Frozen Synapse: Tactics Announced


Double Eleven are bringing Frozen Synapse to PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita.

After recently announcing their new digital publishing branch - D11 Games - Double Eleven have now revealed that they will be working with Mode 7 on a console version of Frozen Synapse. The new title, Frozen Synapse: Tactics, will be released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita via the PSN store.

Originally released in 2011, the critically praised Frozen Synapse has sold over 430,000 copies to date. Its unique style of gameplay offers something new to the strategy gaming genre and is a refreshing change from modern traditional RTSs.

Frozen Synapse for us represents some of the best work coming out of the UK and onto the PC. We know theres also a great console game in there as well waiting to be realised. said Mark South, COO for Double Eleven.

Demi Gounari, Art Director on the new project, said We are thrilled to be working on Frozen Synapse; our vision is to reinvent the games aesthetics and interactivity in the same way that Mode7 reinvented strategy gaming with this title.

Mark added that we dont want to give too much away yet, but I will say that Frozen Synapse: Tactics is not simply a transition of the original onto console; we will be giving it a complete Double Eleven makeover.

Paul Taylor, the co-founder and joint MD of Mode 7, said, Frozen Synapse proved that turn-based strategy doesn't have to be about people with misguided beards prodding tanks into lonely hexagons. We have put our trust in Double Eleven to translate our original vision for a PlayStation audience; they have impressed us with their commitment to creating a completely new version for Sony's awesome hardware. We can't wait to see what they come up with.

Shahid Ahmad, Senior Business Development Manager at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, said We have a fantastic relationship with Double Eleven and have supported their publishing model of bringing hit indie IPs to our platform. As Double Elevens first self-published game, after releasing LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, they have chosen a perfect title for PlayStation.

Frozen Synapse: Tactics is scheduled for release in 2013. Keep an eye on our website, Twitter and Facebook page for updates.

 

Never heard of this game, though it looks familiar. All i will say after seeing some footage of the pc version,  is that it will look fantastic on the vita screen

As much as i hate touchscreens... i think a game like this might perform (mechanically) well on the vita. I havnt played the pc one, but it looked like it had rts elements... so..

It's turn-based.

You set up an entire turn while your enemy sets up their entire turn, and then when you both hit play the turn commences, and you pray that you made smarter decisions than your opponent :P

It's a pretty awesome game, and battles are pretty short so it's great for pick up and play matches if you're on the go especially since you can set up your turn, put the game down and walk away, and then come back to it much like those Facebook games like Words With Friends. You can play at your own leisure.

 

Well.........don't quote me on that. I'm not sure how the Playstation version will work, but it'll probably be lame  :P
