About

Have you ever played Starcraft or Command & Conquer and ever wished you were down there with your troops? In Executive Assault you can!

Executive Assault is a Real Time Strategy/First Person Shooter game where players will be able to take part in battles for control of a planet either on foot, driving around in a vehicle or tactically controlling the battle from the CEO's office. The game will include a mixture of old school weaponry and futuristic hardware all researchable via an extensive tech tree.

Story

Set in a future where banks and corporations have joined to form an unholy evil SuperCorporation with limitless power and never enough wealth. The Earth totally devastated by pollution and greed where the rich and powerful live in clean domes and everyone else lives in the toxic atmosphere outside.

Not satisfied with current mining methods, researchers come up with the ingenious idea of using nuclear weapons to blast out large chunks of the Earth's crust to reach rich deposits of precious minerals below. However due to their short sightedness, the cascading affect rips through the crust and blows up the planet.

Escaping into space, the CEO's and heads of the SuperCorp's survive to exploit new planets. As one of the CEO's you'll be in charge of strip mining the next planet.

Features

  • A Real time strategy/ First person shooter combination game.
  • Design your base including: Turrets, doors, forcefields, alarms and much more.
  • Able to take control of tanks, robots and aircraft to fully immerse yourself in the combat.
  • Customize your turrets and units to adapt to enemy strategies.
  • Large researchable tech tree with random generation so each game is different.
  • Game play depth rather than cut scenes or highly linear stories. Its a game, not a film!
  • Able to sneak into the enemy base and steal tech.
  • Vast array of planets to explore and strip mine.
  • Multiplayer, as there's nothing more satisfying then nuking your friends.

Aspects to look forward too

Just as your excited looking forward to be playing Executive Assault, we are as excited in creating it and the content. We are very mindful of the issues in attempting to join 2 genres together and the last thing we want to do is make a substandard game trying to merge them together. One important aspect of this will be gameplay depth.

We ultimately want aspects such as when you run over a robot, it gets stuck in the window and you need to wipe it off with the windscreen wipers, or adding fantastical inventions such as the quantum tunnelling device which will open a 2 way gateway across the map , but with research it could create a vacuum effect when it opens so you could hoover up your opponents at the other side. Or even a special gun designed to close it while troops are being transported through.

Also want to add a weather control device with various levels of power from rain to a precise lightning strike to take out that annoying player.

The First person shooter aspect will be a big part in the game. Usually tanks and walkers end up being the favourite units to create leaving the lonely soldiers to be useless. Well in Executive Assault these soldiers or A11Bots will play an important part in the game as they will be the only units capable of entering facilities and killing the CEO or disabling power or even taking over the security control room.

Plus with you running alongside your fellow bots, it will only add to the success of your mission.

Below is the latest pre alpha trailer video showing some of the features:

OK its not Titanfall but still damn good fun! Plus if yours gets destroyed, you can simply customize and manufacture a new one at your Vehicle factory.

Pulse weapons have also been updated to be faster and more accurate, also the look and feel have been adjusted.

Many more bugs and patches have been added to prevent game breaking bugs such as the path finding collapsing.
Currently moving towards putting Executive Assault onto Steam Greenlight so a new fancy trailer will be coming out in the new future.

On side note though, from now on I will only be posting major updates here as I feel that only the best updates should be posted on IndiDB. If you wish to see the minor updates eg latest game play pictures, mini video updates such as the one above etc. Then please follow Executive Assault on ether Facebook, Twitter or the main website. www.executiveassault.com

Dude, I'm really impressed by this game. So far, what you have accomplished is amazing. I don't know if you're the only guy working on this game, but if you are, I'd be speechless.

Keep it up mate! The game is looking really smooth so far, and it's an awesome innovation.

I guess I should come clean and admit that yes it is just me working on the game with the help of people in the know. I work 9-6 in film and television and then work 7-late working on Industry. I hope some day with pre-orders to work full time on Industry as I love it soooo much! :D

The concept of this project is brilliant. I am dreaming for years of such a rts/fps hybrid game-project. If you decide to offer DRM-free Listen/Dedicated server hosting for coop/adversarial multiplayer this will be an Instant-Buy for me :)

This project really deserves more attention... Keep up the good work.

The game will defiantly include multiplayer, however I am still deciding which system would be best. A traditional RTS lobby where everyone joins at the start, or a more modern server hosting the map and people can join and leave at will. The latter being more of a challenge to implement. I think it could be fun to have 1 CEO running the base and people requesting weapons/tanks/buggies etc based on what tech is available, and if it isnt then you sneak into the enemy base and steal it!
