Frozen Cortex Has A Release Date Trailer

Srs bsns

Mode 7 have pinned a release date tail to their, uh, game donkey (Pip, stop trying to do metaphors) with their latest trailer for Frozen Cortex [official site]. You’ll be able to pick up the 1.0 release from 19th February as well as learning that nuclear war is bad*.

That’s a Thursday, if it makes any difference? You might have commitments on a Thursday. You might want to reschedule. Or not. LOOK, I’m only trying to help!

Anyway, I’ve not actually had a go with Frozen Cortex since it was Frozen Endzone but it was and still is a simultaneous tun-based tactical game based around a future sport which has shades of ROBOT AMERICAN FOOTBALL. I wonder if there will be a ROBOT KATY PERRY doing a halftime show and whether she will get upstaged by a ROBOT MISSY ELLIOT?

That’s probably not important. The important thing is that the game has a release date and you’re allowed to know it.

*You will need to watch the trailer to appreciate this remark.

    Hahaa, what a wonderful trailer. The game’s shaping up to be lovely too. Desk chewingly, face-on-keyboard, frustratingly lovely. Also, I’ve noticed some highly unusual team names in the various videos and screenshots released during development. Worth keeping an eye out for.

    I really like the look of this, but as a budgeting trick I have told myself I won’t buy it until I’ve properly played Frynapse.

    Speaking of which, “Frortex” isn’t as entertaining to say. I am docking one star in advance.

      Well, I still remember this as “Frendzone”…

      Frozen Synapse is excellent. It’s a head-to-head multiplayer game, but the single player campaign is more solid than it needs to be, as well.

    • bonuswavepilot says:

      Frozen Synapse definitely worth a go. Can’t really give a good review of the campaign as I only bothered with a level or two, but it truly shines as MP. If you need an opponent to help show you the ropes, or just cut you down in a hail of gunfire, fire me a challenge. (And maybe a follow-up steam msg, don’t log into FS regularly these days… I miss the leagues :(

    • Hmm-Hmm. says:

      Echoing the other here, yeah Frozen synapse is pretty excellent. I got turned off by the horrible tutorial (and snark AI didn’t help by insulting me, what were they thinking with that bit I don’t know), but the basis of the game isn’t actually that complicated and the command interface is clean although it may take some getting used to.

      Also, great soundtrack.

    Pip, keep trying to do metaphors.

    Lovely trailer, and like its predecessor reminds me a bit of the old Maxis game RoboSport. Plus now I want to dress up as that robot for Halloween.
