Bplus announces anti-war game Tank it! for Steam and Nintendo NX
Vienna, Austria – September 2, 2016 Independent game developer, Bplus,
announces Tank it! A new war simulation game with the message #WarKills
Tank it! is a realistic and bloody war simulation game designed to
show how brutal and dangerous war really is… that it is no good... that
countless civilians are killed as collateral damage. In Tank it! you
command a drone to remotely control a heavy tank. You receive the mission
to travel to remote villages, find and destroy the target military camps
and eliminate all terrorists. But as in real life, there are many
civilians in the villages, as well. The terrorists and civilians alike
are at the player’s mercy. It is up to the player alone to decide how to
handle this mission.
Bernd Geiblinger: "I for one do not enjoy
playing brutal, bloody games, so for me it is painful to create death
animations and blood. I did everything else before I did this kind of
work - but I am doing it for the message. This is also why Tank it! will
be available for a very low value - For me it is much more important to
spread the message of the game than to earn a great deal of revenue."
Trailer coming soon.

'Puzzle Box setup' for Nintendo 3DS was a nice
little gameplay experiment to prove the concept. The idea was born out of
the level editor for the next Bit Boy!! game.
Now in Puzzle Box you
create Pixel Arts or complete a pre-defined level setup by dropping
blocks into a bottle to complete it. Then you can use them as levels in
other Modes with different action gameplay. It is a simple way to enjoy
Pixel Art in different ways.

you for all your support and the great feedback on Facebook, Twitter and
Miiverse. Since many of you wish it and because I received many messages
in this regard, I am particularly pleased to announce that the one and
only true Bit Boy!! also called Kubi will be playable in Puzzle Box in "KUBI
MODE". Our favorite time travel Pixel Hero is thereby avoiding
Shadow monsters and fights his way to the exit while collecting colors

Sept 5th 2015 Chris Strauss canceled the Steam & NX Version of the
Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs Game.
As a huge fan of the old Contra Games (Europe: Super Probotector) it was always my dream to create a game with that gameplay and feeling. Now with Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs I got the chance to make my dream come true with an awesome IP from the ‘80s.
Bplus is happy to develop Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs for Nintendo 3DS and Steam with the following features:
- Contra-style run and gun shoot-'em-up gameplay - Real 80's IP and real 80's feeling - Retro-Style Graphics based on the original Anime and original Artworks - 12 differently themed missions full of oldschool action - 4 playable characters with different abilities and vehicles - Intense Mecha battles to fight the big bosses - Game Soundtrack based on Dale Schacker's Original Series Score made by Roland Koch - Voices from the Series featuring Peter Cullen and others - Mission briefings with original cutscenes from the Anime - Bonus Games and Highscore lists
- In-game music box - Perfect playability with tight controls as you know it from Contra - Tons of stuff to collect and many of secrets to discover - Full New Nintendo 3DS support (+DualStick Control, +HeadTracking)
The main engine is already done and plays well. To complete the game development Chris Strauss made a kickstarter website with some neat rewards: http://kck.st/1WWmbEH We really need your help and all your retro-love to make this game happen.
Satoru Iwata influenced my life in a great way. His death is very, very
To honor Satoru Iwata, I decided to put my games on sale from
now to the end of August 2015in America. I reduced their prices as much
as possible so I wouldn't make a profit from them. I actually wanted to
give them away for free, but contracts and other legal barriers prevented
me from doing so. Any remaining cents that come from these sales will
be donated to a cancer foundation.
