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.

Hi everyone.


We are happy to announce that Recruits is now available to Steam Early Access!


If you have bought the alpha already you can get your Steam Key on Desura and Indiegamestand right now. People who bought the game through Groupees will be able to get keys in a couple of hours.


Desura:
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.

Thanks for your support!

Hey there!

I recently received Recruits via the Build a Greenlight bundle.

I installed the game, went to launch it (Recruits_Alpha_v0.035\Binaries\Win32\UDK.exe) and I'm greeted by the Create Profile screen. I try to put anything in that blank and click create, but it says Profile Creation Failed. I cannot get any further than this.

Could anybody help me?

The profile saves to a location on your C: drive. C:\Recruits Do you have access to your C: drive or is it called something else. I'll talk to our programmers for you, I'll send you a PM if I get any information that might help. :) Sorry for the inconvience

I don't have a C: drive, that's probably the issue.

May I suggest you never hardcode a location. Make use of windows' documents/mygames location.
