Tank Maniacs, a crazy local multiplayer game that's all about blowing each other up is coming to Linux "soon" and we have keys for those willing to provide the developer with feedback.

For those who haven't seen it before, check out the trailer below first to see if you would actually be interested:

Game 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

After recently writing about it, I spoke to the developer again who has now provided me with 15 keys. This does come with the expectation that it will be tested on Linux and you will need to give feedback on their Discord Channel. This is your chance to ensure another great local multiplayer game is nicely polished for the Linux release.

If you want to get a Steam key, simply make it clear in the comments and by the end of Saturday I will send a private message on here to those who are picked.

I'd love to give it a try too!

I'd gladly test it locally with the kids (on SteamOS). The idea of local-time Scorched Tanks/Earth is hugely appealing. :-)

I'll do the unthinkable, and buy it when it comes out.

I wouldn't mind a key, plus I can provide some performance feedback info for the devs given my specs are on the low end side of things. Plus looks good been looking for another artillery game for my library and I have discovered recently over the last year or so I love doing beta tests as it gets me playing something for longer than I normally do where I just kind of bounce off stuff and never play for very long. (On that note I need to do some more testing for the devs working on DASH later today)

I'm interested in a key.
I'm looking for a Smash Bros. alternative for Linux and this looks just like it.
I can test on an nvidia optimus laptop as well as an AMD desktop. I have Manjaro Linux and 360, PS3, and Steam controlers.
And I'm about to give a party with a lot of nerds in 2 weeks where we can througly test the local multiplayer part.
