Triggerfish Drill Sergeant Launched!
Meet the Troops Trailer!
Release date: Oct 9 2014
Triggerfish Drill Sergeant

Triggerfish Drill Sergeant is a single-player puzzle game where you organize and recruit troops to create the proper parade ground drill formations.

Take charge of your troops, from the raw recruits to the battle-tested veterans. Lead them through drills and navigate them through parade grounds to prepare for the horrors of war. Press on as your troops forge past missiles, lasers, and ruthless killers.

A more technical description of gameplay: the goal of each drill is to arrange troops to match the requested formation. Before the drill starts, you give orders at the barracks that are found on the parade grounds. Using these, you will recruit troops -- or blow them up -- to get the desired formation.

  • Explore challenging and deep puzzle mechanics.
  • Overcome new obstacles over a multitude of different parade grounds.
  • Face new types of recruits that challenge your planning mastery.
  • Organize your troops in the comfort of relaxing tunes by Forgotten Dawn.
  • Create and play custom user-created drills.

I think the UI needs a bit of refining, but this is a clever, weird concept that I can't pass up. Good luck!

The game's about fish -- you're the one ordering them around!

I'm also working on a new video that shows off some of the more advanced gameplay!
