Gameplay in Frozen Synapse focuses on knife-edge tactical decisions: matches between opposing squads are quick, intense battles of wits rather than slow-burn strategic epics. The emphasis is on tactical competence rather than memorising unit trees or hoarding resources. We're calling it"bite-sized hardcore strategy" because we think that sounds fantastic.
You've patched into the enemy's security system: now prepare to make your plan. Frozen Synapse is a simultaneous turn-based game set in the near-future. Both multi-player and single-player game modes will be available, with the emphasis on instant tactical gratification and outwitting your opponent. An atmospheric top-down view of your squad will enable you to craft the perfect strategy and then watch with unfettered glee as your small men wreak unspeakable trauma upon other small men once you hit the "execute" button.
