It is the case of mythical tank that could be used in the game, from which Ian Johnson and Stewart Paterson have left us a nice story.


A key point was when Ian and I joke with the idea of ​​including tanks in the game, it was very ridiculous, and there was no reason to justify it, explains Paterson. We had no reasons to develop it beyond implementing something that was indestructible, very dangerous and hilarious destroying all kinds of things.

We put a pedestrian on top of a car, we did it slower and increase the damage to the Stewart Paterson bullets Both ended up encouraging and proposed to carry out the plan that afternoon, although in a quite unlikely way. We had the vehicle code we could use, and also the code that allowed a pedestrian to rotate and shoot in eight different directions, he says. What happened to us was to put the pedestrian about the car, making him slowly and increasing the damage to the bullets. We already had a basic version of a tank.

The curious anecdote does not end there, but both have revealed that, after checking that it worked and leaving home, they discovered the next day that they had gone from their hands: Crowd of teammates were happening bigger with the tank They had discovered. After having been hidden at his heads at a beginning, the stir caused them to have to confess, but the idea was so fun that we could finally enjoy it in the definitive version of the game.
