Coffee Stain Studios became overwhelmed at the positive responses to their trailer for Goat Simulator. It was just a silly thing that was created from a one-month gamejam. So they decided to clean it up and release it commercially. The result is a hilarious spoof on Simulator-type games that lasts the length of a sugar rush.
Coffee Stain Studios and Reverb Publishing today launched a new game mode to the PC version of Sanctum 2, the sequel to the world’s first tower defense/first person shooter hybrid. “Sandbox Mode” will allow users to access any unlocked levels with the following options:
• Endless waves of enemies
• Customizable resources gained
• Customizable enemy HP
• Enables players to turn the tower cap on or off
“We continually want to improve our game based on feedback we get from our community. Sanctum 2 is our biggest project yet, so we want to make it as great as possible with help from our player base,” says Armin Ibrisagic, PR Manager & Game Designer for Coffee Stain Studios. ”It’s our way of thanking players for supporting us!”

Renown indie development team Coffee Stain Studios announced today that Sanctum 2, the sequel to the first-ever true hybrid of tower-defense and first-person shooter genres, is now available worldwide on Xbox Live for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.
“We built Sanctum 2 from the ground up, creating stunning visuals while keeping everything that players loved from the original,” said Anton Westberg, CEO of Coffee Stain Studios. “We then added more characters, more enemies, more bosses, more levels, more weapons and more towers to make Sanctum 2 bigger, better and badder than we ever imagined.”
Coffee Stain Studios’ first entry in 2011 with Sanctum was an absolute surprise and interesting twist on tower defense. When in the building phase, you were placing defenses from an overhead view. Then, when in battle, play from the first-person perspective similar to a shooter. The game was supported by a lot of paid DLC, and some free DLC. The co-op multiplayer was fun as well. They’ve been hard at work for a sequel, and have announced a release date.
Acclaimed indie developer Coffee Stain Studios announced today that Sanctum 2 will launch worldwide on May 15, 2013 simultaneously for Xbox Live for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. The PlayStation Network version will launch soon thereafter.
