Default Sentinel 4: Dark Star - coming 2014 from Origin8

New beta screenshots here on our blog, or click the thumbnails below.









GAME INFO
CURRENT ETA: SOON



Sentinel 4: Dark Star is now officially in development! I'll be keeping this thread up to date with the latest from the crew, and we'll be relying on your comments and feedback to help us make the best Sentinel game yet.

For starters, check out our teaser blog post. That should be enough to get some speculation going

FAQ (ongoing)

Sentinel what?
The Sentinel games are a hugely successful sci-fi tower defence series. Sentinel: Mars Defense started it all back in February 2009, and was followed by Sentinel 2: Earth Defense and Sentinel 3: Homeworld. Sentinel games can now be found on iOS, Android, PC and Mac.

Sentinel when?
Our current estimate is simply when it's done, and we'll keep you updated as we get closer to completion.

Sentinel on what?
Device requirements aren't yet set in stone, but we're currently targeting the iPhone 3GS up and iOS 4.3 up. Some fancier graphical effects may be reserved for higher end devices. For those of you interested in other platforms, an Android port is definitely on the cards; PC, Mac and others are under consideration.

Good to see some happy fans!

In case you haven't spotted it, we're running a FREEBIE on Sentinel 3: Homeworld in celebration this weekend, so those of you who want to know what all the fuss is about can get a taste of Sentinel for a big fat $0. We'll get you hooked in time for Sentinel 4

We've just posted the first in our development blog series. Sentinel coder Paul Jackman takes a look at how the game maps have evolved over the series, and what's new in Sentinel 4: Sentinel 4 Dev Blog: Groundwork

We've come a long way from pencils and graph paper!

Sentinel 4: Dark Star competition – Suggest a name, win the game!

Sentinel 4: Dark Star has a whole heap of new enemy critters, but while we've got their looks and in-game abilities pinned down, their names are another matter. We're turning to you, our trusty playerbase, to help us out with your suggestions. We'll pick our favourite to use in-game, and the winner will also receive a copy of the game on iOS at launch!

First up, we have this energetic chap:



His placeholder name is the “Debilitator”, which... yeah, doesn't sound great. I'm sure you can come up with something better. Take a look at his skill set for inspiration:

- His special power is his lightning attack, which temporarily disables any towers it hits. Nasty.
- He also has a standard melee move to deal with obstacles in his path, such as barriers or the Commander.
- As befits his insubstantial look, he explodes in a shower of energy on death instead of leaving a corpse.
- He'll usually (but not exclusively) be found providing support for other types of alien in a wave.

There are plenty of ways to enter, so pick your favourite:

- Simply post in this thread. Easy!
- Comment on this post on the official Origin8 blog
- Tweet your entry @Origin8 with the hashtag #Sentinel4
- Comment on this post on Facebook

Make sure we'll be able to contact you in the event that you win!

Entries close midnight GMT on Friday 10th January 2014.

(and yes, I know I need to get a mod to update the thread title )
