Siege of Centauri Announced

1Stardock announces Siege of Centauri, a tower defense game set in the Ashes of the Singularity universe that will soon enter Early Access. They call this a new take on the genre, and the Stardock website has details and screenshots. The announcement they sent along covers the same topic differently:

As the commander of the defense of Earth's first colony, players must determine the best strategy to save the colony from the tens of thousands of alien machines that are rapidly approaching. Each victory against the enemy expands the colony to a new part of the planet which, in turn, is met by an increasing aggression by the enemy.

We first got the idea for the game while developing Ashes of the Singularity. With the engine's ability to handle tens of thousands of units, we wanted to design the ultimate tower defense game. Siege of Centauri incorporates classic features from the tower defense genre and combines it with the unique features and capabilities first seen in Ashes of the Singularity.

With our engine, there were so many new gameplay elements we could add. For instance, our engine supports hundreds of simultaneous light sources allowing us to design interesting choices for players when it comes to map vision. Similarly, by supporting so many units, we can make defense choices in different situations much more compelling, as there is a big difference between choosing a weapon that eliminates one unit at a time versus one that is designed to take out hundreds at a time.

Not to mention that it looks really cheap...not Dungeon of the Endless kind of cute and cheap...just cheap.
It looks like some Ashes maps, quickly thrown together with the map editor, just to show a tower defense concept.

I like an occasional tower defense. The maps shown in the screenshots don't look interesting. Not a large number of tower types either.
