The first game from Double Eleven’s new publishing venture, D11 Games, has been announced. It’s a PS3 and PS Vita version of PC title Frozen Synapse, called Frozen Synapse: Tactics. The original PC version has sold over 430,000 copies and scored really well critically.
“Frozen Synapse for us represents some of the best work coming out of the UK and onto the PC. We know there’s also a great console game in there as well waiting to be realised.” said Mark South, COO for Double Eleven. South claims that “Frozen Synapse: Tactics is not simply a transition of the original onto console” and promises to give the game a “complete Double Eleven makeover.”

Mode 7′s Paul Taylor said that the original “proved that turn-based strategy doesn’t have to be about people with misguided beards prodding tanks into lonely hexagons,” whilst Shahid Ahmad, Senior Business Development Manager at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, said Sony have a “fantastic relationship with Double Eleven” and are behind their publishing ventures.
Double Eleven previously worked on the wonderful LittleBigPlanet PS Vita.
