Mode 7's Paul Taylor said the studio also is "looking at better ways of updating and supporting the game on its current platforms," and that fans should "expect some new things in the New Year" as well.
Currently available for Windows and Linux PC and Mac, Frozen Synapse has been an indie delight this year, pushing more than 300,000 in sales and well regarded enough to get its own Humble Bundle.
Mode 7 said Frozen Synapse for the iPad will enter a beta soon, with a price and final release date to be announced next year.
I'm only just now getting around to Frozen Synapse, which was released back in May and about which a bunch of people I know have had only nice things to say. So far, it's like some glorious combination of X-Com and Tron with maybe a touch of Rainbow Six and Ubisoft's fantastic 3DS game Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars. (Which is still my favorite 3DS game—Crecente agrees.)
Frozen Synapse's developers, Mode 7, are now offering a free demo on their website, and this weekend, the full game is 50% off on Steam. That means that for $12.99, you'll actually get two copies of the game, one for you and one to send to whichever friend you'd most like to cleverly ambush and kill, over and over again.
