Turn Based Strategy

Average Rating


Ratings closed


War of the Human Tanks is a story driven strategy game with a gameplay reminiscent of Battleship and Chess, featuring a story of war, loyalty, sacrifice and human shaped tanks.

This story takes place in a land vaguely reminiscent of modern-day Japan. In the twenty years since the first Human Tank was developed, the war raging between the Empire of Japon and the Kingdom of Japon has turned into a proxy war fought between Human Tanks on both sides.

The Empire of Japon once ruled the entire land of Japon. Now diminished and cornered, the Empire prepares to make its last stand as the tanks of the Kingdom of Japon draw close to its capital. Shoutaro Daihon'ei, Lieutenant of the Imperial Army moves out to the battlefield, followed closely by the loyal Human Tanks in his company.

If you purchased the game through Desura, you should have a Steam key here. If you purchased it from a bundle or elsewhere, you should get a Steam key from that place.

I bought the game from the gala store about 2 months ago. I don't see any mention of a Steam Key on the Desura Client or in my Gala Store Serial Numbers page. Are there no keys for this version?

If you purchased it before the game was greenlit then we are with the same problem. I suppose you have to contact Desura.

Maybe they have allocated deluxe version keys only and not regular ones? Perhaps that is why the version we have does not link to a valid key in the collection page and instead states we need to buy deluxe version to get a key....

I would actually consider paying the difference to upgrade but not the full deluxe cost on top of the regular one.

That seems to have happened. It should be fixed soon if isn't already.
