Indie Game Developer Based in Australia, Commotion Games Pty Ltd launched their pre-alpha game over a year ago, now they are proud to announce the launch of their top down shooter game, ‘Recruits’ on PC via Steam Early Access for $9.99 today, though until August 7th players will be able to purchase for $8.99. Get your hands on a game that has both single player and multiplayer support with an array of features that are completed and those that are still in the works.
‘Recruits is inspired by many classic military top down shooter games from years ago.’ You are a leader and you must take command of your squad during this time in war, and lead them into victory. In order to lead your squad to victory, you will need to accomplish missions, keep your team alive, gain medals and more. In the process of fighting in this war and accomplishing missions, you will gain experience from completing them, get to upgrade weapons and customize your team.
“Recruits has been supported by thousands of players on Desura…” said Robert Dukes, Founder of Commotion Games Pty Ltd “…and being a very small team developing Recruits, we’re so thrilled to finally be able to offer our game to Steam players after they helped us get Greenlit many months ago.”
