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.
I would like to give you guys a quick message from us here at Commotion Games, offering a little insight to Recruits.

I want to give you guys a quick message from us here at Commotion Games, offering a little insight to Recruits. So check out the game play video below (in HD).
Keep in mind that this is still a Work In Progress. Our characters are not in game yet, sounds are not final, art and HUD are not final... basically everything will be improving! But enjoy the shooting and explosions :)
Now, a lot of people have been wondering, "Where is your cool concept art? and your awesome cinematic trailers?" Simply put, we don't have any. Now I'm not saying we don't think those things are important. They are! It creates publicity, and excitement about our game, and we can't wait to get these made for everyone. However, being a small team of 2 part time programmers, and myself as an artist, we want to focus on making a fun and exciting game!
Our goal is simple... Let's make an Awesome game!
We have also slightly changed direction with our levels. We were going to do fairly linear type scripted levels, but you can probably tell from this video that we are opening things up somewhat, and giving you, the player, a chance to make your own way in the levels. We have had a few people test this so far and it feels like the right direction for us to go in.
I also want to thank people for commenting on the game as well. Giving us feedback and things to change and fix... keep it up! It has improved the game already and the more feedback we get the better.
We are still including all the features we have planned out for Recruits, but we are making the levels flow better and simpler to play. Being a small team, we found that we had a bit of feature creep and we deviated from our plan. We are now back on track and the game is more fun than ever!
