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…

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…

Sci-Free: Sanctum Adds Medals, Gets F2P Weekend

Sanctum 2 is suggestively eyeing 2013 from across the crowded, deafening-dubstep-blaring bar that is time, but the first in its tower defending lineage hasn't gone into cryogenic stasis just yet. Via its IndieDB page, Coffee Stain Studios has announced all sorts of free goodies, just because. Well, maybe not all of the sorts, but those of the progression-based medal and boss-fight-introducing map varieties - so basically the…

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…

Indie Royale: How’d It Work Out?

What's going on? Is everyone alright? What are the arguments of the day? I've been on holiday (but travelling no further than my own front room, alas) for the last week and all this seems bewildering and strange. Big, blank white space to write words about PC games into, a buggered RSS feed to try and fix - right, I can do this, it's okay.…

Bundles Of Love: Indie Royale Site Launches

The indie scene is full of what a corporate sort might call Price-Costing Thought-Thinks. There's an increasing trend wherein developers are offering early versions for sale to fund development, as well as offering 'pay what you want' initiatives and joining collections like The Humble Indie Bundle. Now, the indie aficionados behind Indiegames.com and the fine fellows at digital distribution service Desura have launched Indie Royale,…

WIN: Sanctum Steam Codes!

Sanctum, the ludicrously pretty first-person tower defence game which we exposed to our critical bits just here, can be won right here, right now! Yes, a dozen lucky RPS-reading webnodes will be able to plug themselves into the game by emailing us the answer to this question: the word "sanctum" means holy site. What is your holy site, readers? You know, the one you would…

Sanctum Gets 4-Player Co-op, 75% Off

You might remember that scintillating pretty FPS-tower defence hybrid Sanctum rather tickled our fancy. Quinns said: "It’s the single best tower defense game I can remember playing since Defense Grid: The Awakening." And it was already co-op, but now it's 4-way co-op thanks to a new patch. And even more enticingly it's now 75% off in the Steam summer sale. £2.50! That is only 250…

Ace Of Space: Sanctum Gets New Level

I'm a fan of indie tower defence FPS Sanctum, what with it ticking off the four Quinns food groups (dramatic, interesting, full of personality and cheap), and you can even hear me talking about it a bit too fast on the latest Three Moves Ahead podcast. I am, therefore, glad to announce that the developers have rolled out the first of the promised free content…

Sanctum Is A FPSTD, Has Beta

That's first-person shooter tower defence, of course. Sanctum, a UDK-powered project that we reported on some time ago, is now fully evolved up into a commercial project and has a pre-order-based beta going up on Steam. Want to know a bit more? Well, there's a detailed video below, which explains how you set up your game in a classic tower-defence building phase before taking on…

The Eye-ful Tower Defence: Sanctum

There's increasing amounts of interesting UDK stuff trickling out. I haven't had a shot at this, but it's conceptually pure enough to appeal. Sanctum is another mod-turned-stand-alone, and it's basically a tower-defence game in first person. This immediately makes me think of the late 90s wave of action/strategy games, which of course makes me somewhat fuzzy and nostalgic, before that warm feeling gets crushed with…
