Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Sanctum 2 - New towers!

4 comments by Arminposts on Jan 25th, 2013

Towers are the cold and hard machines standing between the LOEK III colonists and their certain death. They are the first and last barrier between Core Guardians and the scourge of lumniscient aliens in the horizon. 

We had tons of ideas for Sanctum 1 that we wanted to add, but never had the time or money to make. That's why we're very excited to show you the Focus Laser and the Amp spire!

The Focus Laser fires a continous laser capable of punching through the hardest armor. The longer it stays on the same target, the thicker and more powerful its laser becomes. It can easily smash through the hard exoskeletons of the new enemies in Sanctum 2, but is less effective against smaller and faster foes.

The Amp Spire produces a field around it that increases all damage done by nearby towers. The more it's upgraded, the bigger the damage bonus and range becomes. If you adjust your maze to accomodate Amp Spires at the right places, this tower can be one of your best allies against the horde of Lumes dead set on destroying your Core!

We've recently polished the demo of Sanctum a little since we entered the Indie Game Challenge and we thought it'd be a good idea to release the new demo...

I find the creators of this game very inspiring, as when I'm older I want to take up game making as a possible career/hobby, as I've wanted to do that since I was around 5 years old. I'd also really like to know what game engine they used to make sanctum, because I think the graphics are great! So, as I started with, I find the creaters of this indie inspiring role models, and hope to turn out like them one day!

It's because the Yogscast are friends with the developers of Sanctum. If I'm correct.

"Sanctum has taken the best features of first person shooters and tower defense games to create something totally unique". sorry iron grip: warlords already did that and is arguebly better but the demo provides a free text to voice system that i find amuseing.
