Independent game localization company “Fruitbat Factory” have today announced that their first ever release, the story driven strategy game “War of the Human Tanks” is now available for purchase through a number of different vendors worldwide – including Desura, Gamersgate and Indievania. The game currently comes at a discounted price of $8.99 (From $9.99), but if you are still uncertain, a free demo version of the game is also available for download.
War of the Human Tanks is the first game of the “Human Tanks, Charge!” series. The series pits a group of Human Tanks commanded by the player against the opposing Commanding Officers and their forces in a campaign fought on a series of grid-based maps. Players will have to use their wits to upgrade their units and utilize them to the best of their abilities in order to progress throughout the game.
Some promoted features of the game include:
- Fast-paced strategic battles in over 30 maps
- Use resources earned from battles to develop new tanks
- Customize your tanks with various modules to deadly effect
- Multiple endings based on your performance
- Replay the story keeping your previously earned units and resources
- Free battle mode to practice and gather extra supplies
- English localization features two all-new bonus maps, hand-drawn battle backgrounds and an improved user interface

War of the Human Tanks is heavily story driven with multiple routes and endings, but you can also skip the story and enjoy dozens of hours of snappy combat. The Japanese mix of adventure and strategy genres will be a fun and unique experience for many gamers.

There’s more to this game than Human Tanks. You also unlock fun special characters as you play and many other exciting secrets are there to discover. Hidden units, upgrades, maps and story chapters just to name a few.

In addition to the faithful localization, we’ve polished particular gameplay features like menu design, and we’ve added new content such as hand drawn battle backgrounds and two additional maps not included in the original. Our goal was to take a great game and make it even better. We can’t wait for people to play the free demo and share their thoughts with us!
While I have a review of the game in the works, and am not going to spoil too much of it, it is actually proving to be a pretty enjoyable game with its own unique twists. If you want to see it on Steam, you can vote for it through Steam Greenlight!
