Hi .

I really appreciate the mixture of genres. I’ve been a fan of Hover Tank Games since BattleZone 1998. Its pretty, its got action, background stories. is going to be a huge hit!

Thank you for the kind words!

We are looking for testers to help us play test, report bugs, provide feedback, suggestions and ideas for our EA game .

Updated the Thread with recent screenshots, new UI screenshots and links! :slight_smile:

Looks really good!

After seeing the low-res dithered GIF:

I can’t help but think this game would look awesome in a dithered/pixelated aesthetic using something like this retro postprocess:

@Glutamatkrieger is selling an older version of that postprocess effect in that thread (which I personally bought and would vouch for), but I think an updated version for the UE marketplace and latest engine version is forthcoming.

/end my 2 cents :wink:

In the video at one point it looks like you might support split-screen local multiplayer: is this correct? If so, will it support 2, 3, or 4 players? Even with other players being able to see your position, this would be a great couch versus game :wink:

Keep up the great work!

Thank you! :slight_smile: We are not looking to change the art direction at the moment!
We are not supporting local multiplayer at the moment. That screen was to suggest that you can play 3v3, 4v4, 5v5 and 6v6 matches. We apologize if it was misleading, but will pass your suggestion to the other developers! :slight_smile:

No worries, local multiplayer can a big performance hit, if nothing else. But I’d gladly vote for it – nothing quite like competitive gaming on the couch with family/friends…

Regarding art direction, I think the current look is great! I just think it’s pretty cool being able to get that retro pixel/dither look with a simple (and currently inexpensive/free, though not sure what it’ll cost when the dev releases the newer version on the marketplace) plug & play postprocess effect. If you’re a fan of that “look” at all, give it a try just for your own internal entertainment, I think it deserves more attention :wink:

Regardless, looking forward to trying this when it’s done!

It has been a while since we posted our newest features in ! No time for amends!
This is the Default Skin of Aquila Rapax, the second hovercraft in the Aquila hovercrafts family:


These are the two available skins for Rapax:

Aquila Rapax Sticker Bomb Skin v.1


Aquila Rapax Sticker Bomb Skin v.2


Which one do you like the best?

Updated the GIFs with a better scaling quality. Smaller resolutions but they look better.

Here’s one of the latest Body Kits for one of our hovercrafts.

Looks pretty nice
I can give one suggestion,
you can think of changing the golden effect at 0:59 - 1:01 in your video, it looks like the after effect of the explosion, I don’t think it goes well with the realistic look of the environment. You could try changing it’s timing/reduce count/add a sharp circular alpha/swap it for another effect and see how it looks. Just a little improvement though, nothing that important.

Hello! Duly noted! We are working a new video, as the UI has changed quite a bit since our Early Access release.

A few in-game screenshots from our latest playtesting with the new UI, notifications, and various small changes to the HUD.

We introduced new graphic changes to by introducing a new shader and a camera angle change. What do you guys think?

We are excited to announce that we are officially ending 's Steam Early Access period!!
