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
Oxford, England

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.

Brenda Hailey

Andrew King
Birmingham, England

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

William “Bill” Morgan

Elliot Wood
Brighton, England

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