Radio Commander is a realistic real-time strategy game, in which the player uses only a radio and a map to command their troops on the battlefield.
Radio Commander is a realistic real-time strategy game set during the Vietnam War.
But this is not just another RTS, where you are an invisible being, hovering over the battlefield. In Radio Commander, situation reports are given to you in the form of dramatic radio statements sent by troops fighting on the ground. The only tools at your disposal are a radio and a situation map where you can place tags and notes.
Inspired by many real stories, Radio Commander is the tale of young American GI's caught in a brutal war that cannot be won. Far away from their country, betrayed by politicians, left alone in the jungle, and forced to fight with an invisible, well trained, and very determined enemy.
- Beautifully animated briefings before every mission
You give orders and track the situation based only on radio reports and your map. You will never have a full picture of what is actually happening on the battlefield. You will have to listen carefully and make very precise plans.
In war, there are no obvious right and wrong situations. You will be forced to make tough choices and face their outcome. Will you risk the life of your men to save the not-so-innocent civilians? Or will you allow your men to fire at will, knowing there will be collateral damage?
We are not interested in telling heart-warming fairytales about all-American heroes. What we are interested in are mature, complex, well researched stories about a war that cannot be won, two torn-up nations, and war atrocities. That's why player-commanded troops will have to face not only the enemy, but also extreme weather and booby traps. Moreover, they will fight to win the hearts and minds of South Vietnamese civilians, while knowing that every person they meet on their way can be a Vietcong fighter.
Radio Commander will be our first published game, so you can believe we are very motivated to create the best game possible. You know, you only have one chance to make the first impression and all that.
