About This Game

Frozen Cortex is a simultaneous turn-based strategy game from Mode 7, the creators of Frozen Synapse. Get a free key for a friend with every purchase!

Make a plan for your customised robots on a randomly-generated playfield. Positioning, timing and reading the terrain are all vital if you want to outwit your opponent.

Your moves, and those of your opponent, play out at the same time.

Taut, competitive multiplayer and a deep, complex single player with three different league modes (including large-scale randomly generated league) mean that you can experience your own brand of futuresporting glory!

“Another brilliant slice of strategy from Mode 7” (Eurogamer)

“I’ve been looking forward to this as much as almost any other game this year.” (Adam Smith, RockPaperShotgun)
