Playing video games with friends is a blast, especially when you win together. We to capture that feeling with a co-op game where cooperation is key to overcoming an enormous challenge… like a 60-foot cat tank aiming its fingerguns at you. ConnecTank puts you inside a massive tank where you place conveyor belts, extinguish fires, and match colored scrap to craft ammo to fire at enemy tanks.
That gave us a challenge too, how could we keep the same chaotic fun in single player? ConnecTank was designed with a set of single player levels with multiple difficulty levels to choose from. We packed the game with many unlockable tanks, dozens of tank parts, and procedurally generated maps. Whether you’re with a tanker team or driving solo there are plenty of surprises to discover.
Creating ConnecTank’s wacky world was just as much fun as whacking invading broccoli monsters. Patrick Baker who was a writer on The Regular Show came up with the idea when we showed him Finneas Fat Cat while talking about ridesharing and food delivery apps. From there he wrote stories where fetch a tank-sized ball for a billionaire terrier and deliver foot massagers to penguins.
Natsume helped us publish ConnecTank globally where it was revealed at New Game Plus Expo. We were invited to the ID@Xbox Summer Game Fest event to show the first playable build and it was an absolute thrill seeing other players discover strategies we couldn’t imagine. If you have a video or streamed ConnecTank, let us know! We still have an team debate about which tank is the best. (Obviously, it's Snakes on a Tank.)
