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.

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

Groupees:
Groupees Keys are all ready to go now - log into your Groupees profiles, you will see a key under the Build a Greenlight Bundle tab.

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.

If this were a first person shooter, im sure it would be good, or hell even a third person, as long as its a view like grand theft auto, mercenaries, saints row, that sort of view... But since its some gay top down thing, it sucks ***...

It looks like the art has been made to suit that camera view. You can't just go changing a camera view without there being serious repercussions. I think it's refreshing to have something not a third person shooter, or first person shooter that is being done in the current decade.

There's already a place (well reserved and instantiated in fact based on just some of the titles you mentioned alone, along with many MANY more).

I'd love to see more arcadey/retro style games be redone, rather than gameplay that's rehashed from the same decade over and over again. There used to be such great moments in gameplay that are clearly lacking these days allowing for such a large uprising of next-gen remakes of classics.

Just because a camera angle doesn't suit you, no need to be so drastically harsh and write a game off completely. I'm sure if it was labelled Call of Duty 10 (or some other heavily sequel based intellectual property game) you might think twice about posting.

I'm glad to see that the majority of others are embracing it and giving encouraging support to what is such a small and obviously very dedicated team attempting to get things going from the ground up, I can see a lot of blood, sweat, dedication, motivation and time being invested already and looks like there's going to be a load more to come.

Keep up the great work, I look forward to seeing future updates!

Yes! I am a great fan of Cannon Fodder. It is one of the reasons we have decided to make this game :) Thanks for Tracking
