Tank Maniacs, a local multiplayer party game about blowing up everyone with tanks looks really fun and it's coming to Linux. I managed to get confirmation from the developer on Twitter, who mentioned a Linux build is now up for those testing it.

A game that doesn't exactly need a long description, you each pilot a strange tank and attempt to destroy everyone else. As the developer says "It's mostly about destroying your closest friends' hopes and dreams with weird tanks."—hah.

Looks incredibly fun, a simple idea that will take some time to master. Likely a fantastic game for me to pick up and play with the mini-me to have a good laugh with. The developer has already sent over a key for testing, so once it's released I shall have some proper thoughts up on it.

Features:

  • 11 wonderfully weird tanks
  • 7 different maps (we are continuously adding more during the beta)
  • 2 game modes
  • Couch madness up to 4 players
  • Support for a wide range of controllers
  • Unforgiving AI bots

You can wishlist/follow it on Steam for the release that's sometime "soon", it's starting off in Early Access whilst they add in more content including maps, tanks, and game modes.

Reminds me of Scorched Tanks for the Amiga. That had some ridiculous weapons too.
