Tank it! trailer

A trailer is live for Bplus’ Tank it!, which the indie developer intends to make for NX next year. Check it out below.

Indie developer has announced “Tank it!”, a simulation war game. It’s described as “a realistic and bloody war simulation game designed to show how brutal and dangerous war really is”.

Here’s an overview of the game:

“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.”

Tank it! will be out on Steam this fall, but Bplus will be looking to have it ready on NX next year. View some art below.

PuzzleBox Setup came to 3DS a little over a year ago. Bplus is now working on a “successor” of that title for Steam, which the developer is looking to have on NX as well.

Creator Bernd Geiblinger told one fan on Facebook the following when asked if an update to the 3DS version is planned to bring it in line with the Steam version:

“Not possible, this game is made for NX but modified to be released on Steam earlier, because sadly I’m not able to wait til NX and need to release this game soon.”

Geiblinger added that the Steam version will continue to grow with updates, and it will be possible to create levels that can be shared with NX players. Also, Bplus intends for the NX version to make use of eight colors as opposed to Steam’s limit of four thanks to the controls, “which opens possibilities to completely different pictures and modes for NX version.”

Here’s a look at the new version of PuzzleBox Setup:

Finally, regarding Bplus’ other 3DS game/franchise Bit Boy!!, Geiblinger teased the following for NX:

“You will definitely see Kubi traveling back to the old Bit-Eras on NX. Stay tuned. Cannot talk about something specific before Nintendo announces the new platform.”

It’s unclear how much Bplus actually knows about NX. It’s also unknown whether or not the indie developer currently has access to a development kit for the system.
