Post, and the whingers start to lose Hope.

For survivors of a winter wasteland, these people just can’t seem to chill.

Order and Faith

Like the air around them, your citizens are prone to radical extremes. Partway through the game, you’ll choose between extreme nationalism and blind zealotry to combat the cold.

The paths of Order and Faith are thematic opposites but similar in systems. Both use buildings with an area of effect to keep citizens in line. Both culminate in eliminating the Hope bar as you become unquestionably supreme. Nothing like a good public execution to take your mind off that mild frostbite.

Things get mighty grim towards the end, and it takes extreme measures to survive. Your citizens will likely banish or execute you before everyone dies. In Frostpunk, the only fail state is a failed state. Before the Hope bar reaches zero or the Discontent bar reaches full, it’s up to you to convince them that fortune favours the cold.



Frostpunk has a great understanding of what a moral choice should involve in an interactive narrative. It avoids Telltale’s “Kobayashi Maru” formula, a simple serving of two bad outcomes. Neither does it fall into the trap of offering story consequences without representing those results tangibly in gameplay.

Every decision is appropriately weighted against a thematically sensible in-game resource. Sometimes you’re weighing up Hope vs Discontent, or Discontent vs time, or skilled engineers vs coal, or scout exploration vs an increasingly sick population in need of heat. It’s all tied to something solid, in a way that makes sense, and in that way Frostpunk achieves its goal as an empathetic, story-driven city-builder.



Scouts, Events, and Sameyness

People are a valuable resource. A fragile one too, considering this resource can get sick. People don’t reproduce within the timeframe of this game, so adding to your numbers involves scouting the surrounding Frostland for survivors. If you’re short on workers, whether you force them through longer shift hours or introduce child labour is one of Frostpunk’s many tough calls.

They are however, from game to game, the same calls at the same times. Frostpunk is a city-builder, but also very much a crafted scenario with fixed points along the way. Each game will have the man who refuses an amputation. Each game will feature the troublesome rebels who want to pack up and go back to London.



As you explore the wider Frostland for resources and survivors, the map will be the same each game along with its events and rewards. You’ll know exactly where to go to get the automaton, and exactly where to set up the outpost sending you 800 coal per day.

There’s seemingly some post-decision randomness at work. The aforementioned unwilling amputee may later thank you for saving his life, or he may commit suicide. But often, you’ll know the script, fully aware of exactly how many volunteers will die when you send them to save the coal mines.

All of this means Frostpunk’s carefully crafted narrative comes at the cost of discovery. It’s absolutely worth replaying, but don’t expect anything new.

That’s a trade we’re happy to make in a game so utterly unique, and the developer has also said it’s planning a sandbox/endless mode.

Is Frostpunk Good?

Frostpunk is hard, but you’ll get the hang of it. And when you do, it’s waiting with some harder scenarios, and all-too-rare intelligent achievements for you to play again in challenging, interesting ways.

Just like 11 Bit Studios did with This War of Mine, it has brought a unique take to this genre with well-thought-out underlying systems. You won’t get the million hours that you would from Civilization or Sim City. But you will get something completely different, interesting, and memorable.

It seems odd to apply the word “fun” to a game so grim, but like life in extreme circumstances, Frostpunk finds a way.

Your 5-step survival guide to surviving threenagers

by

Joanna Venditti

posted in Parenting

Just when I thought we were out of the woods with the infant and toddler phases, I was smacked right across the cheek. Literally.

As I reached up to touch my burning skin and turned to see who, out of my four kids, was the offender, I heard a smash as a toy was flung across the room followed by shrieks and tears.

I am currently going through a brutal phase with my twins… the threenager phase, which is not that different from having a teenager.

Twin threenagers

Threenager: (Threen-ney-jer)
A 3-year-old, whose emotions are magnified, will wear what she pleases, refuse hair-brushing, wants to be in charge at all times and might resort to violence if necessary.

In the past, with my older kids, I saw glimpses of threenager-hood, but mostly looked forward to age 3 (and up) as the golden years. With age 3 comes language, comprehension, sleeping through the night, more independence, and no more diapers. But I have never experienced the magnitude of a full blown threenager… let alone two of them.

Half the time I don’t know if I should laugh, or cry until this phase passes. But one thing’s for sure, I need to survive it, and here’s how I have been doing that…

1. Don’t look your threenager in the eye. I probably hear myself saying “give your sisters space” about ten times a day to our big kids. I feel badly in a way, because all our 6 and 8-year-old wants to do is cuddle their adorable baby sisters. But those days are gone. Even eye contact these days seems to give our toddlers some unspoken permission to hit, cry, or start making some ridiculously unreasonable demands. We are giving our threenagers lots and lots of space these days.

2. Put your threenager to work. Nothing pleases a threenager more than power. In fact, I’m pretty sure that making a power play is a threenager’s number one goal. So, give them the upper hand in a way that works for you. When my twins refuse to stay in their beds at night, I give them jobs for the morning. One gets to spray and clean our kitchen table, and the other one gets to organize shoes and sweep our mudroom. Being assigned with these important jobs makes our threenagers feel important, and gives them independence and the control they’re after.

3. Your threenager needs more sleep. Or at least rest. Remember, any kind of sleep deprivation magnifies your threenager’s aggression and explosive emotions. Not unlike actual teenagers, I find our 3-year-olds suddenly need more rest. Some days they have gone back to long afternoon naps, and other days a bed on our couch with a movie is exactly what they need.

4. Keep your threenager on a routine. Last week we were away on vacation. Although my two big kids thrived in a lazy, exciting and unpredictable environment, our 3-year-olds crumbled. They were miserable almost every minute of our beautiful vacation. As soon as we arrived home, their daycare, bedtime, nap, and meal routines resumed. Their moods changed completely. If your threenager isn’t in daycare, try creating a predictable routine and stick to it. Knowing what’s next plays into a threenagers’ need for control and independence, which in turn makes them happier and more pleasant to be around.

5. Make sure your threenager’s belly is full. When our twins were 2 years old they only ever wanted snacks. Even at mealtime, they wanted everything in bite-sized, portable snack form. I fell into this habit and stopped preparing big meals for our twins. Not unlike teenagers, I have suddenly found our 3-year-olds have ravenous appetites, often bigger than their older siblings. I’ve started to prepare more protein-packed, bigger meals to satisfy their hunger, and keep them from getting hangry.

I know our 3-year-olds are going through a normal developmental phase, and it’s my job to love them, be patient, redirect them, and wait for this phase to pass, which I am happy to do. In the meantime, I will be sticking to my survival guide and avoiding eye contact at all costs.

Do you have a threenager in your house?

Overcoming Self-Deception Can Be Crucial for Survival

Is it a therapist’s job to make the client feel better or see reality more accurately? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Irene Yancher, Psychotherapist & TechCrunch, NPR contributor, Liv Pyschotherapy, on Quora:

Self-deception serves a purpose. It addresses underlying needs, but with potentially short and unsatisfying results. Anyone who has believed they can quell hunger with a bag of chips, instead of a real dinner, knows the feeling – you may be temporarily full, but you’re not satisfied.

Helping clients understand and fulfill their needs in an enduring, satisfying way of making self-deception unnecessary. Thus, seeing reality and feeling better typically go hand-in-hand. But until self-deception’s function is addressed, the belief that a therapist can help someone see reality may itself be an illusion.

In 1997, the Heaven’s Gate cult showed the world just how tenacious self-deception can be. Thirty-nine members of the cult committed suicide because they were convinced that a spaceship would take their souls to heaven. A few days before their suicides, cult members purchased a $ 3,600 telescope, only to return it with claims of device faultiness.

Why did cult members commit suicide even after being presented with actual evidence that should have, in theory, discredited their beliefs? To understand the concept, it’s important to comprehend the nature of self-deception and why it takes root.

Self-deception gets a bad rap, but some self-deception is healthy. A toddler who feels Teddy is real is meeting a need for comfort and is not suffering as a result. Repressing painful truths, like aging and death, can be an adaptive way to cope with an otherwise overwhelming reality. However, the more severe the deception, the higher the cost.

The Heaven’s Gate cult members likely suffered great emotional pain before they ever joined the cult. The cult’s appeal was its ability to fulfill some crucial needs. The exact type of need was probably different for each person – perhaps a sense of meaning or unconditional love. It’s tough to trade in this fulfillment, even if it’s temporary, false, and ultimately harmful, for a reality that feels bleak.

In psychotherapy, I often work with clients who distort reality somewhere between the two aforementioned extremes. A patient with an eating disorder, for instance, may be convinced she is overweight. This fabricated reality enables her to focus on something within her control (weight). If she feels that her body is the only thing over which she has any control, the belief that she is overweight is serving an important purpose.

Although one may be tempted to show this client a BMI chart to prove she’s thin, the evidence is unlikely to be effective. Assuming the disorder is not life-threatening, I could instead help the client develop agency in other parts of her life. As we work together to satisfy the patient’s underlying needs, the need to control her weight will likely diminish, along with the illusion of being overweight.

There are many ways to help a client see reality. Sometimes this is done by directly questioning the client’s constricted view (e.g., “is there any other possible reason your friend didn’t confide in you?”). Other times, it’s not feasible or practical to directly challenge a belief. In these cases, psychotherapists can help clients understand their underlying needs. Then, they can work together to replace self-deception with a more adaptive, fulfilling alternative that’s rooted in reality.

The Wild Wisdom of Weeds: 13 Essential Plants for Human Survival

The Wild Wisdom of Weeds: 13 Essential Plants for Human Survival


The Wild Wisdom of Weeds is the only book on foraging and edible weeds to focus on the thirteen weeds found all over the world, each of which represents a complete food source and extensive medical pharmacy and first-aid kit. More than just a field guide to wild edibles, it is a global plan for human survival.

When Katrina Blair was eleven she had a life-changing experience where wild plants spoke to her, beckoning her to become a champion of their cause. Since then she has spent months on end taking walkabouts in the wild, eating nothing but what she forages, and has become a wild-foods advocate, community activist, gardener, and chef, teaching and presenting internationally about foraging and the healthful lifestyle it promotes.

Katrina Blair’s philosophy in The Wild Wisdom of Weeds is sobering, realistic, and ultimately optimistic. If we can open our eyes to see the wisdom found in these weeds right under our noses, instead of trying to eradicate an “invasive,” we will achieve true food security. The Wild Wisdom of Weeds is about healing ourselves both in body and in spirit, in an age where technology, commodity agriculture, and processed foods dictate the terms of our intelligence. But if we can become familiar with these thirteen edible survival weeds found all over the world, we will never go hungry, and we will become closer to our own wild human instincts—all the while enjoying the freshest, wildest, and most nutritious food there is. For free!

The thirteen plants found growing in every region across the world are: dandelion, mallow, purslane, plantain, thistle, amaranth, dock, mustard, grass, chickweed, clover, lambsquarter, and knotweed. These special plants contribute to the regeneration of the earth while supporting the survival of our human species; they grow everywhere where human civilization exists, from the hottest deserts to the Arctic Circle, following the path of human disturbance. Indeed, the more humans disturb the earth and put our food supply at risk, the more these thirteen plants proliferate. It’s a survival plan for the ages.

Including over one hundred unique recipes, Katrina Blair’s book teaches us how to prepare these wild plants from root to seed in soups, salads, slaws, crackers, pestos, seed breads, and seed butters; cereals, green powders, sauerkrauts, smoothies, and milks; first-aid concoctions such as tinctures, teas, salves, and soothers; self-care/beauty products including shampoo, mouthwash, toothpaste (and brush), face masks; and a lot more. Whether readers are based at home or traveling, this book aims to empower individuals to maintain a state of optimal health with minimal cost and effort.

The Lilaguide: Baby-Friendly Miami & FT Lauderdale, 2005: New Parent Survival Guide to Shopping, Activities, Restaurants and More.

The Lilaguide: Baby-Friendly Miami & FT Lauderdale, 2005: New Parent Survival Guide to Shopping, Activities, Restaurants and More.


"When Dr. Sears can’t help, "the lilaguide" can."-"San Francisco Magazine" "A great resource that’s long overdue."-"SF Weekly" "The definitive owner’s manual for families with babies and toddlers."-"San Francisco Downtown Magazine" Like they say, everything changes when you have a baby. That’s why "the lilaguide" has become the essential item on every new parent’s checklist. Most parents wish their baby came with some sort of user-friendly handbook. Luckily, babies come with a lot of excellent word-of-mouth advice from other parents and friends. In fact, we found that nearly every parent out there has a great piece of child-rearing advice, like which baby store is the most helpful, or which restaurant tolerates strained carrots on the floor. Someone, we thought, should write this stuff down. And that’s how, please pardon the pun, "the lilaguide" was born. Our guides are literally written by parents for parents, through thousands of volunteer surveys. It’s what happens when someone writes down all the parental wisdom, organizes it, calculates it and presents it in an easy-to-use format. Apparently a lot of other new parents appreciate the inside scoop provided by the lilaguide, because our little green-striped books are quickly becoming a staple item in diaper bags across the country. You’ll find us in bookstores, toy stores, gift stores and maternity wards. Not to mention at a whole lot of baby showers. We’re rapidly expanding into major metro markets throughout the country, making the lilaguide the only national guide of its kind.

I See You Made an Effort: Compliments, Indignities, and Survival Stories from the Edge of 50

I See You Made an Effort: Compliments, Indignities, and Survival Stories from the Edge of 50


The panic began to set in when Annabelle Gurwitch turned 49. Suddenly, new and pernicious health problems began to plague her, solicitations from the AARP began flooding her mailbox, and a marriage proposal on Twitter was abruptly rescinded when the tweeter caught a glimpse of Gurwitch’s age. A visit to her gynecologist ended not with one of his usual benign send-offs ? stay healthy, stay happy, stay hydrated ? but instead with the slightly ominous: ?Stay?funny.? In this new collection of essays, Gurwitch has taken her gynecologist’s advice to heart. Whether she’s lusting after the young man fixing her computer, navigating the extensive anti-aging offerings in the Barneys beauty department, or negotiating the ins and outs of acceptable behavior with her teenage son, Gurwitch bravely turns an unflinching eye towards the myriad of issues women can expect to encounter in their later years. PRAISE FOR ANNABELLE GURWITCH Annabelle Gurwitch stares into the maw of middle age and makes you laugh, cringe, hoot, and holler. She turns fifty into a battle cry and a hallelujah.? ? Felicity Huffman, star of Desperate Housewives Annabelle Gurwitch knows all too well the hilariousness and the indignities of hitting fifty, and now she graces us with these hilarious, indignant bulletins from the combat zone. Respect ? ? Henry Alford, author of Would It Kill You to Stop Doing That?
