Sanctum is the world's first FPS tower defense game and is set in a beautiful science fiction world. You take the role of Skye, an elite soldier sent out to protect her hometown, Elysion One, from hordes of mysterious alien creatures. To facilitate your success you construct defensive structures and upgrade handheld weapons. Jump right into the fray and wreak havoc with your own weapons - unlike regular tower defense games, you are a key part of the defense. Sanctum has taken the best features of first person shooters and tower defense games to create something totally unique.

It looks fun and all, but the price is too steep, imo...

Good luck, though.

Well that's your opinion, I haven't played the demo, but my opinion would be it's a perfectly fair price, it looks great, a lot of work went into it and I've seen worse games with crappier looks charge at least double.

I don't think I'll buy it, but it looks good enough to make me want it! But I'm not that into tower defense type games and I'd make me too distracted from my current development progress.

Really looks interesting, but i wish they would not use 1$=1€ conversion. Now i know none of my friends will buy it and me neither. As much as i would like to support you i can now only say - good luck with the sale.

Hehe.. Sad to hear that. It was really more of a decision to keep it plain and simple, like most other Steam games. And on top of that, €15 is still a very nice price.

Looks great guys! When I first looked at the screen I thought it looked a bit steep of price also but after reading through / watching all of the media I feel like it is certainly a reasonable price. I might pick up the coop pack, was never a huge tower defense buff but enjoyed Iron Grip and this looks very in-depth.

Thanks. yeah, we believe the price point is quite reasonable. Add the fact that Coffee Stain Studios are going to add content and keep working with the game also add up on the value.

We really care about our customers.

That's great to hear! It's been a while since I've seen a true indie game coming out that the developers seem interested in the community. Best of luck with development guys.

A little off topic here but the university you guys are from, is that anywhere near Göteborg? A friend of mine is studying abroad over there so just curious :)

Thank you Pierre!

A little off topic, but yes, it's quite near. About 150 km
