Description

Ever wondered which of your friends could protect you with their eyes closed? Find out in Sentree - a cooperative, physical mobile game for 2 or more players about keeping a cool head and helping each other survive through the night in a dark, unfriendly forest. In Sentree, the Hero protects the tiny Antlers with her bulky flashlight that shoots light beams, which scares increasingly aggressive monsters back into hiding. However, the Hero (or shooter) is unable to see these monstrous apparitions, and must rely on the Antlers to point her in the right direction. The Antlers (or spotters), can see everything, but cannot defend themselves. In the real world, this means that the player with the role of the shooter is holding a smartphone and can fire, reload and aim, while the spotter or spotters are looking at a tablet device with a depiction of the game world. Sentree hinges entirely on communication between players. Mastering Sentree will require you to build or draw on trust relationships, and at the same time offers an engaging way to entertain people at a party.

History

Sentree is based on a student prototype named Zumbie. Zumbie introduced us to the idea of using inter-player communication as a core mechanic and using a mobile phone as a remote input device. With Sentree, Glitchnap is trying to highlight the things that made the prototype so much fun to play at events, while adding the layer of depth, narrative and aesthetics that the concept deserves.

Features

  • A new take on traditional blindfold folk games.
  • Shouting and physical movement creates a spectacle that is as fun to watch as it is to play.
  • Many players can participate.
  • Simple and intuitive gameplay that can be learned by anyone in 10 seconds (shoot is tap, shake is reload).
  • Find out which one of your friends is most likely to buckle under stress.
