Cliff Harris, Positech Games’ sole makes elaborate strategy and simulation video games like Gratuitous Space Battles, Democracy 2 and Kudos 2. Gratuitous Tank Battles takes place in a alternative version of future earth where the great war (WW1) still rages on. The game contains elements of strategy, tower defense and real time management game mechanics.
Here’s Positech Games Description of Gratuitous Tank Battles:
Gratuitous Tank Battles, the alternate history ‘World-War-1-with mechs’ strategy game has entered Beta, and is available for pre-orders NOW. Gratuitous Tank battles is a new PC strategy game that blends the best bits of tower-defense, real-time-strategy and simulation / management games. A spiritual (if not actual) successor to Gratuitous Space Battles, GTB takes the tower defence genre by the scruff of the neck and stamps on it with heavily armored mechs-feet.
GTB differs from conventional Tower Defense in many ways. Firstly, you can play either side (attack/defense), secondly all the units are customised both simulation-wise and visually. Thirdly, the game has a built in map-editor and map-sharing feature to encourage widespread custom-map-making. Fourthly, GTB lets you save out your own attacking decisions, then play against them as defender. And lastly, the game also features optional ‘adaptive’ AI rather than just pre-scripted waves of enemies (although these are available as well).
Set during an alternate future where world war one never ended, and continues to be fought with mechs and laser-tanks, GTB blends hardcore strategy gaming with a light-hearted sarcastic sense of humour. The war has raged for 200 years, but our superior officers are convinced it will all be over this Christmas, however many poor beggars have to be crushed into the dirt to make that happen.
