About this project
NEWS: WE WILL BE RELEASING ATA2 ON THE OUYA CONSOLE!
Armored Tank Assault 2
Armored Tank Assault 2 (ATA2) is a Free-to-Play cross-platform multi-player tank simulator where you can play online with mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Android), OUYA console, PC and Mac. We are going for a Free-to-Play model. The more people who play ATA2, the more fun it will be!
In the near future, North America experiences a currency collapse from being bought out by foreign nations and the continent becomes war ridden with various factions from all over the world fighting on American turf using armored tank vehicles.
In ATA2, players will be able to choose any of the 4 factions: North, South, East and West. They will fight for control of the Americas. If this game gets funded, backers can help save billions of lives and prevent the future war by solving it in a virtual video game world! Which part of the world has the best tankers? Only ATA2 can solve that problem.
On launch we will have 4 multi-player maps with 10 modern real world looking tanks and 10 unlockable tanks. Our focus on this game is to make the tanks look as close to real world modern tanks as we can get within existing technology limits for all platforms.
ATA2 will also have a technology tree with lots of player upgrades for crew, armor, shells, weapons and engines. Each tank will be unique and have different types of upgrades. There will be no 'God' tanks (i.e. where it owns everyone and no one can damage/kill it). We want everyone to enjoy every moment of gameplay and not have to worry about getting owned by someone who has every single upgrade in ATA2.
We'll have a global ranking system so that the best ATA2 tankers get recognized on the leaderboards.
- 10 playable and 10 unlockable tanks by launch, with plenty of upgrades for each tank. Additional tanks to come after launch.
- Multiplayer: We will be giving away free server software to run your own servers for ranked or unranked servers.
- Leaderboards: Global ranking system for ranked server play.
- In-game purchasing (for better gear and weapons). You can either earn your unlocks through playing or you can purchase them for ranked server play if you prefer saving time.
- Tank crew of four soldiers per tank. Each soldier will have special abilities (i.e., reload time; movement speed; damage bonuses). You can optionally buy a skilled tanker crew.
Our rewards are the most exciting part about this Kickstarter project. Since Ameon is a production AND training facility, the Ameon team will provide a 2 week crash course in video game development for backers who are interested in learning how to produce and develop video games on their own. This exciting opportunity gives backers of the $9,000-$10,000 dollar range the ability to have an excellent overview of the tools of the game development trade. Backers of this level will also be hosted at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel, which is located next door to the Ameon Entertainment headquarters in Sacramento, California. For $10,000 or more, backers will receive a custom-built PC gaming rig that is also capable for game development production.
For the $8,000 or more range, Ameon developers will travel to your favorite location anywhere in the United States and build a section or area of your favorite city or town to be placed in a game level of your choosing. If you have a particular place you would like to experience armored warfare in a game, donate to this level!
A $5,000 pledge gets you in the game. Yes! You will be modeled and textured in 3D in whatever outfit you want and you will be placed as a statue in game (if you don't want to be in the level you can also choose a person or object of your liking as long as it is not someone else's intellectual property or copyrighted character).
For the $2,500 range, backers will get an awesome plastic tank model built and painted by the Ameon team. These Tank models are hard to make and we use them for reference in building our 3D game assets. There is a limit of 15 models at this level so jump on this reward!
Backers in the $1,000 dollar range will get a custom hand drawn caricature of themselves or someone of their choice driving a tank by one of our artists with a personal "Thank You" from the Ameon Team.
A $500 or more backing gets YOU on the crew of player tanks. Since players will be able to choose tanker crews of four with different skill sets in their loadouts, YOUR face will be immortalized as a 2D in-game character!
The $300 donation range gets you CD of the original ATA2 Epic Soundtrack. Music will be contemporary orchestral with some heavy metal beats.
Rewards for the $200 or more range will be concept art prints of art from ATA2 signed by the management and artists with a personal "Thanks for your support!"
If you pledge $80 or more you will receive pre-alpha development builds TWO whole months before the actual beta and we will send you a beautiful poster with art from the game designed exclusively for our Kickstarter campaign from our extremely talented team. These will be limited edition runs so get them while you can!
Backers at this level and above will really be able to shape how awesome this game can turn out! All of our rewards are posted on our Kickstarter website to the right. If you have any questions please feel welcome to ask anytime! We are so very excited and honored to work with you and show you how much we value your early feedback and support as we are making this game for YOU!
yes...BUT, our technology is currently being updated so Linux maybe delayed for a month or two. Building to Linux for our Engine is currently in Beta. It will be possible to gauge when Linux will be available when we acquire updated licenses for our Game engine technology.
