Positech Games released this Alpha trailer for Gratuitous Tank Battles, their next pc game scheduled for a Q1 2012 release. This video shows the attack and defense perspectives of the game described as a RTS/Tower-Defense/Attack/Management/plan-em-up game. Gratuitous Tank Battles is an attempt to bridge traditional tower defense gameplay with Real-Time-Strategy games and the online challenge and unit-design capabilities of cliffs previous game ‘Gratuitous Space Battles’. GSB was a pc gaming success story, selling over 100,000 copies, and spawning a thriving modding community.
Positech states that GTB is inspired partly by Cliff’s (the self apppointed leader of Positech staffed only by person named Cliff), unhealthy obsession with tanks, and the fact that they rattle the windows on his home office when they test-fire them on salisbury plain near his house. He once nearly caused a self-propelled gun to tip on it’s side when going round a corner on a ‘drive-a-tank’ day. That’s how keen he is. Keep this guy away from your tank please.
