Commotion Games

Commotion Games Pty Ltd is an Australian based independent game development studio founded by Robert Dukes in 2012. Our goal is to create fun, high quality experiences and push ourselves to learn new skills and strive to make better games. Starting off in the modding community and then in late 2012 releasing an Alpha of our top-down shooter ‘Recruits’ we have branched into the mobile market to release apps on the iOS and Android app stores. We are a small team comprised of a handful of talented individuals who all work full time jobs and use their spare time to contribute towards the company goals.

Recruits - Make Heroes. Make History.

Recruits is a brutal fast paced top down shooter that puts the lives of countless amounts of soldiers in your command. Lead your men to victory and see them progress through the ranks, show them defeat and they will be lost forever. Your role as a commander puts you in charge of managing a platoon of soldiers during the war. Take men into battle one squad at a time to accomplish your missions, along the way gaining experience and respect that allows you to better equip and customize your soldiers. Only by keeping your men alive, gaining medals and awards and defeating an overwhelming amount of enemies can you hope to be victorious during this time in history.
