Sentinel 4: Dark Star - coming 2014 from Origin8

Sentinel 4: Dark Star is APPROVED and launches THURSDAY 14th AUGUST!

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







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

Yes! Epic! I have bought the first three games and can't wait now!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

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!

New dev blog is up!

Today Paul takes a look at a couple of new mechanics for towers. Your long serving weaponry will now be more valuable than ever, but your enemies will make you work for your bonuses...
