About this project
Screenshots of the game are at the bottom of the page!!!
Sorry about the laggy, slightly unclear video footage of the game, it's because I used my slow computer with a crappy screen recorder.
UPDATE: For $25.00, you now recieve our next game EARLY, rather than at the official launch date.
What is Sketch Tanks, and what makes it unique?
Sketch Tanks is the first game created by Prelimse Studios. The easiest way to get an idea of what Sketch Tanks is is to imagine the "Tanks!" game in Wii Play mixed with The World's Hardest Game. Sketch Tanks has a unique art style, resembling a drawing on notebook paper. The game has three modes: Normal Mode, in which you have infinite lives, and are able to choose whichever level you want to play on, Arcade Mode, which limits your lives to a set amount, and forces you to complete as many levels as you possibly can before your lives run out, and Survival mode, in which you attempt to survive swarms of enemies as long as you possibly can. Your tank possesses five separate weapons which you use to dispatch the variety of enemies you encounter. Sketch Tanks also has in in-game level editor, allowing you to create, play, and share your levels with others. Sketch Tanks is considered by its testers to be one of the hardest games they have ever played, especially when hard mode is enabled, causing your tank to be destroyed in one hit. With local high scores, you and your friends can compete to see who the best of the best is. Sketch Tanks will be released for PC, Mac, Linux, and XBLIG soon after. We might look into iPhone/iPod/iPad, too!
Who created Sketch Tanks?
Sketch Tanks is being created part time by me, the owner of Prelimse Studios, a new indie game development studio which focuses on creating fun, DRM-free, cross platform games that satisfy our customers.
