Interview with a Fruitbat

So Last Gen, who earlier did a review on War of the Human Tanks by the tile of I love the Smell of Napalm in the Morning asked us for an interview. We had fun answering their questions about the secrets behind the Fruitbats.

For your eyes only: Interview with a Dev: Fruitbat Factory.

They even published some photos of us, though this one seems a little obstructed.

Also, another stage of the five-chapter “Let’s Play” guide for War of the Human Tanks is now up. This time it might even be helpful!

Where can you find it, you ask?

As usual, the guide can be found at: Chapter 4: ‘Kana Was Awesomely Awesome’

The Fuse is Lit

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)!

Incoming!

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.

War of the Human Tanks, the game itself, will be sold for $9.99. Sound of the Human Tanks I, the first soundtrack compilation, will be sold for $3.99. And War of the Human Tanks Deluxe, containing both the game and soundtrack, will be sold for $11.99.

Of course, we are selling the Deluxe bundle for $9.99 for as long as the pre-orders last.

War of the Human Tanks and War of the Human Tanks Deluxe will be available from Desura. War of the Human Tanks, Sound of the Human Tanks I and War of the Human Tanks Deluxe will be available from Gamersgate. War of the Human Tanks will also be available from Indievania, and Sound of the Human Tanks I will be available separately from Bandcamp.

Green Man Gaming will feature War of the Human Tanks soon after.

And with your support on Steam Greenlight, War of the Human Tanks, Sound of the Human Tanks I and War of the Human Tanks Deluxe will be available on Steam one day as well.

Note: The prices may vary slightly depending on your region.
