Skövde, Sweden – May 4, 2012 – Coffee Stain Studios is once again teaming up with the masters of humor over at The Yogscast to bring a brand new map in the form of free DLC to its much talked about first-person shooter/tower defense hybrid, Sanctum, available now on Steam. (http://store.steampowered.com/app/91609).
The Yogscast crew has been fans and big supporters of Sanctum since its launch, and made multiple videos. Coffee Stain has included the cast in making their latest map, in which Simon and Lewis lend their voices. The map also contains a frightening new boss mob to take down, adding a whole new gameplay element! Appropriately titled “The Yogscave”, the DLC is available now at the Sanctum Steam page and costs absolutely nothing, so make sure to download it and catch some of the various eggs. Also, check out the awesome video of the Yogscast guys trying out the new map here:
Simon, Lewis and the rest of The Yogscast crew bring their signature ‘Joffo Cake’ fuelled humor to this Yogscave DLC map. As the ruling elite in Elysion One, the brightsiders live a life of decadence, but this luxury comes at a terrible cost to the less fortunate members of society, who toil in factories below the surface – securing minerals to craft weapons to defend against invaders. Simon and Lewis are two miners who have found themselves on the night-shift to end all night-shifts. After Simon’s “amazing” idea to increase Joffo Cake storage by 46% by diverting power from the core’s energy containment shielding, the night was off to a great start! Unfortunately this idea backfired as the reduced shielding attracted unwanted attention from some of the Yogscave’s more sinister denizens. The invaders are different this time, they appear to be organized by some far more nefarious mind…
Experienced at dealing with the odd Barret Bat and Blessed Boar here and there, Simon and Lewis are still unable stop these invaders and require your help! Can you save the world? And more importantly can you save the Joffo Cakes?!
Sanctum is a fresh take on the tower defense genre and places the player right into the frenetic fray with tight first-person shooter gameplay mechanics. Gamers take the role as Skye, an elite soldier sent out to protect her home town, Elysion One, from hordes of mysterious alien creatures. To successfully defend your land, you must construct and upgrade a labyrinth of defensive structures and towers. When the havoc starts and the wave of baddies is unleashed, you jump right into the action with your own fully-upgradeable weapons and play a key role in the defense. Sanctum has taken the best features from FPSs and tower defense games to create something totally unique.
