LAN Party Politics: Election Night Offers

By Kieron Gillen on May 6th, 2010.

Just vote.

If indie developers know one thing, it’s how to turn national political warfare into cheap-and-nasty monetization. Mode 7 Games are having 20% off their Frozen Synapse Pre-order (including Beta Access) in their Tactical Voting offer. You can order it here, and need to enter the coupon code WELLHUNG to get the reduction, before 1pm tomorrow. I fear that code’s pandering to my twitter rubbishness. I rambled about Frozen Synapse here, if you don’t remember. In short: Aces! Also, Positech are celebrating the decline of our democratic values with a decline in the prices of their Democracy 2. There’s a massive 50% off today. And now to get drunk and stare at the TV in mounting horror, I suspect.

Determinance, A Little Cheaper

By Jim Rossignol on October 3rd, 2008.


Mode 7 Games have announced that their unusual sword-fighting game, Determinance, is now just $10. It’s a peculiar game, and not one that I can fully recommend. It’s great to see people experimenting with different ways of doing melee combat on the PC, but this just seems to be a little lacking in solidity. Hopefully they’re bit a little more, er, grounded in the next game. No need to listen to me though, when there’s a 146mb demo available from here.
