Frozen Synapse, the critically acclaimed simultaneous-turn-based indie strategy opus from Mode 7, has always been lacking something. The aforementioned something? A demo to ensnare the unwary gamer in its glistening tactical mandibles, naturally! Hit the jump for the full Press Release.
Released on Thursday 11th August, the single-player-only PC demo will consist of a tutorial plus the following exciting facets…
– A randomly generated single player Skirmish
– Three specially selected missions from the single player Campaign
To accompany this demo release, Steam will be offering Frozen Synapse at a whopping 50% off from Thursday 11th August to Monday 15th August.
The deal will go live at 10am Pacific Time today, which is an American thing, apparently.
We would like to reiterate at this point that Mode 7 consider this discount to be “whopping”, and that this has been independently verified by an external adjudicator from the University of Cor Blimey using the appropriate calipers at room temperature.
“This demo offers a unique opportunity to…oh, who am I kidding?” blurted Mode 7’s spokesnubbin Paul Taylor. “It’s a *demo*: you download it; you play it; we hope you buy the game thereafter. What more do you want from me? My shoes? You want these shoes?”
A Mac demo will follow very soon once its surface becomes so shiny that small insects slide comically along when they attempt to land on it.
