Description



In a world full of corruption and political struggles the voice of the weak is often left unheard. When people rebel against governments it is time to pick your side. Join the forces of newly created government and help them rise, or ally with loyalist forces aided by the intervention of one of the neighboring countries.






Challenge yourself in campaign against AI or battle your friends online or in a hot-seat mode, where you will fight for control of strategic locations by issuing commands to your infantry, tanks and air force.

Create your own maps using in-game map editor, then share them with the world.

Each 32x32 sprite was handcrafted in gorgeous, 32 color pixel art. Original music and sound effects were made on real GameBoy hardware. Game is open-source and runs smoothly thanks to Godot Engine.

We support Android tablets and phones, and all PC platforms (Windows/OSX/Linux). Unofficial, community build for Pandora Handheld is also available.

Ah, got it. So it is the latter. Priority based TBS sounds fun as well, we will consider that in our next game.

The We-Go principle as opposed to I-Go-U-Go.
Players simultaneously command their moves (priority based) instead of being next in turn.
If it's not We-Go, no man overboard. 'IGOUGO' certainly has its advantages too. :empire:

@X4MHD That is correct, though I'm not sure what you mean by WE-GO. We already playtested 1v1 using xbox gamepad by passing it between players, and it played well. We also got positive feedback when presenting this during PGA expo in Poland.

There is also a corespondence-style online multiplayer for more laid back, less interactive type of play. You can perform your turn, and then hop into another match, or just close the game.

For now there is only 1v1, and adding more players would take some reworking. We might do it eventually, but it is not a priority for now. Currently we are working on improving single player campaign to be more interesting and story driven.

As for new modes and units: modes are on the roadmap, new units are in the unplanned ideas section, though we already have designs.

I reckon this title is perfect for colleague play (playing at work, with & against eachother).
Map building, 1 vs 1. It is WE-GO TBS, right?

But also co-op (hot-seat) against extraterrestrials (different units, with leaderboard),
2 vs 2, 3 vs 3 and (same unit) AI vs 2+ (hot-seat co-op).
Different modes perhaps: Capture the Flag, Deathmatch, Wave counter, King of the Hill. :SPKing:

Yes, there is a roadmap, which can be found here: https://trello.com/b/6CdKDGO9/tanks-of-freedom
Unfortunately, Steam does not allow to add arbitrary links to the page, so we can't link our homepage, itch page or github page. Thank you for your feedback, we will re-work our page to incorporate more information.

There is very little here. Do you have a roadmap of future-planned features?
In this overly saturated market, every new game needs an angle. What's yours?
Will there be a (local) leaderboard, flag (& faction color) choice, maybe some RPG elements?
Don't have much to go on. Don't get me wrong, I like the design, but I feel it's not enough. :qlexcellent:
