Young Timmy will work 14 hour shifts down the mines.
Or young Timmy won't get any supper.

I both really like Frostpunk and am also really frustrated by it. The core concept and aesthetic are great. The sense of desperation you feel is genuine as difficulties mount. And seriously, when the heavy duty music kicks in, you grip your mouse fiercely. And for a good while, it's easy to be hooked.
However, once you reach a certain point, you realize that it isn't so much a strategic resource sim as it is a puzzle. It wants you to build in a certain way, and if you don't, expect to get your ass handed to you quickly. It wants you to think you're making meaningful moral choices, but the two branches end up pretty similar, and they aren't so much *choices* as things you have to agree to in order to move ahead.
All that said, I still put a good number of hours in because I was willing to work through the puzzle. Ultimately, I think the good outweighs the bad *IF* you're willing to accept the actual limitations of what it is. And I think this is the foundation of what could be a truly incredible game if they truly provided freedom to win on your own terms and gave you a truly developed moral/leadership system.

If you want to be more depressed during a depressing winter this is the city management for you.
Mechanically rich but really easy to get into with a quick enough pace to keep you hooked until it's morning again.

I built a faith cult for me after being demanded to by the public, eventually a day later to build a public execution stand to set an example for those who opposed the faith, and I was the first one to get executed by my own faith keepers I employed
10/10 game

This was my first city sim in a while. I SUCKED at first, everyone died and banished me after losing like 80% of their population lol. Round two I decided to be a ruthless fascist and almost made it through the Great Storm, but still sucked it up. But on round three something clicked and it was almost too easy, I had like an entire city and weeks of supplies by the time A New Home was over.
I don't often get addicted to games, but this took over my life for a couple days. This game is super fun and very well made, but if you sit down to play it, make sure you have at least a few hours set aside. It will consume you.

lesson learned from this game; You can't make everybody happy.

I made children work in coal mines in -70 degrees weather for 24 hours.
