Retro Tank Party

Battle your friends online in a Retro Tank Party!

It's a wild 2-4 player, top-down tank shooter to keep you trash talking your buddies into the wee hours of the night.

Starting on April 20th, 2021, the game is available on both on Itch.io and Steam. (If you buy on Itch.io, you'll also receive a Steam key.)

Necessary equipment

  • A broadband internet connection. This is online only, baby!
  • Friends to play with online. There is matchmaking, but this is a tiny indie game - don't expect to find randos to battle. It's super cheap - buy a couple copies for your friends!

Controls

Mouse & keyboard:

  • WSAD or arrow keys = drive your tank
  • Mouse = aim
  • Left click = shoot
  • Right click = use ability

Gamepad:

  • Left stick or D-pad = drive your tank
  • Right stick = aim
  • Right trigger = shoot
  • Left trigger = use ability

Source code

This is an Open Source game! The code available under the MIT license over on GitLab​.

You should still totally buy it, because (1) that'd be nice thing to do, and (2) we're running the server so you don't have to. :-)
