Greater Than Games has a rich library of cooperative games and recently took their flagship series into competitive waters. Sentinel Tactics blew their kickstarter goals out of the water with its recent successful campaign. Despite being a competitive game, its scenarios require cooperation as the teams of heroes and villains face off in a super powered throwdown. During our interview with lead designer, Christopher Badell, we were told a lot of the ideas behind this series and the rich world it lives in. Greater Than Games also plans to launch a series of tournaments for Sentinel Tactics and intends to truly embrace a competitive scene for the game as they continue to flesh out everyone’s favorite Sentinels Comics characters.
Also mentioned was quite a bit of info for their recent preorder campaign for the next expansion in the Sentinels card game: Wrath of the Cosmos. Christopher was happy to mention their upcoming foray into the digital front as the base set of Sentinels of the Multiverse will be available as a video game for iPad and Android tablets initially. We were also told about an upcoming worker placement game titled “Spirit Island”, where players will play as awakened spirits fighting against the development of their island and the board will try to develop the city as the game progresses.
It’s a very exciting time to be Greater Than Games, but it’s even more exciting to be a player of their games. With a few expansions left for Sentinels of the Multiverse and a whole wealth of future options for Sentinel Tactics, as well as several other IPs coming out, there is hardly anywhere left for this company to go it seems but up.
