Bplus, an Independent game development company from Austria, has just announced their new game Tank It! that will be releasing for Steam and the Nintendo NX. Bplus’s other games include Bit Boy!, Puzzle Box that was released on Steam back in April, and Rock ‘n’ Ball.
Tank It! is a simulation game where you remote control a heavy tank that you will take on missions through remote villages. Your aim is to track down military camps and take out all of the terrorists. The catch here though is that there are also plenty of civilians in these villages. Unlike other games where you don’t need to worry about hurting invincible NPCs in Tank It! both the terrorists and the villagers are at your mercy. It will be up to the player to pick how they want to approach each mission and if they’re going to be able to save all of the innocents.
Upon announcing his game Bernd Geiblinger, founder of Bplus and sole employee, had the following to say:
I for one do not enjoy playing brutal, bloody games, so for me it is painful to create death animations and blood. I did everything else before I did this kind of work – but I am doing it for the message. This is also why Tank it! will be available for a very low value – For me it is much more important to spread the message of the game than to earn a great deal of revenue.
No other news has been revealed about the game except for its planned 2017 release and that a trailer for the game will be releasing soon. If you want to stay up to date on this game then be sure to check out Bplus’ Official Website or their Twitter.
What do you think of a game where you need to watch out for the civilians? Would you be interested to try this simulation?
