Frozen Synapse 2 kicking in the door to August

Turn-based tactical squad shooter Frozen Synapse 2 should launch some time in August, developers Mode 7 Games announced today, seven years after the first came out. The sequel is still focused on squad-based tactical action where all units and sides play their turns out simultaneously, but now it's built into an overarching strategic level of protecting a whole procedurally-generated futurecity and placating its many factions.…

Tokyo 42 trailer shows different combat approaches

Occasionally I see some concept art for a game's urban environment and get excited by its dramatic architecture and vibrant colours. Inevitably I see an actual screenshot for the game shortly thereafter and am immediately disappointed by the failure to translate that concept art into the actual game. I have no idea whether Tokyo 42 [official site] ever had concept art, but if it did…

Frozen Synapse Prime PC Announced, Reforges Original

Hang on, that's not the contrasting green, blue and red I'm used to! There's been a robbery of extreme colour, replacing it with bluish greys and skyline backdrops! Just one of the changes made to Frozen Synapse in the Prime version that's coming to Steam on November 14th. It's a port of the Vita, uh, port with some added goodies. I actually quite like the…

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…

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…

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…

Saw Red: Frozen Synapse Expands, Gains Co-op

The indie darlings of yesteryear are back with a vengeance. I mean, with titles like Wrath of the Lamb and Red, what else could they possibly be out for? A pleasant stroll? A picnic? No, this is a declaration of war - or at least "Hey, we still exist. Notice us." And I have! So everything worked out. Thank goodness. And wow, Frozen Synapse: Red,…

Frozen Synapse’s Changed Ending: A Mass Indie Effect?

All the important games are changing their endings these days, you know. If you want a high profile, that's the way to go - and as Mass Effect 3 teaches us, preferably after initially concluding your narrative with a last-minute bodgejob riddled with continuity errors, then subsequently bowing to fan ouctry. Frozen Synapse developers Mode 7 Games did no such thing, but have sensibly realised…

Frozen Synapse DLC Mutates

The year is 1999 and the crazy chaps at Epic Games have just came up with the concept of mutators, little mods that you can use to tweak game types. But just as they're about to implement it, a cheap-looking wibbly effect appears in front of Cliffy A (Cliffy B is a clone) and a mysterious figure steals his PC! Mark Rein enters the room,…

Frozen Synapse Unfreezes Its Price

The 'Humble Bundle' tag by this point surely guarantees that any indie games blessed with it have the money hose turned on 'em. Latest is Mode 7 Games' most excellent tactical strategy affair Frozen Synapse, which has just now gone pay what you want under the trusty Humble banner - but only for the duration of the next 14 days. If you don't have FZ…

Other reasons to pay attention to it include this preview essay by Gillen, this AAR by Gillen, and this review by Meer. Those are our endorsements. We stand by them. Also: Steam will be offering Frozen Synapse at 50% off from Thursday 11th…

Frozen Synapse: Beating Mike Gapper

There is more to Frozen Synapse than beating fellow games-journalist Mike Gapper, but I figure that's as good an entrance point as any into its work of turn-based-tactical-manoeuvring. In lieu of a Verdict or a WIT or something, I figured I could try and explain some of the details of the game which make it so appealing to me, by yabbering over some video footage.…

Frozen Synapse: Here, Reviewed By Meer

Mode 7's turn-based yet lightning-quick combat strategy game Frozen Synapse finally got a proper, big-boy release yesterday. A fair chunk of you will have played it already, as it's been in a purchasable beta form since the beginning of time or thereabouts, but if you've not glanced back at it since the early days, you're in for a meaty treat. In addition to a host…

Frozen Synapse Thaws Soon – New Trailer

Kieron and Quintin's excitement about Mode 7's Frozen Synapse has been somewhat infectious, which means it's safe to say there's rather a lot of people looking forward to the imminent release of the fast-paced simultaneous turn-based action strategy-em-up. It's so soon! This Thursday! And it's found itself a publisher in Matrix Games. There's some new pictures, one of them moving, below.

Frozen Synapse SP Campaign Released

"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…

Interview: Defrosting Frozen Synapse

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…

LAN Party Politics: Election Night Offers

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…
