Steam Summer Sale
The sentient is currently participating in the steam summer sale right. Check it out and jump in early and help shape the game.
The final alien race is getting fully put in now and should hopefully be in the patch next week. This new alien race has its own personality and traits that should hopefully become evident the more you play. Once the new alien race is in additional alien communications can be added to help enhance the overall game experience.
Each race has their own styles and attack patterns that respond to your responses with them. Its exciting to get to the point where a lot of this can finally be shown to players now that the corner has been passed as far as bugs so keep an eye out for the patch notes next week.
