History

Wildfrost is a collaboration between Will Lewis (Programmer & Designer, Deadpan Games) and Gaziter (Artist & Designer)! The core team of two work remotely on the project from different continents. Will previously developed Caveblazers, a brutal roguelike platformer, while Gaziter has produced art for cosy indies, Forager and KnotBot.

After first interacting on Twitter in 2018 and admitting they admired one another’s work, the pair decided to create several prototypes together. Will and Gaziter started developing Wildfrost in March 2020 during lockdown when the pair had plenty of time to flesh out Gaziter’s paper card game he had been experimenting with in his spare time. By September 2020 the prototype had expanded enough to begin full development on the beautifully charming deckbuilder you see today!

Wildfrost was released on Steam and Nintendo Switch on April 12, 2023, and will continue to receive updates.
