I'm referring of course to indie group Mode 7's upcoming Frozen Endzone, which can now be tried by anyone who's willing to give the developers a vote of confidence by way of a pre-order.
The game looks pretty much the same as it did at the time of its official announcement in March, only this time, you actually get to play the damn thing — provided you pick one of the many pre-order tiers featured on the game's website. At the cheapest tier, it's $US25 for two game keys, which both give access to the current beta, and eventually nets you (and a friend, loved one, etc.) the full game.
Of course, you could also pay $US5000 to name and give your likeness to an important in-game NPC, if that's your thing. Regardless, Frozen Endzone arrives on PC next year. As for whether you should pre-order — take a look at the trailer above to decide.
