Frozen Cortex review

Frozen Cortex [official site], formerly Frozen Endzone, is a futuristic American Football analogue where surprisingly graceful robots take the place of fleshy, armour-clad men. It's evocative of Speedball and Blood Bowl, but it's really Frozen Synapse wrapped in the theme of competitive team sports. The result's a purely strategic and tactical game, entirely absent RNG, with players taking their turns simultaneously. I'm quite bad at…

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…

Feature: What happens when a dev hates their own game's name

Mode Seven Explain Why Frozen Cortex Left The Frendzone

Frozen Synapse developers Mode Seven have been quietly talking about changing the name of their exceedingly clever but regrettably-titled strategic robo-sports game Frozen Endzone for some time now. Tired of all the friendzone puns and concerned about how much it overstated the American Football aspect, they've only gone and done it. Frozen Endzone is no more: as of today we have Frozen Cortex. Or, Frendzone…

Frozen Endzone Thawing Out On Steam Early Access

Mode 7's Frozen Endzone has just an hour ago made its way onto Steam's Early Access. Not that early, eh Steam? The game's beta came out at the beginning of December, and Alec has already had a mighty good poke around with it. To celebrate their arrival on the big grey rectangle, there's a new super-chilled out trailer, below. A trailer than also includes a…

Player Stats & Pitch Editors: Frozen Endzone’s Patchzone

I dug strategy/futuresports robo-tournament Frozen Endzone, but while I'm well aware it's just in beta form for now I'm very much in need of more personality (and in the game, etc) and variety if I'm to be in it for the long haul. Fortunately devs Mode 7 have detailed their plans for the game's first major update, and it sounds as though they'll be tackling…

Feature: Hot action, cold bottom

Impressions: Frozen Endzone

Frozen Endzone is a primarily multiplayer turn-based strategy game about robots playing American Football. Calling it the result of XCOM and Speedball having one hot night together wouldn't be entirely inaccurate, but it has rather more in common with its acclaimed predecessor, Frozen Synapse. Its beta is out today. Yes, yes, Friendzone, Cold Arse, jolly good, we've all giggled about it enough times now. I'm…

Synapse Judgment: Frozen Endzone Trailer Touches Down

Are you ready for some hard-hitting, neon-sweat-slick (but not like in those silly Gatorade commercials) eSports? I mean that literally, too: Frozen Synapse developer Mode 7 has devised its very own electronic sport. Balls are thrown, touchdowns are scored,┬álives are at stake. OK, maybe not so much that last one, but that's not to say that Frozen Endzone is a total departure from Frozen Synapse's…

Frozen Endzone Beta Will Touchdown In November

Frozen Endzone, Mode 7's futuro-sports game that I would like to take on the cheeky little nickname of Frozone, is not out yet. For the people who want to play it this a problem on many levels. I sympathise, and at least have some news that'll excite and thrill you. Frozone's beta is about to go public, and you'll be able to buy into it…

Rezzed: Enter The Frendzone

The only part of me miserable after Rezzed is my thighs. I had to choose between all the games on the show floor and all those talks in the giant room of developer brain thinks. The decision was almost unbearable, so for the first eight hours of the first day I was stood in the corridor between the two, hoping that being equidistant would allow…

Feature: In the Frendzone with Mode 7

Frozen Endzone’s Influences, Singleplayer & Unsportiness

As well as pointing my tragically non-robotic eyes at robot futuresports / strategy game Frozen Endzone last week, I also had a long natter with Mode 7 founders Ian Hardingham and Paul Taylor about their follow-up to the splendid Frozen Synapse. Read on for its origin story, how it's not really like American Football, their roguelike-like plans for the game's singleplayer mode, inevitable comparisons to…

Feature: Welcome to the Frendzone

Hut Hut Hut: A Frozen Endzone Preview

Frozen Endzone is a turn-based futuresports game from the creators of asynchronous strategy game Frozen Synapse. I went to see it last week. I drove there in a car and everything. I returned with the following words and thoughts. I was anxious, worried, scared: this I will admit. Me, a 5'6", nebbish man of words and screens whose strongest-ever investment in sport was playing badminton…

Frozen Endzone: The Frozen Follow-Up To Frozen Synapse

Juuuust a quick one, as I shall be returning on Tuesday with vastly more fulsome news on Frozen Endzone, Mode 7's next game after the wonderful Frozen Synapse. But they've just gone live with a trailer and a Greenlight page, so see what you think. It's a future sports game. It's a strategy game. In other words, it's a sports game that isn't really a…
