Making cars is fun! Who would have known? Well, probably Henry Ford, but also Cliff Harris of Positech Games who has been diligently working away on Production Line for over year, with his first video Dev Blog coming out this time last year. I was lucky enough to catch up with Cliff briefly at EGX and have started on my own journey to become the new Henry Ford.
Production Line, the upcoming car-factory tycoon game from Positech Games is progressing nicely through development and will be appearing on Steam Early Access on the 18th May.
Cliff Harris of Positech Games (think Democracy and Gratuitous Space Battles) fame has been busy working on his new game for quite a while in the background while working on the publishing behind Political Animals and Big Pharma. The new game is Production Line, and Cliff has just confirmed that pre-orders are open with Alpha access the treat at the end of the tunnel.
A debut gameplay trailer has been released by Positech Games (aka Cliff Harris) for the upcoming space battle simulator known as Gratuitous Space Battles 2.
Everyone loves space battles right? They are the things dreams are made of, but unless you want to explore null-sec in Eve Online or pay £50 to access the Elite: Dangerous beta, there aren’t too many options open to you. One long-standing option is Gratuitous Space Battles from Positech Games which is pleasingly getting a sequel. Cliff Harris, the man behind Positech, announced the sequel earlier today.
Last weeks Indie Gaming Roundup was heavy on action and intrigue, but sorely lacking in politics and cats. I’ve taken it upon myself to right those wrongs, right here, right now.
I know what this country needs, it needs me as Prime Minister. Well, if my time with Democracy 3 is anything to go by that is certainly true.
I’ve only ever done a handful of face-to-face interviews in my adventures here on The Reticule and most of them have gone ok, but certainly not great. At the Rezzed show in June I was taking a peak at the Democracy 3 and RedShirt stand and happened to see a face I recognised from Twitter and his blog, it was Cliff Harris, the man behind Positech Interactive.
Take Facebook and Twitter and throw them into a game rather than making games for them and what do you get? Redshirt is the answer with Spacebook at its core. This will be the upcoming first commercial relase from The Tiniest Shark, one woman UK indie dev with Mitu Khandaker leading the way.
Cliff Harris of Positch Games has today announced his next game, Democracy 3 which will be released sometime this year. Early rumblings are that several famous politicians will be eager to get their hands on the game so they can learn how to actually do their jobs. Bit more after the break, (but thankfully no more lame political jokes – joke Ed)
If the past 30 years of games have taught us anything it is that war is fun. Yet actual conflict teaches us that war is hell. How do we square these two opposing results? With Positech “Cliff “Cliffski” Harris” Games’ latest release, Gratuitous Tank Battles.
There was recently a big sale on at Show Me The Games, the indie games portal set up by Positech’s Cliff Harris. I was keen to find out how the sale had gone, and how the site is doing. Hit the jump for Cliff’s thoughts.
Good old Cliff Harris shows off some Gratuitous Tank Battles in this new developer diary and tries to describe what kind of game it is. Tower defence, or something a bit different? Watch and enjoy.
Indie games portal Show Me The Games is currently running a huge two week sale with a whole heap of great indie games available for half price. The brain behind Show Me The Games, Positech’s Cliff Harris describes the event with such words as these:
“Today marks the first day of the first two-week ‘Show Me The Sales’ promotion!
Hosted by the online indie game database at www.showmethegames.com, ‘Show Me The Sales’ is a collection of indie game developers who are each offering substantial discounts on their games over the next two weeks. Unlike any other games bundle or sale, SMTS is a collection of sales hosted directly by the developers, acting just as a directory of discounts, so you still buy the game direct from the individual developer, and the developer gets to keep all of the money.
Just to emphasise that, ShowMeTheGames takes NOTHING from any of the sales, or the developers.”
If you want to get titles such as VVVVVV!, AI War: Fleet Command and Gratuitous Space Battles! at great prices, just head here.

Today, you can read the full interview with Cliff covering the multiplayer component of the game, Cliff’s love of tanks and more. The Reticule – Why did you decide to carry on with the same game style as Gratuitous Space Battles? Cliff Harris – I always think my games are best when I make exactly the game I want to make. I really enjoyed making GSB,…
