Release date: Early 2014
Make Heroes. Make History.
Recruits is a squad based top down shooter. Inspired by games like Cannon Fodder, Alien Swarm and Jagged Alliance Recruits puts players on the front lines of the battlefield to accomplish your missions through any means necessary. Fast paced and packed with explosions, Recruits offers a wide variety of features that allow you, and your friends to take command of the action and lead your men to victory.

Support the development of Recruits by pre-ordering the game for only $4.95.
When you pre-order Recruits you will receive:
  • Access to the latest Alpha builds.
  • Regular updates with new features, content and fixes.
  • The full game for free once it is complete regardless of the final price.
  • Steam Keys (If our Greenlight campaign is successful and we are on Steam)
  • Free bugs, glitches and weird things... it's an Alpha!
Game Info:
  • Multiple Mission Objectives
    Your men will be charging into enemy compounds to assassinate military leaders, jumping out of aircraft to save friendly soldiers, escaping torture through a maze of underground tunnels, holding off wave after wave of enemy forces while you defend captured bases, using tanks, choppers, jeeps and boats to destroy your enemies in amazing style, all while trying to keep your head from being blown off your shoulders.

  • Wide Range of Weapons
    Dismember your enemies with machine guns, grenades, explosives, melee, flamethrowers, minigun's, it's everything your men need to complete your missions.

  • Variety of Levels
    Fight battles in locations anywhere from thick jungle to civilian populated urban cities, to freezing arctic snow to scorpion infested deserts, dark and damp underground mines to the inside of a cargo plane at 15,000ft. Many war zones will be covered including destructible objects and interactive elements to immerse yourself in.

  • Level Up System
    If your soldier dies... he's not coming back. There is no reset button in life. Level up with ranks, starting off as a low class soldier and working your way up through to Captain and General. If you loose a battle hardened soldier, he is replaced with a fresh Recruit.

  • Command your Team
    The context sensitive Right Click menu gives you the ability to give basic commands to your team members such as Attack, Move, Suppress, Grenade, Disarm and Regroup allowing you to tackle any situation.

  • Group Morale
    The more you can help people in missions the more points you gain and the more effective your team is, the more traumatic events you cause or witness and your team start to feel emotionally affected, hindering your performance and risking your chances of survival.

  • Special Abilities and Upgrades
    Gain government funding at the end of campaigns to gain money to level up and pay for special abilities and upgrades such as napalm strikes, reinforcements, accuracy upgrades, cluster bombs, chemical air sprays, weapon packs and much more.

  • Single Player and Co-Op/Multiplayer modes
    A single-player mode puts the player straight into the action and fighting for their country. A multiplayer Co-Op mode puts you and your friends into the war together with survival mode and the ability to replay single player missions.

More information at:

For the latest updates:

As players progress through the game they will gain ranks and respect amongst their fellow soldiers, giving them bonus abilities, unlocked items and perks to better defeat their enemies. The main aim for the player is to complete their missions and gain as many kill points as possible. The higher the rank of the player, the more efficient soldier they are, giving the team a better chance of surviving the missions and ultimately the war.
