UK based independent games developer Bad Logic Studios have announced their latest game, Dead of Winter, will be coming to Early Access on Steam in 2021.
Dead of Winter is a single-player base building real-time strategy game where players must lead their villagers in a battle for survival against relentless hordes of undead as they gather, build and explore in a post-apocalyptic medieval fantasy world plunged into a seemingly endless winter.
Bad Logic Studios is most known for it’s small 2D action platformer games, so a large scale strategy game may seem like a bit of a departure, however the studio was founded by the Lead Gameplay Programmer for the Grand Strategy/RTS hybrid Medieval Kingdom Wars which was one of Steam’s “Best of 2019” games, making Dead of Winter more of a return to their roots for the developer.
Speaking on the reasons for releasing as Early Access, the developer has stated “I am solo developing Dead of Winter and I feel Early Access will allow me to more thoroughly test and balance the game than I would otherwise be able to do on my own. This way when the game finally launches, it will be a far more polished and enjoyable experience for everyone!”
The Early Access version of Dead of Winter is expected to release mid-2021 and will include a story driven Campaign and Skirmish/Survival mode. It is anticipated that Dead of Winter will remain in Early Access for around six months.
