In a way, it’s unfair of me to rely so heavily on comparison to other space-based or RTS indie games, because The Sentient carves out its own definite identity with its excellent slow-moving instrumental score, its thematic stress on pacifism and survival, and its particular art style.
...the retro graphics, ambient soundtrack and thoughtful management mechanics make it worth checking out - especially if you’ve ever wanted to be EDI from “Mass Effect 2.”
Gorgeous presentation, art style, and don’t get me started about the music - meditative and mindful - perfect for studying and concentration. Overall - a polished piece of indie gaming that you should be proud of.
I enjoy this music! I like the music very much!
Samantha Foster’s music plays a large role in creating that mood. Her score is playfully spooky. Eerie yet also fanciful and fun. Its fast pace sweeps us from room to room, like a haunted house ride that doesn’t want the audience to catch its breath.
With a captivating soundtrack providing a spooky, yet holistic tone, the story has a strange way of matching with the ups and downs of the enthralling melodies.
