15th December 2009, London, UK: Origin8 are pleased to introduce the latest iPhone/iPod Touch project from the team behind the award winning "Sentinel" tower defence games. Their third sci fi strategy game "Space Station: Frontier" has been submitted to Apple and is currently awaiting approval.
Set a century after the events of "Sentinel 2: Earth Defense", "Space Station: Frontier" sees the player in charge of a deep space mining operation in dangerous territory on the edge of Solar System. By constructing and powering networks of mining tools and weaponry– centred on the titular space station– players must juggle resource harvesting with the defence of their station against hordes of hostile alien ships.
"Space Station: Frontier" introduces a persistent upgrade system wherein the player purchases benefits and technologies that remain available across all game modes, essentially "levelling up" their station. Game modes consist of a mission-based campaign and a number of open-ended scenarios where players can compete for local or global high scores.
"Space Station: Frontier" includes full high scores and achievements from the OpenFeint social gaming network, and sound effects and music from veteran audio studio Earcom.

The team's breakout game, "Sentinel: Mars Defense" is currently free for a limited period in the run up to Christmas. It is available from the App Store at http://itunes.com/app/sentinel.
