Game: Banished
Developer: Shining Rock Software
Platforms: Windows, possibly Mac in the future
Distribution: Steam), DRM-Free

Games like this aren't usually my cup of tea, but the depth and whole 'surviving the winter' stuff sounds awesome. I strongly urge you to check out the game link for all the info, but here's the first bit:
Welcome to the world of Banished! In this city-building strategy game, you control a group of exiled travelers who decide to restart their lives in a new land. They have only the clothes on their backs and a cart filled with supplies from their homeland.

The objective of the game is to keep the population alive and grow it into a successful culture. Options for feeding the people include hunting and gathering, agriculture, trade, and fishing. However, sustainable practices must be considered to survive in the long term.

I saw this game on Steam's 'upcoming' yesterday and instantly wishlisted. Nuf said.

(though I agree that reposting all this 'upcoming' games straight from Steam/Desura is just meh)

I've been tracking this one for a while now. Someone I know brought it up yesterday and it reminded me of it, so I posted. I didn't even know Steam had an 'upcoming' section. Interesting.

Don't recall them ever not having it really, although they call
it 'coming soon'. It's just on the front page, not hidden or anything.
This game got on there yesterday, likely how your friend found it.

The interwebz only go back to September 2013 for this game so
'a while' is relative ;) (no Kickstarter or such known either)
