A Demo is now available on itch.io!
Description
Frost is a Survival solo Card game. Inspired by deck-building board games like Dominion, Ascension and the like, it's an unique take on the genre as it puts you in charge of a group of people struggling against a restless, lethal storm.

Gameplay

You start every game with a limited set a resources, your starting deck, made of a combination of the 4 basic resources of the game: Food, Materials, Survivors and Fatigue.

The primary goal of the game is to reach the Refuge by travelling through many places. You'll gather the resources needed to travel from one region to another, and face events like wolf packs, other groups of people, etc.

To help you with your struggle, you will be able to acquire "Idea Cards", with powerful effects or useful tools.

Universe


Frost is the name of a lethal storm permanently going around the planet, forcing everyone to spend their life fleeing, walking. It is said that somewhere there's a Refuge where the Frost won't go, will you be able to find it?

The world of Frost is a mystery place, deeply influenced by this tempest. Tribes are forced to be nomads and adapted.

In the base mode, the focus is on a tribe struggling to find the legendary Refuge. Most of the tribes in Frost have a level of technology equivalent to the Stone Age. In future modes, I would like to explore other facets of the universe of Frost by focusing on other tribes or societies.

Hey, I saw blitz play, played the demo myself and this game is AWESOME! I'd love to buy an early copy on steam if you plan on doing that. Can't wait for the release!

@xander your deck is re-shuffled from your discard pile when you have drawn every card of your deck :)
Thank you all for your support!

This to me is a beautiful and fun game.

The soundtrack is haunting and really has a feel of trying to brave through an artic storm. The game is simple enough, but it can also be very challenging to determine when you need to rest, and what you should sacrifice. One of the things I enjoyed most when I first saw this game was the artwork. It may seem plain and empty at times, but it is very well drawn and it makes this game certainly pleasing to look at. I find all the cards I came across innovative as well in the way they linked with each other. Make a spear to kill a wolf, cannabilize a survivor to gain food. Things you expect to see as a possibility in a survival situation gone south.

An excellent little game! I hope this gets Greenlit!

I saw blitz play it, and I think you did well balancing the extractor, nice other improvements as well. The stock thing is really nice, and the reshuffling of the deck as well. How does that work by the way, does it hold all the cards you use until you have used all of the cards in your deck? that would gaurentee running into all of your cards sooner or later, which is probably a good thing.

This looks like a good idea, reminiscent of the old single-player boardgames such as Chainsaw warrior.

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

You can check it out at www.thegdwc.com .

Good luck with the development!

@WhySoBizarre I totally agree :) I'd love to put more languages

@WhySoBizarre That is a good idea, and I think it would be somewhat easy due to most of the text in this game (aside from tutorial) is composed of single words.
