Call For Backup will tell you the story of what happened in an alternate timeline where the Third Reich lost the Second World War after being defeated by the Polish. Meanwhile, a brutal dictatorship took power over the United States, and Stalin and his accolade Rasputin created GULag EUROPE. The Third World War destroyed humanity in the 1960s, but not all life has perished.
As mysterious ghoul hordes keep people locked underground, both governments send robotic drones to the surface so they can continue the war.
About Call for Backup
Call For Backup is the spiritual successor to one of the most innovative real-time strategies in recent years, Radio Commander, but with a twist! Serious Sim, the team behind Radio Commander, wasn’t interested in developing a safe and obvious continuation. That’s why Call For Backup is a weird, funny, bold, and ambitious mix of two genres. It’s a real-time strategy, where the player possesses limited knowledge about the battlefield, and a fast-paced twin-stick shooter.
The game shares a commander view with Radio Commander and includes a single-player campaign but is best played in co-op mode with up to four players. While up to three players control drones on the surface, the commander looks over the strategic map, sending supplies and bombardments. But the commander can’t see the whole situation, which is why constant communication within the team is crucial for success.
Call For Backup is being developed by Serious Sim and will be published on Steam Early Access in 2022 by Games Operators.
