Frozen Synapse Demo and Sale

A playable single-player Windows demo is now available for Frozen Synapse, offering a sample of Mode 7's simultaneous turn-based strategy game. The demo includes a randomly generated Skirmish along with three "specially selected" missions from the single-player campaign. The demo is available on Steam, where the game is also on sale for 50% off through Monday. There is also a standalone demo, and this is mirrored on AtomicGamer and Worthplaying, and Mac users should not despair that there's no OS X demo yet for the multiplatform game, as word is: "A Mac demo will follow very soon once its surface becomes so shiny that small insects slide comically along when they attempt to land on it."

I suck at this game, but I don't regret buying it and supporting them.

It's fun, but I do tend to get my ass handed to me.

How popular is the multiplayer? I won't need to spend twenty minutes trying to get a game going or anything will I?

I played it a week or two after it launched, and while I didn't play multi, I got tons of invites until I turned it off. Your stats/profile are stored per server, and there's several different servers to connect to (and I believe it prompts you every time you log in).

You can also do a sort of "play by email" option, where you and another player can take turns over days or weeks. So if you have a friend in mind to play, each time a player makes a turn, I believe the other gets notified.
