Ian Hardingham, the co-founder of Mode 7 Games, has left the Frozen Synapse studio and the games industry altogether for a new career as a bona fide brain science man working on detecting Alzheimer’s disease. Goodness me. This does sadly mean that Mode 7 are winding down development a bit, still making the odd small-ish game or two and publishing others but no longer planning “large-scale” games of their own. That’s a shame as they’ve made some crackers but I suppose it is also good to, y’know, work against a horrifying disease.

Frozen Synapse 2 s campaign puts you in charge of a security force in a sprawling, cyberpunk metropolis where a rogue AI threatens the safety of the populace. It also lets you choose your character s name, honorific, and organisation. So, naturally, it was time for Grand Moff Godzilla Johnson to lead the CyberBois to victory.

This is, of course, the sequel to 2011’s Frozen Synapse. Through procedurally generated, isometric, neon maps, you ll gradually fill out snaps of real-time play with tactical minutiae. Individual units can be commanded to move from point to point, to turn and aim, to duck and stand, to cover certain zones, to focus on or ignore certain enemies, and to wait for specific periods of time before and after doing any of these, in any combination.

Maybe there’s something to all these tactics games. They’re sneaky – you blink, and you’re flanked with nowhere to hide. Today’s second surprise announcement in the genre is that Frozen Synapse 2 launches next week on Thursday, September 13th. Jack me in.

Frozen Synapse 2 is a vastly more ambitious beast than its purely tactical predecessor. Developer Mode 7 have taken the tense turn-based combat of the first game and transplanted it into a dynamic campaign set across a procedurally generated city. Check out the new trailer below, giving a tantalising peek at its glowing neon world erupting into flames.

Sorry for lack of a confirmed release date - at the moment we're working really hard on trying to get the last remaining bugs. Our testers are doing a great job and we've brought on some external QA to help.

I really appreciate your patience and I'll have more info for you soon.

Please do take a second to Wishlist the game - it really helps us out.

Hi there,

I don't generally post much FS2 stuff in this community but I'd really appreciate it if you'd give this a watch:

This video shows off the core gameplay loop of FS2, a little bit of content and also is a discussion of what we're doing to polish the game up for its final beta.

Any comments much appreciated.
