War of the Human Tanks… a best seller
4th place at the very best strategy games of 2012
Description
Release date: 14 Sep 2012
War of the Human Tanks is a story driven strategy game with a gameplay reminiscent of Battleship and Chess, featuring a story of war, loyalty, sacrifice and human shaped tanks.
Price: $9.99
Story:
This story takes place in a land vaguely reminiscent of modern-day Japan. In the twenty years since the first Human Tank was developed, the war raging between the Empire of Japon and the Kingdom of Japon has turned into a proxy war fought between Human Tanks on both sides.

The Empire of Japon once ruled the entire land of Japon. Now diminished and cornered, the Empire prepares to make its last stand as the tanks of the Kingdom of Japon draw close to its capital. Shoutaro Daihon’ei, Lieutenant of the Imperial Army moves out to the battlefield, followed closely by the loyal Human Tanks in his company.

4th place Top 10 Indie Strategy Games of 2012 (IndieGames)

88/100, Pelit recommends: A fast-paced and original strategy game that modernizes the classic game of Battleship. (Pelit magazine)

4.5/5 War of the Human Tanks is a truly excellent title. Despite some overly lengthy dialogue, the storytelling is engaging and humorous and it's matched with action which is a heck of a blast. (A Role Model - Paul Harrison)

8.5/10 War of the Human Tanks is a welcome addition to the tactical gamer's catalog. I think I'll be spending quite a bit of time with this one. (John Ahlberg - So Last Gen)

3.5/5 It's absolutely a worthy title in its own right. The character banter is thoroughly entertaining, augmented by solid combat. (Clark A. - Digitally Downloaded)

Different in a strangely appealing way; and as a wargame, it is nicely designed and quite tense. (Costik - Play This Thing)

If you're a military buff with a thing for anime then you'll definitely be interested in War of the Human Tanks. (Matthew Kim - Twinfinite)

If you are into Fire Emblem or Advance Wars, this will be a game you can buy without regrets. (Matt Broitman - Halfbeard's HUD)

It’s a weird mix of candy coated hyperactive “moe” madness and soulful ruminations on the socially problematic nature of tanks with minds of their own, and I can’t decide if it’s slightly brilliant or just the dumbest thing that’s ever happened. For whatever it’s worth, though, the translation seems competent. (Nathan Grayson - Rock, Paper, Shotgun)

Gaming thrives on its diversity (in both subject matter and mechanics), so if this title can fill an 'anime styled strategy game with musings on the expendable nature of soldiers and a neat line in twisted dialogue' shaped void then it's bound to make someone sit up and take notice. (Peter Parrish - incgamers.com)

While the action of the game is fast-paced and filled with blazing aggression, the battles are also very short and punctuated. They are an absolute joy, with fluid animations, barreling music that sets a strong tone, and really solid strategy mechanics. (AJ Dellinger - Gamezebo)

I'm going to keep playing this game because I want to. And if that doesn't express my feelings in the simplest of terms I don't know what will. (Alex Kende - GameTrender)

WAR OF THE HUMAN TANKS Is A Very Good Name (Alec Meer - Rock, Paper, Shotgun)

War of the Human Tanks est un jeu qui s'annonce impératif pour tous les fans de stratégie, d'Advance Wars et autre Fire Emblem. (Ripper - Game Side Story)

3.5/5 Pour un peu qu’on aime l’humour manga décalé et le chara-design SD, War of the Human Tanks est un jeu très attachant et sympathique. Ce qui n’enlève rien à ses combats demandant réflexion et stratégie pour atteindre la victoire et surtout limiter ses pertes. (Ever - Playitlive.fr)

8.5/10 Normalmente detesto los juegos de estrategia, los detesto con una increíble fuerza y son raros aquellos a los que les doy entrada mayor a1 semana en mi presencia pero War of Human Tanks se siente diferente,ya sea por su sencillez (en sistema y dificultad) o por su bien planteada historia "animesosa" ¡¡¡HUMAN TANKS ME HACE RECUPERAR LA FE!!! (XZero - Dangeru)

@.::AI | HiNoKi<3:
If you can tell about your problem in detail on our forums (http://forum.fruitbatfactory.com/viewforum.php?id=4) we might find a solution. All I can say at this point is that on our tests we haven't had any problems running the game FullScreen.

Congrats! Looking forward to trying it from the Groupees bundle once the steamkeys are released. Nice work on getting trading cards organised, will definitely mean more sales for you!

Is there a way to play full screen at 1920x1080? The setting won't stick and changing it in the System40 file doesn't resize anything, just makes a big black border and the dialogue boxes are out of place.
Blues Jan 10 @ 4:09pm 
I'm glad to hear that. Thanks for the prompt answer.
echoMateria [Fruitbat Factory]  [author] Jan 10 @ 4:00pm 
Yes, everyone who bought the game from a legal source, shops and bundles, will get their Steam keys from that same distributor when the dust settles.
Blues Jan 10 @ 3:55pm 
Hello, I got the game previously at RiceDigital, part of FunStock, would it qualify for a Steam key?
Congratulations on your release, it's been a long road.
Swonker Jan 10 @ 1:43pm 
Thank you for finally releasing the game. I appreciate all the hard work to get it on Steam.
I'll wait patiently for my key from Groupees.
