Frozen Synapse is the ultimate tactical game: you have full control over your strike team, directing their every movement. At the same time, your opponent is plotting to defeat you. Plan your moves, then hit the "Execute" button: both you and your enemy's turns are executed simultaneously.

Bite-size, hardcore strategy: a touch of X-Com and Laser Squad, with a striking sci-fi aesthetic.

Don’t worry, the Golden Teabags will be in their rightful place in the office soon.Yep, we won Strategy Game of the Year and RockPaperShotgun’s Best Glowy Lines Award!I was also nominated for Nicest Man and then beaten by a lawyer. Fail.Here we are accepting the Glowy Lines Award – you can see that I am ranting, typically…

Many thanks to Dan Marshall for organising the tomfoolery – it was cool to see a lot of UK indies in the same place behaving in a relatively acceptable manner. Go here and check out a list of the other winners!

Please vote for us as Indie GOTY!

Red mode DLC has arrived! When can we get the (HiB) version updated?

The game offers me the choice of Windows or OSX update when launched :/

Get the latest version from Mode 7 Games update server and it will work, adding all new free features.
Buy the DLC (from Mode 7 Games, not Desura) and enter your key in order to play Red.

When will Red be available here?

Sorry, I'm using Linux and forgot Desura is also for Windows. I'm after an updated Linux client - which is not offered for d/l from the mode 7 server or w/e.

I'm running the latest version on Linux (version_id="32") too. I really don't know if I can post the link here as it's not the Desura version...
Anyway, get the lastet Linux build from Mode 7 Games and it will work.

Thanks Cycyx. I've received a url from the guys at Mode 7. I can now run it outside of Desura at least.

Hopefully Desura will get updated at some point too.
