The uniquely delightful Frozen Synapse was my pick for strategy game of the year in 2011, due to a refreshing combination of simultaneous play, impressive tactical depth, and a beautiful soundtrack — so the news that Mode 7 games are back with a new, similar game called Frozen Endzone is music to my ears.
Themed around similar mechanics, Frozen Endzone instead appears to be some intriguing combination of American football and cyborg warfare — instead of wiping out your opponent, the idea is to design a play that will get the ball into your opponent’s endzone during your turn, while your opponent of course tries to predict and counter you. A trailer has been released, and it looks sublime.
If you’d like to see it on Steam, you can vote for it on Greenlight here.
