Siege of Centauri Announced


#6

Looks like some units are actually moving on the ground not just hovering like AotS.

" Now, I have been studying these reports from the front lines. You’ll note the plural form— lines . Is there anyone along our border with whom we are not currently at war?"


#8

I’m a little sad because I thought this was going to be about an Alpha Centauri sequel.


#9

So is this game Brad kept promising @kael would be here “soon” to get our opinions about? Kind of blah on Stardock anymore, but I do love me some TD, and I trust @kael will make it awesome. Don’t know if I want tons of DLC for a TD game, as Stardock likes to do nowadays, though.


#10

I am a little sad that Brad isn’t here.


#11

I first read this thread on my phone and didn’t explore the game further than this thread. But it turns out there’s screenshots too, and I like seeing them in gaming threads for new titles. So I’ll share a couple from the same link the rest of us can click just in case someone else hates clicking external links as much as I do.




#12

I’m always down for some good Tower Defense games. added to list


#13

What does this add to the genre? It’s a serious question: what makes this stand out from others? I’ve been playing some X-Morph: Defense (since its release on GOG) and it’s loads of fun to fly around, build towers, etc., with a top-notch presentation. This looks like bog-standard TD with the same drab look that Ashes has – so what does it do that makes it maybe worth taking a look at?

Also: I don’t give a damn about graphics/game engines.


#14

Well, Tatiora says it’s a new take on the genre. So maybe there’s a surprise waiting to be revealed. As long as it’s not just 2~4 player PvP modes there’s a chance it could do something interesting.


#15

I’ll definitely share more info as it becomes available!


#16

Thanks! I know many of us will be looking forward to that.


#17

40-player pvp mode, it’s TD Royale.


#18

Now that’s what I’m missing in my life.


#19

Been year since last I was hooked on a TD game. Will be interesting to see how this one pans out.

The Founder’s Program for Siege of Centauri will launch on March 28th, which will let you play a beta version of the game.

Here’s an excerpt from the forum post:

“With tens of thousands of enemy machines pouring toward your base, we want to give players a very new experience of what it means to defend yourselves against overwhelming odds,” said Derek Paxton, lead designer of Siege of Centauri . “It takes little explaining to the player on the benefits between a rail gun that fires 1 deadly round every 10 seconds, and a high-speed plasma arc array that does low damage, but to dozens of enemies at once, when you can visibly see a huge mothership surrounded by hundreds of escorts coming at you.”

You can read the full deal here.

You sieged my Centauri!


#22

I love this screenshot of the game. Really gives you a feel for the scope and mass of enemies.

I’m going to sign up for the Founders Program today. Cannot wait.


#23

The Ashes founder program is paying for itself in spades.


#24

I haven’t seen mentioned and I asked on their forums but got no reply, will this be a Steam game?


#25

That’s a good question, and I don’t know myself.

Not an official source, but this website mentioned a Steam Early Access launch.
