Sanctuary: Shattered Sun will feature three factions - just like Supreme Commander did. They are EDA (think UEF). The Chosen (I'm feeling the Aeon) and The Guard (giving off strong cybernetic Cybran vibes). Details below: Earth Defence Alliance A human-first coalition dedicated to the rights and sovereignty of all of its citizens. Formed over a century of corruption, wealth disparity and a need for unification, the EDA rose up to become the de-facto governing body in staunch opposition to the Chosen. To some, they are oppressive sectarians. To others, they are mankind’s only hope. The EDA favors efficiency over the elaborate designs of their enemies. Commanding vast human populations and innumerable resources, their might is slow to...
In a move which Unity Create president Marc Whitten states is to "make more money", the video game software development company has announced plan pricing and packaging updates. Starting in January 2024, Unity will introduce a new cost called the "Unity Runtime Fee." This fee is based on the number of users who install games created using Unity as their game engine. The fee applies once certain revenue and installation milestones are reached, depending on your subscription plan: Unity Personal and Unity Plus users will start paying the fee once a project reaches $200,000 in revenue over 12 months and has 200,000 total installs. Unity Pro and Unity Enterprise users have a higher threshold: the fee applies when a project earns $1...
On Friday I had the opportunity to sit down the Nine2 and Special_Bread to discuss what happened when Sanctuary: Shattered Sun took a trip to PAX AUS ’23. The resulting conversation, as happens when talking to two people passionate about their product, took many tangents, many wrong turns, lots of diversions and ultimately came down to what you see in the following article. [TL;DR summary: PAX was incredible… Kickstarter possible before July 2024… Beta to Patreon Supporters first… Demo with Kickstarter will be a mini-campaign… Early Access on Steam a year after Kickstarter… Enhearten Media roadmap features fourteen games… Possibly working on another title in a few months… Investors welcome…] Al: Tell me about the PAX experience...
Here at Shattered Sun RTS we have been blessed with the development team taking notice of what the community has been asking for. Developer, Nine2, has been busy letting us know some of the confirmed features for Sanctuary Shattered Sun that people might not know about and might not expect, so without further ado, let's get to it: Infinite Terrain: "Our super genius art peoples have been hard at work delivering infinite terrain - there is no map border. Only part of the map is playable, after that it just keeps going off into the distance, no hard maps edge." Unlike Supreme Commander, which had a hard and fake looking border, the maps in Sanctuary are much more realistic with the maps simply fading into the distance rather that...
The most recent developer update went up on July 1st and is a fantastic opportunity to take a sneak-peak at some newly added units and environments to fight over. Hey there everyone! We've been putting in the hours on Sanctuary: Shattered Sun and we're excited to show you what we've been up to. New units have been added to the game, bringing greater diversity and strategic depth. Here's some images of just some of the units we have been adding: The Guard faction has had over a dozen units added in recent time, and here are just a couple of them. The Chosen have also seen some new units, among them is this tier 4 hovering bot! Shown next to the commander for scale! We've expanded the horizons of our Dyson Sphere with the addition...

The year is 2758 and the near complete megastructure known as Sanctuary embraces the Sun. This gargantuan, multifaceted metal-platform now shelters over a trillion lives. Alas, Sanctuary is far from the idealised paradise it was meant to be. Great chasms of serrated metal teeth gnaw hungrily into the vast expanse of space – evidence of the Mooncrash and countless ongoing battles. War ravaged shells of cities stand exposed to the darkness of space, looming over scorched earth and barren wastelands – painful reminders of better days, long past. Despite Sanctuary’s turmoil, not all is consumed by warfare. The vastness of Sanctuary has allowed some of its inhabitants to escape the chaos surrounding them by retreating into unmarred cities...
