Has anyone here tried Frozen Synapse? It looks interesting, but there isn't a demo, and at GBP20 (ish) it's a bit pricey for me to take a risk on without knowing whether I'll like it. Alternatively, if no-one has tried it, it's half-price on Steam for today only, and you get a free copy to give to a friend; at a fiver each I'm willing to give it a try....

I know the people who made it and they certainly put their heart and soul into it, been in development for 2.5 years, about a year of that being beta tested. I played a version aaages ago and it was a cool sort-of laser squad style turn based tactical shooter. A lot of work went into the single player game (which I haven't tried), so it has some single player hours to it, even if you can't get an online match or you just get hammered online (more likely:) ).

Sounds good, although it doesn't entirely answer my question about whether anyone wants to go halves on two copies Smile

Yeah; the game only comes in pairs of copies (which seems like a weird marketing decision to me, but may work, who knows). Anyone out there with a spare copy and no friends who'd like to change both parts? Wink

I think it makes sense, the biggest problem facing an indie multiplayer game is finding anyone to play with. Indie games usually don't sell anywhere near enough to guarantee finding someone online when you want to play and of similar ability. Giving away a free copy with every sale doubles the chance.

That depends on whether you view it as giving away a free copy with every sale, or only selling the game in pairs. Frozen Synapse, at full price, is GBP20, and you get a free copy to give to a friend. But for that to work, they need to be making more than half the number of sales they'd make at GBP10 with no free spare. So the question is what proportion of potential buyers the price difference puts off. Well, and the whole psychological issue of how many people view it as "selling pairs" (probably rare, I know I'm weird) and how many think "ooh, free stuff".

I'd be interested to know what actually works best, but the only way to find out is to run an experiment in several otherwise identical universes simultaneously, and we don't seem to have the technology for that yet Smile

Half price again, and now there is a demo. And the demo is awesome.

Edit: or even cheaper on Gamersgate.
