Mode 7 co-founder leaves to do brain science

Ian Hardingham, the co-founder of Mode 7 Games, has left the Frozen Synapse studio and the games industry altogether for a new career as a bona fide brain science man working on detecting Alzheimer's disease. Goodness me. This does sadly mean that Mode 7 are winding down development a bit, still making the odd small-ish game or two and publishing others but no longer planning…

Open World Tactics: Frozen Synapse 2 Announced

What a time to be alive. Not a moon pie in sight but 2016 is already looking like a fantastic smorgasbord of tactical treats. It's early February and yet we've already seen XCOM 2 and Darkest Dungeon.

Mode 7 have just announced a major singleplayer update, however, and it sounds like exactly what's…

Frozen Cortex Has A Release Date Trailer

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…

Greeting Seasons: Frozen Cortex Adds Singleplayer

Mode 7's simultaneous turn-based future-sport game, Frozen Cortex [official site], has received an enormous update, adding a lifetime's worth of singleplayer content. Even if you expect your own lifetime to cover an extended period, you should be covered - the update includes randomised seasons, persistent story elements, commentators, a perma-death knockout mode and loads of unique players. I've been looking forward to this as much…
