Game: Frozen Synapse
I found an excellent game in the Humble Store a few days ago called Frozen Synapse. This game was released in 2011 but I never heard of it before.
“Frozen Synapse is a turn-based tactics video game developed by independent game developer Mode 7 Games, in which players plan their moves at their leisure and turns are resolved simultaneously. Players attempt to win by giving orders to a small squad of armed combatants, most commonly with the goal of eliminating all enemy units.” (via wikipedia)
Here is the trailer:
The design of the game is very similar to the games of Introversion Software (Uplink, Darwinia, Defcon). I guess the creators of this game are a huge fan of Introversion games :)
In theory it works under Linux too but I couldn’t make it run under my Ubuntu 13.10 yet. I had to try it under Windows.
Are you aware of similar games? If yes, please leave a comment.
