What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want your feedback NOW, not later. ;)
We're just a two-person team at MindWalker Games, and Sentinels has been a labor of love for the past 5 years. And while we're happy with the progress that we've made, we know we can do much better with your input!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’re aiming for late 2019.”

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

“More levels, structures, weapon mods, enemies… more everything! There'll also be a much better tutorial, and of course a few metric tons of polish.
You'll also notice a lack of EA-only features in the fully released game… because everyone who joins up early will unlock a bunch of exclusive stuff that no one else will.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Solid… wait, no, liquid? Now it’s gaseous… it’s getting hot in here!!

Dad jokes aside, it’s stable and the framerate is pretty good. We have most of the core mechanics we want in there, and people seem to be having fun.
There’s a lot to learn in this game - but we’ve been working on this for so long, we sometimes can’t see the forest for the trees. Having new eyeballs are helpful, so you can tell us what’s well explained, and what’s… slightly less so.
Oh, and there are bugs... that's an exciting metagame we added just for Early Access players. :)”

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

“Yes, early access players are receiving a hefty discount (as well as 7 karma points and a virtual hug). It will likely double before release, so now's a good time to get it!”

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

“We want the community as involved as possible, this game is for you guys! You can find us on twitter, indiedb, and facebook; other than needing sleep on rare occasions, we’re always accessible and want to hear what you have to say.”

About This Game

Sentinels: Tower Defense with an Upgrade!

So you love Tower Defense, you love First Person Shooters, and you want both at the same time? Well, we got you covered, Sentinels combines the two into an action packed game like no other. While your automated towers dutifully destroy enemies, you can use manual structures and special abilities to dismantle them from above, or jump into the fray and shoot them down yourself!

Key Features:

  • More than 20 Structures, Weapons, and Specials - Diverse set of tools that’s growing all the time! Includes Flame Throwers, Lasers, Magnetic Bombs, Heat Waves, and the oh so cute Rift Wraith.
  • 3 Game Modes - In Skyguard mode you’ll put down your gun to become a tactical master, Onslaught mode delivers relentless action with structures built for you, and Sentinels will demand you to bring all your reflexes and tactics to the table in the ultimate tower defense and FPS hybrid.
  • Persistent Upgrades and Mods - Unlock a dizzying array of loadout options with mods for all item types. Boost critical damage, targeting range, and blast radius to name a few, so you can build the perfect kill zone.
  • Over 30 creep types - Stealth enemies, healers, shield generators, there's no shortage of angry robots for you to turn to scrap! Beware... They can shoot at you too, but we packed in plenty of ways for you to deal with that :).
  • 5 enemy commanders - Face off against enemy commanders with unique abilities and unit modifications, adding a whole new level of replayability.
  • Multiple Map Encounters - Complete multiple encounters per map. Map layouts and enemy properties change, giving you ample opportunity to test your wits and climb the leaderboards.
  • Endless Mode - Survive as long as you can against relentless waves of enemies.
