By Quintin Smith on May 6th, 2011.

I had a typo of 'Frozen Snaps' while writing this and wanted to keep it in but didn't

Give me 1,200 words. I’m going to make you pre-order something you’ve never even heard of,” began Kieron’s preview of turn-based tactical squad combat game Frozen Synapse.

If you haven’t read it yet, now’s the time to blow the dust off and take a look. With the game’s release just around the corner, developers Mode 7 have today released the game’s 55 mission single player campaign into the open beta that’s available to all pre-order customers. Yes, fifty five.

Interview: Defrosting Frozen Synapse

By Alec Meer on February 11th, 2011.

So many died, so quickly

You know what we haven’t talked about for a while? Frozen Synapse – the high-speed tactical strategy game from Oxfordshire developers Mode 7. It takes the spine of X-COM, adds a little procedural generation and tweaks it into something fresh, fast, instant and accessible. And it’s still not been released, despite having been released last year. Oh, “beta,” you beautiful, confusing word, you. I recently caught up with Mode 7′s joint MD Ian Hardingham to find out what’s happened since I last got shot to death in neon freeze-time, what comes next and how they’re planning to make it as strong a singleplayer offering as it is a multiplayer one. It’s an open and entertaining chat, I think, but also includes the worst joke I have ever made in my entire, pitiful life.

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.

Turning Test: Frozen Synapse

By Kieron Gillen on January 19th, 2010.

This excited me when I first heard about it, and excites me even more now that footage has been released and I can see it in motion. Mode 7 Games’ first game Determinance was something which I think most of RPS feel the team over-reached themselves by going full-3D realistic 3D. Frozen Synapse couldn’t be more different. It’s a simultaneous turn-based game with really iconic looking graphics. Think of a non-e-mail-based Laser Squad Nemesis with Introversion’s 80s-neon aesthetic. And if that leaves you confused, the following footage should explain all…

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.
