Siege of Centauri – Preview and Q&A With Lead Designer Derek Paxton

Niche Gamer Plays is an ongoing video preview series where our staff take an in-depth and yet concise look at classic, current, and upcoming games across all current gaming platforms.

The latest preview video we’ve prepped up for you all is for Stardock’s latest game – Siege of Centauri.

Featured above, you can find a preview I held with lead designer Derek Paxton, where we play the game, talk up its features, and answered fan questions live.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Siege of Centauri puts you in command of the defense of Earth’s first interstellar colony. Thousands of alien machines are descending on the helpless colony and only you, with your arsenal of fast-deployed orbital defense structures (FODS) can stop them.

The enemy comes in all shapes and sizes, challenging you to counter them with the right defense in the right place. Siege of Centauri combines the best elements of classic tower defense games with the strategic depth Stardock has delivered in past titles, including Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion and Ashes of the Singularity.

Battle across the surface of an alien world through a series of story-driven campaigns or fight for survival in a doomed region to see how your skills match up against thousands of other players across the world.

Siege of Centauri is now available for Windows PC (via Steam Early Access) for $9.99. The game is expected to leave early access sometime in Q3 of this year.
