The latest system requirements News for Frozen Synapse
Full system requirements for Frozen Synapse reported on May-23-2011

It seems to be a time of Indie gaming, what with the recent emergent success of Terraria last week and now the awesome looking game known as Frozen Synapse. We have been watching Frozen synapse for about a year now and it is shaping up to be pretty darned fun.

You are given a short amount of time to plot the next 10-20 seconds of strategy against another squad of enemy stick men with various guns. Snipers cover close quarter guys, heavy weapons blow holes in walls and so on. Once the carnage is played out you plot the next handful of seconds. Here is a discription taken from the devs site...
