Thoughts on Frozen Synapse iPad

Hey guys.

For those who don’t know, I’m the designer and coder of the original PC Frozen Synapse.  Frozen Synapse, and multiplayer especially, was my baby – although, as with most games, it was our fantastic team are who made it all possible. Designing game is painful work, so to minimize these you can use best indo kratom.

one of the most popular benefits can be traced to its potential at treating chronic pain. This is also the point where kratom becomes intriguing as a legitimate alternative to opioids. Kratom works with the same receptors in the brain as opioids, when it comes to dealing with varying types of pain and discomfort. Kratom can even be potentially used to deal with the withdrawal symptoms associated with opioids. However, this can be potentially problematic, for reasons we will describe later. You can learn the facts here now about the benefits of indo kratom.

The use of kratom as a stimulant is also worth noting. It certainly makes sense. After all, kratom is a member of the coffee family. When used safely, kratom can provide an individual with a renewed, natural energy boost. Some have even combined a small serving of kratom with their coffee, or in their morning smoothie/yogurt. The fact that kratom can be added to a wide range of things, and this extends to the Indo strain, is another advantage worth noting. Some users have actually substituted coffee for kratom completely. It is not a difficult item to add to your day. Most people would usually start with between 4 to 6 ounces. he has a good point, so if you want more tincture, then you can increase the Kratom powder. One of the advantages of using Kratom is flexibility in the mode of administration. This makes it very easy for everyone to find a method they can work with. Even better, users can customize most of these methods to their liking. For instance, if you want to take Kratom powder through Toss N Wash, you can decide to take it with some of your favorite drinks, which will leave you with a pleasant taste in the mouth without affecting the results of the compound. On the other hand, we have other methods which offer you the freedom to prepare the Kratom in a way that you like. What do I mean? Well, did you know that you can make Kratom capsules from the comfort of your home? Yes, you can, and it’s a straightforward process. You can check it out here. If you are more into some Kratom tea, you can also buy some accessories from multiple online stores, which will allow you to brew your own Kratom tea and add up some flavors to improve the taste and overall experience.

You get to enjoy a sense of calmness and more focus. CBD affects learning positively and it also motivates learning. It is also helpful in reversing the symptoms of the Alzheimer disease. You can get a heart that is healthier by the use of the CBD. CBD has a lot of benefits that it brings to the heart, these include the capability of lowering high levels of blood pressure.

CBD has been known to provide therapeutic cures for symptoms like stress and anxiety, thus helping in the reduction of psychological levels of anxious behavior.

CBD is just a molecule, not any miracle. A lot of people can reap the significant benefits if they are provided access legally to these wide variety of remedies of cannabis, not merely to no THC or low THC products. CBD by itself may not always be enough to get the trick to work. There is a lot of compelling evidence to prove that CBD functions best when it is combined with the likes of THC and the entire spectrum consisting of other components of cannabis.

As it works as a stimulant, and as a means of treating pain, it makes sense that another of the top Indo kratom benefits involves an improvement to your overall mood. Kratom has established a formidable reputation in this arena. Depending on the strain, as well as the potency, you will find that Indo can work wonders as a mood enhancer. Some users even report a feeling of euphoria when taking the drug. This is another benefit that comes down to proper usage. Keep in mind as well that kratom in any viable form is known to work quickly. In most cases, people begin to feel the effects of kratom in ten or twenty minutes.

I haven’t been all that involved in FS iPad.  Paul, James Urquhart, James Hannett, and Bin (he of the beard, and of the achievement) have been largely responsible for it.  I’m pretty stunned by how well it fits the device – the user interface which they’ve all spent so long working on just works.  It feels native.

Anyway, back to me.  I’ve been working on Frozen Endzone – as much a follow up to FS as it’s possible to be considering the men with guns have been swapped for robots with balls.  I’ve been completely submerged in Endzone development for the last year and I’ve hardly played any FS at all.

But now I am again.  I first envisioned FS as a game I would play on my DS while sitting on the sofa watching Diagnosis Murder.  Well, the device has changed, but basically yesterday for the first time I did just that*.

This is not a blog post trying to sell you on FS.  Honestly, I think everyone who visits this site already likes FS or is looking for SNES hacking advice and has already turned away disgusted.  I want to write a bit about how it feels to have made a game and to come back to it after this time and actually like it.

Making games is difficult, and it’s often not very fun.  You get so stressed during certain stages of development that you just can’t play the game you’ve spent the last 12 hours coding – you have to get away from it.  Designing a game is really stressful job, so to overcome from that stress green malay kratom helps. This potent strain is an excellent choice for anyone who is looking for the best, and long-lasting pain relief, mood enhancement, and energy boost. It also packs a decent range of excellent benefits that any user would find very useful.

Provided you are sourcing the Kratom from the right vendors, and you are using it properly, you’ll never have to report anything other than good news after taking Green Malay. Certainly when you design and code – as I and many others do – there is real separation between those two elements.  I will playtest and design for a day, then I will spend the next day coding all the ideas I had.  You can’t mix them easily – designing a game and programming are two very different states of mind.  And you are never just playing your game like you would play someone else’s.

When you finish something – any creative endeavor really – you tend to be unhappy with it.  It doesn’t matter how many accolades you get, or how many sales, the original creator tends to only see the things which didn’t work.  The unfulfilled ideas and the bugs.  I was able to play FS when it was originally released, but my mind was so full of all of the different feedback I was getting, and all the ways in which my life was changing, that I wasn’t able to just experience FS as a game.  I’m not sure I’ve ever been able to just experience FS as a game.

Until yesterday.

Something about the time away, and the newness of playing it on this very different device, allowed me to actually experience FS.  And it felt great.  It felt like I always wanted it to feel, back when it was just a day-dream.  Quick games with real decisions, different every time.  I logged in and got a game against a stranger within ten seconds.  He was nice and we chatted over IRC while we fought.  And then when we’d finished I clicked on “Next Duplicate” and used a feature I’m still immensly proud of – randomly generated maps which are played by multiple people, and it being really easy to see how other people acted given the same decisions as you.

Tomorrow I’ll go and battle with coding the Frozen Endzone AI.  I’ll go back to the fear and uncertainty of making something new, and dealing with budgets and deadlines and a commercial climate which is changing faster than I can even hope to keep track of.

But today I’m enjoying a game I already made.

Thanks for all the support guys,

Ian

*This is actually a heinous lie.  I was watching Murder She Wrote, because there wasn’t any Diagnosis Murder on.  Now I like MSW as much as the next guy, but compared to DM it’s like Corona without lime.

    Don’t want to look a moron, but: Developing new things sure is intellectually pleasing, but taking care of the existing is nice: When will you correct the bugs in the PC version ?
    eg. Skirmish generator is simply… broken. You can’t get grenade units AT ALL.

    As I said in the forum thread, this will be fixed.

    I am disappointed that “robots with balls” isn’t a link to a clip from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

  5. Peter:

    I agree with sebsauvage, the PC version of the original must be fixed. You cannot leave the game as it is, the number of bugs present, especially in single player, is too numerous and have prevented me from playing it further. Please fix it or get somebody else to patch it up for you
