“We’ve got some amazing reviews and sales are continuing to be strong,” bellowed co-founder Paul Taylor into his gigantic speaking tube.
Climbing into the Top Sellers chart on Steam in several territories at launch, as well as surpassing Mode 7’s initial expectations, Frozen Synapse has proved itself to be a winner.
“This means two things: firstly, Mode 7 is here to stay; secondly, we can keep working on Frozen Synapse to make sure we do it justice,” adds Paul, twirling his cane.
A new trailer, featuring real multiplayer gameplay, has been released:
Also, due to huge demand, the soundtrack to Frozen Synapse has now been released as a standalone album.
The score by nervous_testpilot (aka Paul Taylor...yes, the same one who was bellowing above) has drawn widespread acclaim.
In an pioneering move for an indie game, Mode 7 are also happy to announce that the soundtrack has been licensed by boutique music publisher License to Thrill Music for use in advertising, TV, film and other media productions.
“We're proud to announce our partnership with artist/composer/producer nervous_testpilot,” said Valerie Vickers, A&R/Licensing Manager for License To Thrill Music.
“Drawing from a diverse musical palette that’s fused with hypnotic, electronic soundscapes, trance, pop, and the modern technological landscape, the works of nervous_testpilot capture both atmosphere and melody, making for a unique musical experience with global appeal.”
The separate soundtrack will be available direct from Mode 7 at http://www.frozensynapse.com/soundtrack.html
Customers will receive the 11 tracks in WAV, FLAC and MP3 formats
Additionally, Steam are offering a discounted version to those who have purchased the game from Steam, or choose to add their copy of the game to Steam.
