New Frontier has an open world environment, which is about one fifth the size of the world in Skyrim. The game is set 150 years after a devastating nuclear war, which led to the collapse of society, and the rise of a new civilization. It's a game about exploration, survival, adapting to an ever-changing landscape, and rebuilding.

Gameplay

The player scavenges for resources and items and uses them to craft items and weapons. There is an emphasis on survival and self-reliance, and the player has to make difficult decisions and prioritize choices. You start off as a single settler with a handful of workers. Your goal is to build a thriving community. You have to hunt, farm, and gather materials to expand your settlement. You have to use those materials to build new structures. As you build, you'll meet new people who will want to join your town. You'll have to decide who to let in, and can turn people away if you're running low on food. However, if you're the only person in the town, you won't be able to turn people away. New Frontier is an interactive novel, and the gameplay is very simple. The player's decisions will affect the story and the characters. The game is played as a series of five-minute rounds and the story is told as the player's decisions as they happen. The player takes on the role as a newly-arrived colonist, and the game progresses as the player moves around the colony and interacts with other characters.

Graphics

The graphics vary from area to area, and there are different levels of graphical detail to match the player's range of visibility. The graphics are attractive, but not too realistic. They're very cartoonish, which fits the game nicely. The graphics are very detailed and the user interface has been designed to be as simple as possible. The player can interact with any object or person in the world, and the graphics are detailed enough to allow the player to read the text on a computer screen or a letter.

Replayability

The game has a number of different endings, and each playthrough can take from 20-30 hours. There isn't a ton of replayability, but you might want to play through the game again to see if you can make different decisions and build a different community. The replayability of New Frontier is a little limited, as the player will have to play the same story from the beginning every time they play the game.

Conclusion

Overall, New Frontier is a city building game with a strong focus on combat. You start off as a single settler with a handful of workers, and try to build a thriving community. You have to hunt, farm, and gather materials to expand your settlement, and use those materials to build new structures.
