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.
Earlier this week we previewed Gratuitous Tank Battles, the upcoming game from Positech Games. Today, you can read the full interview with Cliff covering the multiplayer component of the game, Cliff’s love of tanks and more.

Also, there is a lot that two years on from GSB, I know I could do better next time around, so it was a joy to pull apart and improve all the things I’ve always wanted to change. …
