We know you stay up at night wishing you could build electronic tank fleets and lob digital artillery shells at your hapless victims. We know you trod through the day dreaming of crushing your enemy under your merciless hover-treads. We’re not sure how being crushed under a hover-tread would work, but what you may not know is that your computer dreams of the same things. Fortunately, we’re here to help.

Digitanks brings classic artillery-style gameplay to 3D, and transforms the concept with strategy elements. Traditional artillery games locked players into a 2D environment, but Digitanks kicks it up a notch by opening the game up with resources, base-building, and turn-based strategy, all in three dimensions. You command a fleet of digital tanks and work to conquer your foes. Expanding your base, defending your supply lines, and controlling Electronodes - the source of power - allows you to build ever increasing fleets of battle tanks.

Digitanks raises the bar for artillery games. Tanks are no longer automatons firing blindly in a desperate attempt to kill the enemy before he kills you. In Digitanks, you must manage your resources intelligently and effectively if you expect to succeed. Four specialized units each have distinct advantages and drawbacks. Will you allocate your resources to constructing an artillery battery, at the risk of allowing your enemy time to build his defenses? If you advance to capture more resources, will you leave your supply lines undefended? Will you focus on increasing production capacity or will you construct your fleet and go for an early victory? Artillery games used to be about having sharp aim, now they’re about having sharp brains.


1. Four Unit Types - Main Battle Tanks are the core of your fleet, but require the support of other units to be successful. Mechanized Infantry hold the job of defending your base and supporting your main tanks. Their fortification ability lets them receive combat bonuses over multiple turns. Artillery lets you reach out and touch your target from a distance -- with bombs. Lastly, the Rogue is a light flying recon unit with a torpedo attack that targets enemy supply lines. Don’t be fooled by its diminished stature, its capability to separate enemy structures from their CPU makes the Rogue a credible threat.
2. Dynamic Destructible Terrain - Raining hell down on your unsuspecting foes is fun and all, but it’s tons more fun when you leave them in a charred crater with only their fear to hold them company. Your mission’s not over until your enemy is reduced to nothing but a hole in the ground.
3. Turn-Based Artillery/Strategy - This novel gameplay style pushes the boundaries of artillery games. Between the upgrade to 3D and the introduction of strategy elements the Digitanks gameplay is far expanded from artillery games of the past.
4. Eight Structures - Expand your digital empire with a burgeoning network infrastructure: Loaders to construct your fleet, Power Supply Units to collect those valuable Electronode resources, Buffers to expand your network, and a CPU command center to tie them all together. The more Buffers you have the larger your network gets, and you know what they say about people with large networks. (They have better coverage!)
5. Online Multiplayer - You can team up with your friends or against them in the Digitanks online multiplayer. Up to four players can play in Strategy mode and up to eight in Artillery mode.

System Requirements:

Digitanks will require Windows 2K/XP/Vista; a 1.5GHz processor; 1GB system memory; a 3D NVidia or ATI card with 128MB video memory (Intel not supported)
