THE GAME

TankTrouble is an addictively simple web game: Trapped in a maze you and your friends each have 5 bouncing bullets to make sure you will be the last tank standing …well that’s just the basics. Then there are overpowered weapons, cool tank swag, an evil space dog and a whole lot more…

THE BACKGROUND

We built this game in our spare time and just for fun! Now, over the years it has gathered more than 1 million registered players from all around the world and together we have blown up more than a staggering 1.000.000.000 tanks! 

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Blowing up friends is fun! Currently, that is only possible when you all gather around the same computer. So when alone one must resort to versus our AI; an evil space dog. This is because the time and complexity of making online battles by far exceeds the scope of a spare time project. That’s where you come into the picture.

Please help us make TankTrouble online and let players from all over the world have some good solid fun together,

Brian and Mads.

Ps. Did we mention it's jolly good fun already? Don't just take our word for it - grab a friend and see for yourself on TankTrouble.com

You get your name on the Wall of Fame of our website where it will remain for all eternity along with the names of your fellow backers.

You also get the Backer Box, which contains cool accessories for your tank. You will get this right away so you can start showing off your support TODAY*! And if you don’t have a tank already, don’t worry! It’s completely free and only takes 20 seconds to make one. Just go to the Garage right now!

* Allow us about 24 hours to register you and unlock the box. If we don't get funded, you keep the Backer Box regardless.

You get a TankTrouble Premium Account with loads of advantages such as creating your own, private battles for you and your friends, skipping queues, setting up tournaments and getting rid of ads. There will many more advantages to come and the best thing is: The account will never expire!

This reward reserves your seat amongst the first to play TankTrouble online! You will get access to the beta and help us develop features and tweak the final bits and pieces through our closed beta forum.

We also throw in the Beta Tester Box, which holds more untested, hazardous accessories and new, experimental colours for your tank to wear (if you dare) as you help us improve the beta version!

Go the extra mile and pimp out your tank with the 12 diamond cut accessories and exclusive metallic colours to be found in the highly mysterious and stylish Onyx Box!

Go all in on swag with this reward, which lands you awesome stuff for both you and your tank! You get your very own TankTrouble Mug so you can enjoy a beverage in style while blowing up tanks. That, and your tank will be showered in accessories from the Rainbow Unicorn Box, which is filled to the brim with unique and magical stuff!

Get the limited edition TankTrouble Kickstarter T-Shirt and show off that you helped Online Battles become a reality. Comes in sizes S, M, L, XL, XXL and  3XL. That, and your tank will be showered in accessories from the Rainbow Unicorn Box, which is filled to the brim with unique and magical stuff!

Bag this awesome TankTrouble hoodie and wear your dedication with pride. Chose from zippered black (as worn by Mads in the video) or marine blue. Both are high quality, soft and warm and fitted with pockets. Comes in sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL. That, and your tank will be showered in accessories from the Rainbow Unicorn Box, which is filled to the brim with unique and magical stuff!

BUT THERE’S MORE!

You can become even more involved in the development of TankTrouble Online Battles and design a part of the game yourself!

DESIGN YOUR OWN ACHIEVEMENT: We will let you design your own achievement including how it is earned and what the reward accessory should be*. It will then be possible for all the players of the game to earn YOUR achievement …if they can!

DESIGN YOUR OWN SWAG: You can also choose to design your very own tank accessory, which we will then create in the game*. You will get to decide who gets to wear it. Perhaps it could be an accessory exclusive to your team? Or you can just keep it to yourself. You decide!

LUNCH AND BATTLE WITH THE DEVELOPERS: As the ultimate reward, you will get directions to our top secret, underground laboratory**. We will show you around and give you the inside scoop on the development of TankTrouble. You will get to battle the creators, and we will take you out to lunch. Don’t forget to bring a notebook chuck full of ideas for this rare opportunity to chat with the developers in person!

* We reserve the rights to veto inappropriate designs.

** This does not include transport to the secret lab (which is located in Aarhus, Denmark).

If we get funded we will surrender our normal lives and actual jobs and relinquish our souls to make TankTrouble Online Battles - whatever it takes! We will embark on the mission April 1st. We estimate it will take us one month to get a playable Beta up and running, one month to polish the experience, and one month to fix all the things we blew up along the way.

Risks and challenges

We have a solid game already. And we have the experience and the knowledge it takes to make it online - and wits enough to know that it's not trivial.

A technical prototype is talking to the servers already. That still leaves many hours of hard work (and tons of fun) ahead, but with the generous buffer we have given ourselves that is no concern.

The biggest risk is lag. This old arch enemy of online games will be lurking in the shadows but we will use all the tricks in the book to make sure he remains there.
