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.

Fail.Here we are accepting the Glowy Lines Award – you can see that I am ranting, typically…

The best Game I played this year. A ton of fun in single- and multiplayer and the soundtrack is awesome.
Sadly I only own the Steamversion so I can't add it to my Desuralist, but thank you anyway for the Linuxversion. :)

Anyone have any issues launching this from inside Desura on 64bit linux?
When I try it fails to load and the log file is empty, but if I launch the script from a console it works fine.
