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.

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.

In each level, players will have to move out, saving POW's and civilians, avoiding traps, searching out and killing Enemy Soldiers, destroying enemy buildings and vehicles in order to safely get extracted from the battlefield.

Recruits is an action packed Top Down Shooter that will deliver you and your friends to the front lines of brutal combat situations.

You will need to go to your Collection page (Desura.com). There, you can locate your game and click on the link labeled 'keys' next to it. A window will pop up and provide you with your Steam Key.

Loginto your Indiegamestand account and navigate to your wallet. There you should find your Steam Key.

We hope everyone enjoys the Early Access of Recruits as much as we do and we hope you leave as much feedback as possible. We are working on getting the Desura version up and running for those Desura players, but this may take some time as our team is VERY small and we need to devote a large chunk of development towards this.

Ah thanks for this game! I've really waited for a similar top-down game like Alien Swarm with great physics and graphics. I think that top-down shooters nowadays are unfortunately underestimated.
Will there be all of the multiplayer options also available for singleplayer, too?

Fantastic concept so far!

Well, our current plans for multiplayer is for their too be 2 different modes, Co-Op and Versus mode. Co-Op will allow for up too 4 player work together too accomplish missions and whatnot. Versus is a more traditional team based combat where each player has their own small squad and are duking it out with the enemy team. The actual logistics for how progression between multiplayer and single player is to be handled is still being worked out. Note however that we are having progression be a big part of the game so that the player can actually see results of effort and time they spend playing the game. Im not sure if that answered your question, if not just let us know!

It was more or less the question if there is also a multiplayer skirmish mode or bot support for offline gaming in general. Would be great if this is the case. But these are nice information, too.

Yes their will be a multiplier Skirmish mode. Most likely we will not be having bots, although the way the single player portion works is that their will be the regular mission based games and also Survival mode where you need to hold off waves of enemies (notice that this will be available online as well). We are trying our best to cater this game to both online and offline experiences, and not leave one in the dust.

Are the characters seen in the video logs (the ones that look like rocks) are the final or are they just for test runs or something like that?

Yes they are the default UDK (the engine we are using) characters, we are in the process of replacing them with cool soldiers.

Wow first time I'm hearing about this... Looks very similar to the classic Cannon fodders back on Amiga & PC.

Still I hope the players will also meet some friendly ai soldiers on the field maybe supporting in some areas. Just don't let it look like 4 vs 1000 that would be stupid.

tracking the game & good luck and keep it up it looks very promising.
