Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game may or may not change significantly over the course of development. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you may want to wait until the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Sentris is core-complete and already a lot of fun to play and explore. Even so, it's a highly experimental project with a very ambitious goal of balancing elements of both a puzzle game and a musical instrument. Because this balance is so difficult to achieve, including the community in finding the best possible shape for the final version of the game is incredibly important. Early Access provides this possibility.

Sentris was a successful Kickstarter project and the backers of the game have already been providing great feedback leading up to this point. The game is ready for a wider audience to play, make more music, provide more feedback, and help improve it until the final version. Involving the community of players in this process is critical to making the final version as good as it can be.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“The final version of the game should be finished before April 2015.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Sentris will grow toward the full version by adding features during Early Access:
  • Even more puzzles with varying degrees of difficulty
  • Backgrounds with more motion and richness in response to music
  • More instruments
  • Local Multiplayer mode
  • More options and toggles for gameplay customization
  • Export your song to WAV format
  • Level Editor & custom level sharing
  • Workshop support

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access includes the core game experience:
  • Several challenging puzzle levels
  • Beautiful backgrounds with multiple color schemes
  • Great-sounding instruments: Guitar, Bass, Synth, and Drums
  • Customizable options and toggles for gameplay customization

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of Sentris will not change after Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Building community is really important for Sentris. I want to hear the songs that everyone makes. I want to see the amazing levels that players build themselves. I want to invite everyone to provide feedback and suggestions for the game so I can make it as great as possible for release! I'm very open to hearing any kinds of suggestions for how to improve the game, what already works well, what's missing, and anything else the players want to share.”

About the Game

Sentris is a new kind of music game that puts you at the epicenter of musical creation. It transforms the act of making music into a puzzle of colorful concentric circles. It's a rhythmical challenge that enables personal musical expression. The music you make with Sentris is your own authentic creation to enjoy and share.

Create your own song as you drop Sound Blocks of different instruments, pitches, and lengths into a looping grid. To solve the puzzles, fill highlighted areas of the grid with specific colors or rhythms. Its simplicity is deceptive -- fitting all of the right Sound Blocks into the right place at the same time can be extremely difficult.

One of the more original games I played at Pax Prime. Love the music, composition, and how they are interwoven with game play. Took me a while to figure out the objective of the puzzle, yet, with every note, I was thoroughly enjoying the music.

Early Access Review
Sentris, in its current state, is hard to recommend based on the twenty dollar price tag. The menu, if you can call it that, is extremely bare bones. There’s no in-game option menu that would otherwise allow you to adjust audio volumes and the like, though the Unity Engine does feature a separate pop-up on launch that allows you to adjust screen resolution, graphics quality, and full screen. There are no instructions or tutorials at present, plopping players into an environment that they’ll have to figure out on their own. I do praise the theme behind the project and would really like to see what it’ll be like when it’s officially done. I’m giving it a “thumbs up” on the idea alone, but if you’re strapped for cash, I’d wait for a few more patches / content updates. It’s an Early Access game, so it goes without saying that the above opinions are subject to change.

This is only at Alpha 1 right now, but there's something really cool here. It's a puzzle game that makes you make music. Even when I'm not focusing on rhythm or paying attention to the kind of wave the piece I place is, the end of each puzzle is always a pleasant song. There's at least 3 more songs coming, but the 6 in the game right now are fun to play and tweak.

It might be worth waiting for more features before you buy it, but it's a fun, relaxing concept. A little like Cosmic DJ minus all the silliness.
I'm really looking forward to seeing this develop.
