The original Frozen Synapse was released in 2011, developed by indie studio Mode 7. It has since sold over 430,000 copies and received great critical acclaim, reaching an incredibly respectable score of 85 on Metacritic - including five stars from The Escapist and 9/10 from Edge.
We saw it as an excellent title to bring to PSN. Its revolutionary play style works exceptionally well in multiplayer, offering a whole new competitive model that is perfect for the Vita. Users can play multiple games concurrently, making it unlike any other online experience on the platform.
The single-player campaign has a deep and engrossing storyline and works as a great introduction to the skirmish and PvP modes. We believe it’s a great all-round game. Some of our team were playing it on lunch breaks before Mode 7 and ourselves had even began speaking about the potential for working on this project.
We don’t want to give too much away on what we plan to do with it, but ‘Frozen Synapse: Tactics’ is not simply a transition of the original onto console; we will be giving it a complete Double Eleven makeover.
It’s scheduled for release later in 2013, so keep an eye on our website and Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.
