As anyone who’s followed our blog would well know, it’s the eve of the ba- I mean, release of Fruitbat Factory’s first release, War of the Human Tanks.
Tomorrow we’ll be fixing up release-related details with the distributors and hoping nothing goes too catastrophically wrong. If it does, you’ll be the first ones to know. Especially if you were the first one to order the game and run into whatever catastrophe awaits.
On that note, here’s another countdown illustration courtesy of Angie (@9aia).
Everyone’s favorite Human Tank, Heshiko, is all set and ready for action.
Lock and roll!
In other news, as part of our ongoing Steam Greenlight efforts, we are looking into providing everyone who previously purchased the game a Steam key as well when War of the Human Tanks makes it into Steam. It’s definitely something we want to do, but we need to check the practical execution with each of our distributors so as to not make false promises. So far Desura has confirmed we’ll be able to do this. We’ll keep you posted with future developments.
Every vote on Steam Greenlight counts (towards something. I think)!
With the release of War of the Human Tanks so close by, I can’t help posting again. Lets start with the new artwork from Angie (@9aia), presenting Choko from War of the Human Tanks.
Choko is always full of energy!
Since we’ve been getting some questions about what we will be selling and where, here’s a recap of our release schedule on 14th.
