Frozen Synapse (tactical turn based strategy game)

Yes, that’s right, we caved under the pressure!

This has been in the works for a while – we still have a lot of work to do on the interface as well as some additional tweaks, but then it’ll be time for beta.

We’re hoping that it’ll be out in the first half of next year – we’ll be more specific about that eventually!

I should mention that you will definitely be able to play cross-platform with the iPad version.

Finally, I don’t want people to worry that we’re going to abandon FS on its current platforms – we’re actually working right now to hire another team member so we can give it more attention and update it more efficiently.

We gave the guys who turned up to our pub meet in Nottingham a sneak peek of the current iPad build! Here are some photos…

Currently learning iMaschine and Garage Band.

That. Looks. Freaking. Amazing.

A must buy for me at one, now to just remember the name and patiently wait until it comes out!

I absolutely loved this game on the mac, and I cannot wait to purchase it for the iPad. I worry slightly for the controls, but I'm sure that you'll get them right.

Heyhey, the devs have spoken on their blog:

"iPad version – no actual date but we’re working on it as hard as we can. April if you want a COMPLETELY unofficial guess. And yes it will work on iPad 1."

Shush, don't tell anyone!
