Report article RSS Feed Frozen Synapse: Pre-orders Open Now - Play the Beta!

Do you want to play an early beta of the ultimate tactical game Frozen Synapse and get a free copy for a friend?

Posted by Mode7Games on Apr 19th, 2010


After about two years in development so far, we're delighted to open pre-orders for Frozen Synapse!

If you pre-order now, you'll get to play the early beta that's shown in the video above.  There are still a lot of rough edges and bugs to chase down, but we've been playing it a lot recently and having fun with our testers.

You'll get a free, full copy of the game if you pre-order now: this is to make sure that everyone is able to get a game straight away and gets the maximum fun out of the early beta.

In the near future, we'll be putting out an update with some quick fixes very soon and then going back to work on polishing this version, as well as starting to get in some more of the community stuff we want to have in there.

We have a preview from the almighty Rockpapershotgun up now!  Mr Kieron Gillen, who is a very nice man (not just because he wrote nice things about us, mind) wrote it.  There are too many nice things to quote right now.

There's a nice preview at Resolution over here, written Mr Lewis Denby who is a very nice man (not just because he wrote nice things about us either).

Also, we'll be going over to Gamespot later this week, so watch out for that one.

We've had a huge amount of interest in pre-ordering the game, which has been amazing: thanks for everything so far and we'll keep you updated with all you need to know.

CLICK HERE TO PRE-ORDER!

Finally! Well done on getting this far!
Do everyone who is buying this, log onto the IRC channel and have a chat (and insult whomever you're playing against)

Yep, it's irc.maxgaming.net #mode7games if you want to use your own client. There's an in-game client as well, though.

And one from Resolution Mag already up! Resolution-magazine.co.uk

Sorry Lewis! I did actually mean to mention you, I am a bad person. Spankings.

OK, everyone go to Resolution right now - do it RIGHT NOW. Then come back and pre-order!

Since I can't help you with my wallet I'll try and do the next best thing! Get other people to open their wallets for you! I'm a genious! I made a thread on a forum that I'm at. Let's hope people start to notice.

You have actually been there too. Anyway here it is! Tell me what you think and tell me to correct any faulty information. I don't want to get you in trouble for my incompetence.

The game will currently run on pretty much any low-end modern hardware - even netbooks. You need 512 meg RAM.

That music is called "Deeper", was written by me (nervous_testpilot) especially for that trailer, and is available as part of the music pack you get when you buy one of the big pre-order bundles. Really glad you like it!

So pleased to see you guys come this far, I remember when I first saw some concept shots and fresh ideas. It was quite a pleasure watching it develop and blossom into a great game. One of the reasons I love moddb :)

I'll definitely be supporting once I save up some cash. Hopefully by this weekend. I'll probably buy it again if you release it on Steam with integration with friends list etc. Can never have too many copies to give to others!
