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.

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.

As much as I love how the game looks as well as the style is it just me who doesn't agree with the US being shown as the good guys in every singly Vietnam game? Not to say that I don't think the US soldiers thought they were fighting for a good cause but the Us government at that time was over aggressive, brutal and militarily was a failure in Vietnam.

Militarily, Vietnam was not that much of a failure... like during the Tet Offensive; it throughly proved America's ability to muster a fighting force against an suprise insurgency attack like the Seige of Khe Sanh and many more, although the public face of military was under scrutiny by the media forced a more compliant war rather than a swift one; worrying what would we look like if we did this, or that... wasnt so much of a problem like this in WWII, even though similiar attrocities did arise too. More lives are evidently lost when wars are dragged out longer; after WWII countries no longer tried to pound each other into submission with everything they have and instead had to settle with a balacing act of Swift but limited military power.

Calling the US Brutal?

There were two massacres, both times the US soldiers who committed said massacres were court marshaled and punished. The NVA did far worse, and would publicly execute political enemies. Not to mention the Vienamese POW system was brutal and inhumane. Vietcong even strapped bombs to children on several occasions, and hid amongst regular villagers.

I agree, the US is shown as the good guys in all of those Vietnam Games. Even though we are using Vietnam as a scenario/base for Recruits, we hope to not focus on whose fighting who, just that there were young men (on both sides) who went to war and fought for their countries. We want to bring action and excitement to you guys in this game, and not to focus on what governments have done in the past. Good Comment Drakel101, hope you like the game when it comes out.
