Version 1.199.92

Little fix today.

  • Buggies and tanks should hug the terrain much better and not go under it.
  • Personal Transporter now renamed to Troop Transport.
  • If you are driving a vehicle, you should now be able to drive through the Energy Barrier.

As always if you have any issues please let me know in the bug section and I will take a look.

I have been toying with upgrading EA1 to 64-bit to help improve game play, will this cause any issues for anyone?

Still working on Executive Assault 2 and will have a website up and coming with all the info you need about it (had my first multiplayer game last night with me as CEO running around the station while my mate was on the bridge of his Starship blasting it with lasers).

Happy holidays everyone!

Version 1.199.9

Hi Executives,
This patch is mainly to address a few little issues with the game

  • Updated a few research icons
  • Cluster rocket deals damage again
  • Cluster rocket now takes 4 minutes to research
  • Reduced Cluster rocket damage.
  • When in FPS mode you should no longer go flying into the air, i have tested this a multitude of times so if its still happening please let me know.
  • You now die if you fall into the lava on Cindar.
  • An update to Unity should help with stability.

I know a few of you are looking for something exciting from 1.2 which i know might have disappointed a few of you when I announced that it was actually going to be a new game, but I hope you will get behind me on that one as its going to be amazing! I will of course carry on updating Executive Assault, just remember there's over 140 techs in the game

I think a few new maps are needed, if you have any suggestions please let me know.

The next patch will most likely go straight to straight to 1.2 else its just going to start looking silly.

I am also aware of a few network problems when people disconnect so will be looking at improving that in the next patch along with a few UI fixed, also I believe there is an issue with the gate and the energy barrier.

If there are any more issues or questions please don't hesitate to post about them and as always please post your bugs to the bug section and I will take a look.

“it’s playable, it’s fun, and I feel like it’s tugging on the bits of my brain I’d expect a good RTS to tug.”

“extensive research tree allowing you to create gigantic robots piloted by Martini drinking pilots, orbital strikes that obliterate the whole map, direct control of any unit you choose, cooperative or adversarial multiplayer and continuing updates from the developer all combine to make this one to buy”

About This Game

Executive Assault is an indie real-time strategy/first-person shooter where you can not only build your base and create armies, but also take control of your units and fight as one of them.

RTS mode

As the CEO put in charge of taking over the planet, it is your job to build large base complexes containing all the facilities you need, construct factories to produce robotic troops, research high technology to give you an edge over the competition and of course direct your army to annihilate the opposing company.

Each facility is designed to snap easily together to create a seamless complex, which can then be upgraded with defence turrets, doors, forcefields and many other exciting technologies to help defend you from attack.

As well as building your base, you will also need to control your armies to attack, defend and conquer new ground using high tech weaponry and cunning strategies to defeat your opponent. From nimble robots who are the backbone to your army, to heavy tanks and walkers to crush all who oppose you. Along side your troops you will have access to long range artillery and missiles to take out unsuspecting units from afar.

Scattered across the map are various resources to help you improve and build your operation, from Thorium crystals to help boost power, to random meteorite impacts to give you rare resources for constructing the most powerful of units.

FPS Mode

Have you ever played your favourite RTS game and wished you were down there with your troops? In Executive Assault you can be!

Take control of any of your units from down on the ground as a robot or tank, or take to the skies and bomb from your fighter jets or huge shielded hover cruisers, it’s completely up to you!

Unlike most RTS games with FPS elements, in Executive Assault you will be able to enter the buildings that have been constructed and fight from inside, adding a whole new dimension to the RTS genre. Be down there in your robot factory defending it from the oncoming hordes, or assault the opposing power station by breaking in and sabotaging their power grid.

Each unit in Executive Assault can be designed and customised to meet the needs of the battle. So if you find you’re being attacked by heavy walkers, then counter with heavy beam lasers to slice them down to size. Or if you find hordes of little bots are your problem, then upgrade your turrets with machine guns to rip them to shreds. In Executive Assault the decision is yours.

  • Command armies and build bases from above.
  • Take control of tanks, robots and aircraft to fully immerse yourself in the combat.
  • Multiplayer, as there’s nothing more satisfying than blowing up your friends with cruise missiles.
  • Co-op multiplayer game play where you can build a base in RTS and your friends can play as your robots in a pure FPS mode.
  • Design and construct bases which you can then walk and fight inside.
  • Control doors, turrets, alarms and forcefields to defend against attack.
  • An extensive technology tree featuring over 140 technologies ranging from lasers to Quantum Gateways.
  • Sneak into the enemy base and detonate their power station.
