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.

Sanctum beta on steam soon. New video series called Sanctum Features!

Posted by Oscar_Jilsén on Mar 21st, 2011

It’s been a month since our last update and we have been working very hard to make sure the game enters Beta with as few bugs as possible. Tonight we’ll send the beta version to Steam and it is scheduled to go live this Thursday.

To entertain you all until the beta is scheduled to go live we’re making a series of videos, giving you a sneak peek at some of the features in Sanctum. The first video is about a very central part of Sanctum, namely the Build System.

We’ll be updating with these videos every week, so check back in a week for another video!

Sanctum looks really great, you're Swedish right?

If you're Swedish may I ask at which school you study, I'm thinking about studying at Skövde at 2012.

Yup, we're swedish all right. We actually went to Skövde all of us. The game started as a school-project mod. We graduated last year, so there's definitely talent to be found at the school ;)

i wish i could play this!. the only thing that bugs me is the editing button, it stands out compared to all the style of the game. something like a holographic display on a pda or something would have been cool.
