What's that? Could it be the sound of indie developers Mode 7 releasing their simultaneous-turn-based tactical MONOLITH Frozen Synapse?
No, actually it's just a sequence of entirely unrelated onomatopoeic gibberish.
You probably don't need any bullet points...
Well, go ON then, as it's launch day, here are some things you may not know about the game:
- Over 5 references to the works of Samuel Beckett!
- A Steam achievement called“Breaking the 4th Wall” for blowing up...your 4th wall!
- Enable or disable backgrounds at will!
- A character who looks a bit like an old lady by mistake!
- A really cool“ding” noise when a grenade hits a wall! Ding!
(Non-stupid information about the game can be found at www.frozensynapse.com)
Frozen Synapse is available to buy from the following places:
Direct from Mode 7 at www.frozensynapse.com
Steam (later today)
The game is currently hitting with a juicy launch discount, bringing it down to $19.99.
You can also get a soundtrack bundle with an additional bonus album from Mode 7 musician nervous_testpilot, priced at $29.99.
If you buy direct from Mode 7, you'll get a key to activate the game on Steam– isn't that spiffing?
You get both the PC and Mac version when you buy!
FS runs on really low-spec computers, such as netbooks, so the whole world can run it! Hopefully.

Hit me up at paulmode7 at the gmail of the dot and the com if you would like...anything, really. I do interviews, review code, wittering, gibbering and all manner of other intriguing behaviours.
Finally, thanks for all of the support through the pre-order and right through until now - it has been really great for us to get so much coverage.
