Sanctum 2’s “Ruins Of Brightholme” Incoming

The first DLC for Coffee Stain's first-person tower defense sequel, Sanctum 2, is materialising in the shadows of a grimmer version of the game world. According to the devs, Ruins Of Brightholme "takes you to a darker side of the Sanctum universe", and the images they've sent over (more below) seem to confirm that. New towers are "Makeshift Cannon" and "Rupture Mine Tower", and new…

Buckets And Spades: Sanctum 2 Adds Sandbox Mode

The lovely people at Coffee Stain Studios have given their first person tower defence game Sanctum 2 a big giant patch with lots of lovely new updates in it, like pausing (I love a good pause) (.........) and a sandbox, so get out your bucket and spade! What is a sanctum really, you might ask, besides a word that sci fi and fantasy games love…

Enter Their Safe Arms: Sanctum 2 Demo

Very soon I will have finished the first ever Virtual Novel RTS game. This follows hot on the heels of my first ever top-down football manager (you can see the very thin lines of the top edges of the graphs), and the first ever basketball third-person shooter. I WILL CORNER ALL MARKETS! Unfortunately, beating me to the first ever FPS tower defence game (or so…

Feature: A Holding Pattern

Sanctum 2 review

Sanctum was something of a rocket out of left field. There's nothing unusual about tower defence, of course, and the “action” tower defence genre is now setting itself up as a thing, but Sanctum's tight sci-fi world and solid feel set it apart from either tower defence games or FPS titles. That meant popularity, and a lot of players. Sanctum 2, meanwhile, attempts to place…

The Secret Of Super Sanctum TD

Sanctum 2's release is hovering over us like a drone, and that's a good thing, because Dr Smith rather enjoyed the original game, and I've got a kick out of what I've played so far of that shiny sequel. However, there is already something else with the Sanctum name on it on the Steam store page, and that's Super Sanctum TD. And this where things…

Going On The Defensive: Sanctum 2’s First Trailer

Sanctum 2, the follow-up to Coffee Stain Studios' first-person tower defense titan, has been a known quantity for quite some time now - at least, insofar as we know that we know very little about how it all comes together. Sure, Coffee Stain's been running a rather expansive dev blog, but games are sometimes known for their gameplay. Or so I have heard. But enough…

Gimme Shelter: Sanctum 2 In Motion (Probably)

Is this first footage from boots-on-the-ground tower defence sequel Sanctum 2 in-game or pre-rendered? Don't ask me, I'm rapidly losing the ability to tell. Last week Jim showed me an Arma 3 video and I genuinely had to ask if it was from a game or a real recording, even though it featured a man being fired into the sky. I worry about myself, I…

In Spiritum Sequitur: Sanctum 2 Announced

Top notch first-person space tower defense malarkey, Sanctum, is going to have a baby! Imagine that. The offspring will take the form of a sequel, which is going to dally with the consoles on the sly but if it's as enjoyable as the original, I'm sure that won't stop us from greeting it with delighted 'awwws' and dreadful babyspeak. Work has already begun at Coffee…
