What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Early Access phase has three goals:
  • to improve the balancing of the game
  • to find and eliminate possible compatibility problems
  • additional features and game modes based on user feedback are also conceivable

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is expected to leave the Early Access phase as soon as the first two goals (balancing and stability) have reached a state that provides a satisfactory experience for the vast majority of players. The current target is a release in the course of summer 2023.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The final version will differ from the current version mainly by an improved balancing. Further content is also conceivable, but should not delay the release and could therefore be released later in the form of updates.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • The game is in a good playable condition and has received positive feedback from the first testers.
  • Currently, the game includes 6 game modes, 6 characters / tanks each with their own special ability, an arena map and a procedural map generator.
  • There are no known gamebreaking bugs. However, there are problems in the game statistics in places.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“There are currently no plans to increase the price of the game after the end of the Early Access phase. If new features or expansions result from the Early Access phase, which can only be implemented with high effort, a - moderate - price increase cannot be ruled out.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The user feedback should help improve the balancing of the game and eliminate minor inconsistencies. In addition, further game modes, characters and maps based on ideas from the community are also conceivable.

The Steam forum is the primary place to exchange suggestions for improvement.”

About This Game

Thumb Tank is a pure competitive splitscreen multiplayer game for two to four players. All the basic game mechanics can be learned in less than five minutes, so anyone can just pick up a gamepad and play along. At the same time, it offers tactical depth for more experienced players by combining weapons and power-ups.


The simple rank system allows you to play with more or less experienced players, with better players entering the match with a handicap and inexperienced players with advantages.


Choose from eight different tanks, each with their own special ability: burst fire, shield, nitro drive, cloaking device, electromagnetic pulse, air support, a self shooting turret or a bomb shower.

Upgrade Draft

After each round, a small selection of nearly 20 tank upgrades - each again in four possible strengths - is available for selection. The player currently furthest behind in the standings gets to choose first, and so on. This gives lagging players a chance to catch up and keeps the games exciting.

Medals and scoring

Although the goal is of course to eliminate opponents, Thumb Tanks rewards equally courageous play. Collect medals and thus points in more than 20 categories, from accuracy to healing health points.

Game modes

Currently there are six different game modes. From classic deathmatch to game modes in which multiple players must team up against one. In some modes players earn points for eliminations, in others for completing game mode specific tasks.
