Gratuitous Tank Battles Expands To The Western Front

Gratuitous Tank Battles returns to the beginnings of the war that has raged for more than two centuries with The Western Front expansion. Eight new maps form the terrain for a new singleplayer campaign, the first half of which limits technology to the metal monstrosities of 1914-45, removing the lasers, mechs and shields of future times. Thankfully, the Tigers, Shermans and other tanks added to…

Gratuitous Tank Battles Demo Rolls Into View

Cliffski's game of tank (and mech!) battles now has a demo, as per his strict policy of producing a demo for every game he puts out. You can pick it up from the game's own site, or from the GTB page on Steam. The demo contains a sample of the game's two-way tower defence action, where you can choose to build the defences, or to…

Gratuitous Tank Battles Steams Up, Honest Trailer

Cliffski's complex take on the tower-defence genre has arrived on Steam (and can still of course be purchased directly from the developer) and that event has been celebrate with a bombastic new trailer, which you can see below. Well, I say bombastic, and that's true of the battle bits, but it is also honest, showing you a quiet bit where Cliff is clicking through the…

Wot I Think: Gratuitous Tank Battles

In my experience there's only one way to assess a corridor-bound RTS. You place it at one end of a winding word-road, line that road with all manner of critical gun turrets, then push the muzzle of a Webley service revolver into the small of the game's back and bark “Get moving!”. Gratuitous Tank Battles...“Get moving!”

Over The Top: Gratuitous Tank Battles Beta Release

Development Shell: Gratuitous Tank Battles

If there's one thing better than tanks fighting it out, it's tanks fighting it out for no reason other than because they are tanks. Let Tanks Be Tanks should be the subtitle of Cliffski's RTS, Gratuitous Tank Battles. Followed by three exclamation, because nothing says gratuitous than '!!!'. Even the sound in this video is gratuitous: Cliffski has recorded 7 minutes of the game playing,…

Treadnaughts: Gratuitous Tank Battles

Hello 2012! The observant among you may have noticed that I appeared to write something yesterday but I actually wrote that in 2011. Yesterday, I was still in a burrow eating the last needles of the Christmas tree in preparation for emergence. The first thing I saw as my eyes adjusted to the light was a developer diary for Gratuitous Tank Battles, so I brought…

Entrenched: Gratuitous Tank Battles Diary

The lovely Cliffski has put up a new developer diary detailing the forthcoming Gratuitous Tank Battles, this time talking about what exactly Gratuitous Tank Battles is. Which appears to be a blend of the sensibilities of previous fleet commander sim Gratuitous Space Battles with the pathfinding of a tower defence game. No, quiet in the back there, settle down. It isn't your typical tower defence…

Host In Space: Gratuitous Space Battles DLC

Observant eyes may have noticed that there’s a new expansion out for Gratuitous Space Battles, the fleet building slice of indie goodness from Positech. While this fresh bit of DLC doesn’t add any new game modes, it does add 10 new ships, three new pieces of equipment and a new scenario. The new ships belong to the titular Parasites faction, who sound very unpleasant indeed.…

Revealed: Gratuitous Tank Battles

Today we got to see Positech's sequel to Gratuitous Space Battles for the first time. Logically enough it was called Gratuitous Tank Battles, because it features a multitude of tanks, and even robots. However, it was very nearly called Gratuitous Trench Battles, and even "Over The Top", and you can find out why by reading on, below...
