Positech's next game is Gratuitous Tank Battles

I have to admit that I love me a good tank battle. Shredding treads and busting out armor-piercing rounds on some underarmored fools is my idea of a good time. In fact, that I don't care if there's no context. Just gimme a tank battle, dammit. Good thing Gratuitous Tank Battles is on the way.

It's coming from Positech Games, the one-man studio that brought you Gratuitous Space Battles, a game I liked that just so happened to be about designing a fleet of well-armed spaceships and sending them against other fleets of well-armed spaceships for a big ol' orgy of beam lasers and plasma torpedoes.

Gratuitous Tank Battles actually does take place in an alternate reality where World War I continued for two hundred more years. I suppose that counts as context, which would make the tank battles slightly less gratuitous. Still, it's exciting, as you can see from the game's first screenshots below. 

Expect it sometime in the fourth quarter of 2011.
