Bplus announces anti-war game Tank it! for Steam and Nintendo NX

Vienna, Austria – September 2, 2016 –Independent game developer, Bplus, announces Tank it! - A new war simulation game with the message #WarKills.

Tank it! is a realistic and bloody war simulation game designed to show how brutal and dangerous war really is… that it is no good... that countless civilians are killed as collateral damage.

In Tank it! you command a drone to remotely control a heavy tank. You receive the mission to travel to remote villages, find and destroy the target military camps and eliminate all terrorists. But as in real life, there are many civilians in the villages, as well. The terrorists and civilians alike are at the player’s mercy. It is up to the player alone to decide how to handle this mission.

Bernd Geiblinger: "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."

Trailer coming soon.

Tank it! storms to Steam in Fall 2016, and Nintendo NX in 2017.

I'm wondering if they actually have a devkit or it's more of a speculative announcement, hoping to get a devkit by the end of this year. Probably the latter.

Yeah, came here to say that. Nintendo is being so secretive about NX that I highly doubt small companies have access to a dev kit

That being said, I liked the conecpt of the game, but if they are willing to sell it for a very low price, it probably will be made with a very low budget, so I'm not really expecting much from this one.

Nice seeing a small studio wanting to make a game for the NX though.

Definitely the latter. Nobody (off the street) can apply for NX dev kits right now. They still just offer Wii U and 3DS with "nothing to announce about NX at this time."

Weird that random indies are talking about NX more than AAA developers are.

^Less red tape... lol

Sounds like an intriguing game.
