A lot of people have been talking about endings recently.
So we decided to take some community suggestions and change the ending of FS…
Here is a video of the new ending (thanks Dongulator), which obviously contains spoilers:
If you want to see this without completing the game, you need to download the update and then do this:
Open the console with `
Close the console with ‘
If you are a Linux user, here’s Jimmeh to tell you how to update…
“Linux users can download the update from http://updates.mode7games.com/frozensynapse/fs_newending.zip
All they have to do is extract that zip file to the same directory they installed Frozen Synapse to (i.e. the one that contains the binary and the psychoff directory).”
This is not a criticism of Bioware or anything they have said / done. It is an experiment: I wanted to know how this felt. Honestly, it felt like vandalising my own work, which was interesting.
We took community suggestions about ponies and dinosaurs, as well as including the words “moist” and “dolphin-proof”.
The new ending will be around for about a week before it will disappear, and probably only be accessible as an easter-egg.
I am calling for other game developers to do this because I think it is a fascinating and weird thing to do.
Hope you like.
