Frozen Endzone, Mode 7’s sci-fi turn-based take on American football, has been rebranded Frozen Cortex and significantly updated, the developer announced.
According to joint managing director Paul Taylor, there are three reasons for the game’s rebrand. “The original name was a bit rubbish and we got bored of it,” he wrote in a post on the company’s blog. “We think the game looks better like this,” and that “some people thought we were making a Madden game with robots: that is not what we’re doing.”
Updates include OS X and Linux versions of the game, new animations, five new stadiums, a “completely overhauled AI,” and a variety of “UI” improvements. All the tweaks and changes are listed on Mode 7’s most recent blog post and can be seen being demonstrated int he video embedded above.
Frozen Cortex is available through Steam Early Access.
