    It went really well. We exhibited in the Pax Rising area with heaps of other Australian indie game developers. We managed to get a working build of Pico Tanks ready and we set it up to so people could play 2 vs 2. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive :D

    Here is some gameplay footage of the team playing some frantic 2 vs 2 on the new shipping yard level. A lot has changed since we last posted any gameplay footage! Can you spot the differences? ;)

    Thank you! Soft launch will be first quarter 2019, and global launch soon after. If you want to be alerted when soft launch is available, you can sign up to our mailing list :) www.picotanks.com

    Hmm, a very inconvenient road block :D



    We actually threw in over 1000 sheep in this scene! They avoid trees and barriers, and run away from the tank when it's when moving faster.
    Are there any other animals you would like to see in the environments?

    So is the soft launch and beta two different things?

    A little preview of the customisation menu WIP. This combination is... the Pizza Coffee Healing Hover Tank? ;)

    Innocent dynamic prop train, minding its own business, caught in Pico Tank mayhem Having dynamic props can make a level more interesting, does anyone have any suggestions you'd like to see in levels? Would you want to interact with the train, even if your tank can't get to the tracks?

    Make a large, metal, container storage map where there’s a large tower crane that raises you up a level when you park on its winch’s board. And there could be multiple stories of containers arranged like a maze.

    One idea is a city map with a racetrack at it with little race cars going around it.

    Thanks for your ideas, Cooper! I told the lead developer about them and he likes the idea of the city racetrack :)
    Your storage map sounded cool too, and he had an interesting explanation regarding that. Maps where the players could be on different planes from each other sounded like fun, but a design decision was made early on in development to keep everyone on the same level, because otherwise it would be difficult for players to tell distance and where exactly projectiles would land.

    A1195949-BF60-4002-8453-85E21FA8A4EB.jpeg I have a recommendation, please model some tanks turret after this bad boy, the KV2. It’s a classic in my opinion, I know the game is cartoony but I would like to see something similar.

    It would be cool to see that sort of thing in the game! Maybe we can look into that in the future :) Thank you for your recommendation
