Frozen Synapse is coming to iPad in 2012

Frozen Synapse is coming to iPad in 2012

Yes, that’s right, we caved under the pressure!

This has been in the works for a while – we still have a lot of work to do on the interface as well as some additional tweaks, but then it’ll be time for beta.

We’re hoping that it’ll be out in the first half of next year – we’ll be more specific about that eventually!

I should mention that you will definitely be able to play cross-platform with the iPad version.

Finally, I don’t want people to worry that we’re going to abandon FS on its current platforms – we’re actually working right now to hire another team member so we can give it more attention and update it more efficiently.

We gave the guys who turned up to our pub meet in Nottingham a sneak peek of the current iPad build!  Here are some photos…

  2. BreakDown:

    if i ever buy an ipad it will be only for FS.

  3. Hawk:

    I knew it!

    I don’t have an iPad but this surely will be nice for others.

  4. nabeel:

    Congratulations! FS will be awesome for tablets provided you can translate the UI well. Are you considering a port to Android tablets as well?

  5. Ian:

    Nabeel, not at this time as it’s such a harder thing due to all the different formats.

  6. icebrain:

    Will it be on iPad 2 only or iPad 1 as well ?
    What about on iPhone ? much bigger market

  7. Claire Blackshaw:

    Aaaw here was me hoping for an HTML5 interface which could work on all tablets and devices. ;)

    Seriously though your making me want an iPad. I LOVE FS but never seem to have time at home on my machine to play it. Sooo tempting…

  8. John:

    That’s great! I would love to see it on iPhone as well since I don’t have an iPad.

  9. cassus:

    Guess I’m going to buy it on the iPad as well then. I’m okay with that, I suppose. Supporting indie devs is fine by me. Going to be released around the time the iPad 3 hits the streets then?

  10. Kevin:

    So, is the iPad version going to exist as a separate server than the PC version? Or can everyone play together?

  11. Paul:

    “I should mention that you will definitely be able to play cross-platform with the iPad version.”

  12. Kevin:

    durr, totally missed that!

  13. Plon:

    Great news ! Frozen synapse will be a really great game to play on ipad ! Loved this news !

  14. Toeofdoom:

    Sounds really cool, since I ended up with an ipad 2 for some reason.

    I do wonder a bit about the controls – they can be a bit fiddly with the accuracy of a mouse. Also only having wireless/3g internet means that booting people to the main menu for a temporary disconnect could be more of a problem than it currently is.
