Retro gaming inspired shoot ‘em up Hyper Sentinel, which had been presented by UK games industry veteran Andrew Hewson, has managed to reach its Kickstarter target with 18 days still to go in the campaign. This means that gamers on Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC (via Steam), Android, iOS and Amazon will be able to get their hands on Hyper Sentinel this summer. Watch the new trailer below…
Hyper Sentinel has been created by indie developer Jonathan Port aka Four5Six Pixel who was so inspired by the shoot ‘em ups of his youth (Uridium, Cybernoid, Delta and Defender) that he has loaded the game with many references of those good old days. Hyper Sentinel will feature unique weapon upgrades and epic boss encounters.
In order for Hyper Sentinel to reach as large an audience as possible and be ported to multiple platforms Four5Six Pixel have partnered with new company Huey Games which has been founded by videogaming veteran Andrew Hewson (Uridium, Nebulus and Pinball Fantasies), Rob Hewson (Director on the handheld versions of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens and LEGO Batman 3) and John Ogden (Technical Lead on Hydrophobia).
Look out for Hyper Sentinel arriving in the summer.
