About

Executive Assault is an indie real-time strategy/first-person shooter computer game where you can not only build your base and create armies, but also take control of your units and fight as one of them.

RTS mode

As the CEO put in charge of taking over the planet, it is your job to build large base complex’s containing all the facilities you need, construct factories to produce robotic troops, research high technology to give you an edge over the competition and of course direct your army to annihilate the opposing company.

Each facility is designed to snap easily together with another to create a seamless complex, which can then be upgraded with defence turrets, doors, forcefields and many other exciting technologies to help defend you from attack.
As well as building you base, you will also need to control your armies to attack, defend and conquer new ground using high tech weaponry and cunning strategies to defeat your opponent. From nimble robots who are the back bone to your army, to heavy tanks and walkers to crush all who oppose. Along side your troops you will have access to long range artillery and missiles to take out unsuspecting units from afar.

Scattered across the map are various resources to help you improve and build your operation, from Thorium crystals to help boost power, to random meteorite impacts to give you rare resources for constructing the most powerful of units.


FPS Mode

Have you ever played your favourite strategy game and wished you were down there with your troops? In Executive Assault you can be!

Take control of any of your units from down on the ground as a robot or tank or take to the skies and bomb from your fighter jets or huge shielded hover cruisers, its completely up to you!

Unlike most RTS games with FPS elements in Executive Assault you will be able to enter the buildings that have been constructed and fight from inside adding a whole new dimension to the RTS genre. Be down there in your robot factory defending it from the oncoming hordes, or assault the opposing power station by breaking in and sabotaging their power grid.

Each unit in Executive assault can be designed and customized to meet the needs of the battle. So if you find your being attacked by heavy walkers, then counter with heavy beam lasers to slice them down to size. Or if you find hordes of little bots are your problem, then upgrade your turrets with machine guns to rip them to shreds. In Executive assault the decision is yours.

Features

  • Command armies and build bases from above.
  • Take control of tanks, robots and aircraft to fully immerse yourself in the combat.
  • Design and construct bases which you can then walk and fight inside.
  • Control doors, turrets, alarm, forcefields to defend against attack.
  • An extensive technology tree featuring over 200 technologies ranging from lasers to weather control.
  • Sneak into the enemy base and steal technology or shut down their power grid.
  • Vast array of planets to explore and strip mine.
  • Multiplayer, as there’s nothing more satisfying then nuking your friends.

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!

Very nice. It's like a 3D Cortex Command.
Best of luck to you, and I'll be watching eagerly.

You were inspired by a game call Urban Assault by Microsoft weren't you?

Looks great though man. Heck I might even buy it when done.

Hmm, not heard of Urban assault, but looks interesting though. The inspiration was more playing RTS/FPS/4x games for over a decade now(shows my age) and thinking "Wouldn't it be exciting to be down there in the combat too?". Also like Rudd in the comment below said about the lack of innovation in RTS, thought it would be fun to make something that has a bit more depth and concentrates on game play and excitement.

Nice to see some innovation in RTS at last! It's been so dead for ages!
