Full Metal Sergeant - the drill instructor simulator
« on: September 06, 2021, 02:22:53 PM »
Hi everybody!

I'm Carlo and probably some of you remember me (hope in a positive way ;)) for Until the Last Plane. i'm back to you now with my next game: Full Metal Sergeant in which you play the role of a drill instructor. The main goal is to get lazy and useless recruits and transform them into perfect war machines within 12 (virtually) weeks. You have to manage the bootcamp, arrange the zones with equipments, planning the right trainings. Watch out for the recruits stress level, each of them has a different trait and could go crazy under pressure. Lastly there will be competitions against other military camps, for example you'll have to challenge the Coast Guard in a swimming competition.

Hope you guys will find the concept interesting. Stay safe and well!

Fun concept!  Looking forward to seeing more.  :bd:
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

It seems so obvious. Why the hell didn't I think of this?

I'm happy to serve as a technical advisor. Nailing the knife hand will be critical.

Out of curiosity - do you guys in the States have any equivalent to this show..?

Its very entertaining - my favourite line from the "instructors" so far, shouted as someone was struggling to keep afloat in a cold Scottish sea at the foot of a 100ft cliff.. - "what are you doing - don't you dare f***ing drown!"
