military drama
A dramatic saga about ordinary soldiers in a life-changing situation torn between their beliefs, duty and desire to survive at any cost.
Tactical RPG
Plan the moves and actions of each squad member, then simultaneously execute them all in real time. Use the traits and abilities of each soldier wisely to outwit the enemy, and make it through another day in hell.
intense missions
Take part in skirmishes in the heart of enemy territory. A sharp tactical mind will be needed to successfully complete these compact yet intense missions. Be careful - your tactical mistakes might hurt the morale of your soldiers, and they may desert the squad!
Raymond “Ray” Avery
Glasgow, Scotland

A hot-headed Scotsman, Avery keeps a sarcastic distance to everything related to the war. Avery is a quick decision maker, but poor at dealing with the consequences.

Combat style: Will charge while yelling, with his finger dancing on the trigger, doing his best to scare the enemy.

Rosie Conner
Southampton, England

Conner is considered the most eccentric member of the team and carefully guards her private life. She works best when alone and tends to isolate herself from the rest of the team, only ever getting close to the team’s female doctor.

Combat style: She prefers to stay back and provide covering fire for the team.

Ernest Fry

The youngest in the squad and an educated combat medic, Fry has high ideals and the squad often perceives him as self-righteous — and they’re not far off.

Combat style: Will play it safe and not take any risks.

Brenda Hailey
Belfast, N.Ireland

Formerly a field medic, Hailey was handed a gun at the front one dire day and asked to fight, since then, she never looked back. She bullies green recruits like Fry to keep her mind busy.

Combat style: Will use her experience, quick reflexes, and drugs to survive.

Andrew King
Birmingham, England

A big, intimidating man from a family with a strong tradition of military service, King has the talent to manipulating people. For him, morality is a grey zone meant to be challenged.

Combat style: King is obsessed with succeeding at everything and prefers to go into battle slowly with heavy firepower.

Steve Sherman
London, England

Sherman became a radio operator due to his talents and interests in electronics. He tries to avoid unnecessary violence and has a strong sense of justice.

Combat Style: Will try to spare as many lives possible — on both sides.

William “Bill” Morgan
Manchester, England

An iron-willed veteran with solid experience in leadership and combat. His best days are behind him, but he’s too stubborn to show any weakness.

Combat style: Bill approaches all tasks in an orderly fashion, firing calmly with calculated precision.

Elliot Wood
Brighton, England

A charming young recruit with a disarming smile, Wood’s lean frame makes him the squad’s fastest runner.

Combat style: Will use speed to avoid direct conflict, and is ever the optimist.

Experience a character-driven story about a group of soldiers separated from their loved ones, and stranded in a foreign land.
