In The Sentient, you play as an artificial intelligence who is asked to help mankind’s failing space exploration plans. Being able to process data relatively quickly you are tasked with bringing as much research and knowledge back to Earth via an orbital station known as "The Ark." At the Ark, you are able to recruit a crew, alter the layout of your ship, and perform research to improve current and new technology in order to aid you on future missions. When away from the Ark, your decisions can result in the life or death of not only your ship but of your crew. Space is a vast unknown so everything must be discovered in order to attempt to work with or against aliens.

Key Features:
1) Procedurally-generated: Explore unpredictable sectors of space.
2) Choose a crew: Recruit a crew with perks and daily needs. Train them well and become stronger.
3) Fully-customizable ship: Design and optimize the complete layout of your ship - from the number of shield generators to toilets. Everything is in your hands!
4) Ship-to-ship combat (based on ship designs and crew capabilities): Not able to withstand enough damage? Increase the number of shield generators and shield consoles. Not enough damage output? Increase the number of weapon tanks and weapon consoles.
5) Ongoing research: Gain research usable in upgrading weaponry, ship stats and capabilities.

The Sentient reviews and comments

Translated by

Early access review I came across this game by hazard, I let myself be seduced by its small launch price not even €10. I was not expecting a grad hit, and yet it is a FTL with micro management of the crew. Here we bring his ship as it pleases, we recruit a crew whose only limit is the number of beds of our residential Quatier, good to know the crews WINS XP and it is up to us to divide this gain!. We run the day of work of our little man, then we launch qualque researches and we left for the exploration of the universe unknown to us. In the program meeting of the 3rd type friends but also enemies and there the fight commits our fellow afoulle or not c is also according to their character. Exploration with beacon discovery and other tags (and there or not). Then back to starbase to refuel suplies before returning to new discoveries, our mission to discover new forms of life, new civilization and the meprit of danger advancing towards the unknown..... A playful game that is I remind him in alpha what promises us once the app finished a good little game. Fly safe!!

Early Access Review Subscribe to the CURATOR See passing games about survival on YOUTUBE CHANNEL This game can you enjoy if:-Liked the FTL-love games-managers with indirect control-love difficult games where you have to think-love novels Robert Heinlein-wanted to be a captain of a spaceship-Cosmonautica seemed too casual. In My opinion-this is one of the best games in this genre. It is a Pity that while it seems to be poorly sold-on the day of writing the review sold only about 600 copies. The Game is something like a mix of Cosmonautica + Sims + FTL. There is a great atmosphere and a nice pixel art (albeit unpretentious). The Game still needs to be finalized, there are bugs, but now you can have fun. You arrange all the cabins and recruit staff. Staff Have a lot of parameters that determine, for example, whether he will be a workaholic or, on the contrary, will try to get away from work or be late for his shift. An Improperly chosen crew or armament can have fatal consequences. Very Cool playing with classical music. Liked: + characters are unique, with their Persians and skills + space fights are made excellent + roguelike, in which you have to think. + Sci-Fi setting + micro-management on a minimum-once tuned the instructions and then only control + more involvement in the game than in FTL, where the ship and the teams were betrayed more schematically. Did not like:-Bugs (characters get stuck in the elevator; still sometimes, for a while, the AI is cut down)-so far few events-need a little rework of the interface in the direction of convenience Subscribe to my CURATOR PAGE See passing games about survival, Horroach and Space ON MY CHANNEL
