Positech Games announce the release of Gratuitous Tank Battles, and the follow-up to Gratuitous Space Battles is available on its official website, GamersGate, GameStop PC Downloads, and Steam.
Here's the game's launch trailer (Hosted by YouTube - 03:17), and here's word:
GTB is the 'not-exactly-a-sequel' to indie hit 'Gratuitous Space Battles'. Unlike GSB, which featured hands-off battles, GTB borrows more from the tower defense genre. Unlike any other tower defense game, Gratuitous Tank Battles gives the player the choice of playing defender OR attacker on every single map. It also incorporates customised unit design and a built-in map editor and map-sharing online 'challenge' system which results in an near-limitless amount of gameplay.
In a further unique twist, Gratuitous Tank Battles even supports saving out a recording of your attack, and playing against your own decisions in the defense role. Every unit in the game is designed from base components, meaning you will never get entirely used to the units the enemy will throw at you. You have the option to play GTB as a normal tower defense game, with scripted attacking enemies, or you can even select 'adaptive' AI which places attacking (or defending) units in reaction to the players decisions. If you allow it, the AI can even re-use units that you designed to attack you with... This is like no other tower defense game you have played.
