Skövde, Sweden. 9 May, 2013. Super Sanctum TD is a 2D retro take on the Tower Defense genre. The release of Super Sanctum TD seems like a surprise attack out of nowhere from Swedish developer Coffee Stain Studios which has their main game, Sanctum 2 scheduled for release 15 May 2013.
Without any forewarning, Super Sanctum TD appeared up for purchase for $3.99 on Steam. It’s also included completely for free for everyone that pre-orders Sanctum 2. The release trailer for Super Sanctum TD can be viewed on the following youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YsKC0T-PSA&feature=youtu.be
"We love Tower Defense games at Coffee Stain, so why not make a traditional, but super cool and retro one? With Super Sanctum TD, we try appeal to a wider audience and let them discover the über cool Sanctum universe" - Says Anton Westbergh, CEO of Coffee Stain and producer of the game.
“We’ve been secretly developing Super Sanctum TD for quite a while now. We never had a set release date for it since we always thought we’d release it when it’s done. Coincidentally, we felt “somewhat done” with the game roughly when the pre-orders for Sanctum 2 started, so we figured why not?” - Says Armin Ibrisagic, PR Manager of Coffee Stain Studios.
The objective in Super Sanctum TD is to build advanced mazes and towers to protect the Core from hordes of aliens. Contrary to many other Tower Defense titles, it also includes an active skill system that lets you intercept your enemies manually by using skills like Freeze and Air Strike to tilt the battlefield to your advantage. Other features such as the in-game perk system and vast customization options sets it apart as a more premium title compared to other games from the same genre.
