Star Sentinel Tactics, a squad-level turn-based tactics game with a scifi theme, is nearing completion, and will soon be made available to beta testers. I would like to take this opportunity to invite a handful of ModDB members to join the beta team.

Star Sentinel Tactics puts the player in control of a squad of United Alliance Marines, aka The Star Sentinels™, as they battle to prevent a race of bloodthirsty reptilians from launching a devastating attack on our Galaxy.

Screen2


Star Sentinel Tactics takes the proven gameplay of turn-based tactical combat, and invigorates it with exciting new ideas like eliminating CPU turn waiting, dynamic battles and narrative-driven missions. As well as dazzling 3D graphics and line-of-sight driven by a powerful physics engine, the game offers a cast of captivating characters and creatures, and an array of explosive weaponry. Each of the 28 hand-crafted missions will offer players a unique tactical challenge, from creeping silently past patrols in a dusty desert city to providing cover for heavy assault troops as they raid an alien mothership.

Screen3


Star Sentinel Tactics runs on Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7, and will be released in Q1, 2010. The beta testing is scheduled to begin in November, 2009.

Please only apply if you're serious about beta testing, and intend to play it extensively and provide feedback. To apply, simply send me a PM with your system specifications and an email address.

I thought this game was dead, but it seems like there's still life left in this project. It looks like the last months have been rather hard on the developer, but according to the official site the game may see the light of day soon.

Check out the official site here: Starsentineltactics.com

If you want updates I suggest you follow his Twitter (I personally don't use Twitter so I have no idea how that stuff actually works), or keep track of the official site.

After some research, I found out that it has been released, although both the official homepage and MODDB neglects to recognise it >_>

Matrix games apparently released it as a digital item.

I don't yet know where the game will be available to buy. I would prefer to offer it as a digital download, but I don't want any obtrusive DRM. Assuming I can find a distributor that uses little or no DRM (eg: some kind of one-off server-based authentication would be ok) then I'll use them. If not, I'll sell it directly from my own site.
