    Frozen Synapse: Tactics Announced for Vita and PS3

    Frozen Synapse: Tactics plans its move to PSN in 2013 | Joystiq

    Mode 7's indie darling Frozen Synapse will be ported to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita courtesy of developer Double Eleven, whose work you may recall from LittleBigPlanet Vita. The port, titled Frozen Synapse: Tactics, will be available for download on PSN sometime this year.

    Frozen Synapse is a turn-based tactical game where players manage units of varying weaponry and skill sets in an attempt to defeat the enemy team's squad; however, unlike most turn-based games, all player actions in Frozen Synapse resolve simultaneously. Once each player sets all their moves, the game then plays it all out at the same time – an atypical yet incredibly original take on the tactics genre.

    This game is amazing.


    pro-tip: If you act like a idiot the game will take a shit in your face.



    Basically you plan your attack plan, move all the guys you want into places you think are going to be great, at the same time the enemy is doing the same exact thing. You both don't know each others plans. when your both satisfied it runs both of your plans against eachother at the same time.

    It isn't nearly as original as the designers would like you to think. Games such as Global Diplomacy were employing near-identical concepts more than a generation ago in a board game or PBEM format. It's certainly a concept that isn't particularly common these days and will seem new to a lot of people.

    If they do it right, it works very well and will force players to think in new and innovative ways (new and innovative to them, at least). As someone who was an avid Global Diplomacy player in my college days -- those days being a long, long time in the past now -- I hope they can pull the mechanics off properly because this looks like a game I'd pick up and play.
