Hi!
We've now launched turn notifications for Frozen Synapse on Steam.
The next time you log in you'll be asked if you want to recieve notifications. If you choose yes you'll be notified by Steam itself as soon as a new turn is ready for your matches, even if the game itself isn't open. You can choose to turn these notifications on or off from the Game Notifications Settings page.
You can also launch the game from your notifications page and once you log in the relevant match will load automatically.

  • Right click on the game in your Library and click on Properties
  • Click on the Betas tab
  • Enter the password 'courage' in to the text field provided and click on Check Code
  • Select the preview option from the drop down box
  • Either wait or restart Steam and the update will begin downloading
Let us know what you think in the forums!

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 HAHA LIKE IN SPORT quite a few of grumbles I grumbled its way, grumblily.

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 going to give you thirty seconds to get it all out of your system.

(I really would have changed the game name if I were Mode 7, but I do admire their resolve). (more…)

The sequel, Frozen Friendzone, will be much whinier and full of spiteful oversimplifications of human relationship dynamics. Also, it will be 75 percent more blue.

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, lives 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 simultaneous turn-based battle of wits and weaponry. For one, it reprises the latter’s brand of two-steps-ahead-or-else-you’re-dead strategy, and also an inordinate number of things are blue. Something for everyone! Watch it in action and learn about the right-around-the-corner beta below.

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 sometime in November. When in November? No idea. This November? I am 99% certain the November they mention in the press release is this November. Anyone buying a copy will receive an extra copy of the full game when it’s released, a generous trick they pulled with Frozen Synapse. (more…)

If I’ve learned anything throughout my years as a connoisseur of knowledge, it’s that charity is a relentless beast. It looked at the mountain of games I’ve yet to play from the last Humble Bundle, scoffed, and said “That’s it?” Well, it did in my head, at least. But I’m sure if the Humble Bundle with Android 6 were sentient, that’s what it would say.

The latest bundle of humbleness may have “Android” in the name, but that doesn’t mean we PC folk can’t enjoy the spoils. The Humble Bundle with Android 6 includes Stealth Bastard Deluxe, Aquaria, Fractal, Pulse (which is sadly Android-only), and Organ Trail: Director’s Cut. You may have to re-read the name of that last game.

As always, the Humble Bundle costs whatever you choose to pay, though throwing in a buck or more will net you Steam keys for each game along with the DRM-free direct download you normally get. Being more charitable than the average penny-pincher (who as of now pays $4.69) earns you Frozen Synapse and Broken Sword: Director’s Cut as well.

This Humble Bundle ends on July 2 at 4 pm, so you have plenty of time if you decide to divvy up your cash to developers or charities that strike your fancy.

Try rubbing your hands all over the screenshot.Crossplay used to be what happened to me when I played Team Fortress 2, but after a restraining order from my mouse pad and some anger management classes, I no longer feel the need to be angry at Pyros. Now the world has moved on, the word has taken on a new meaning: what happens when one gaming system and another defy all cultural boundaries and work together. Frozen Synapse is about to do just that with its iPad version: you’ll be able to play multiplayer across the PC and the iPad, and if you own both versions then you can continue your game you were playing on whatever system you have at hand. Toilet time just got tactical. (more…)
