The AMC Squad is an epic story-driven FPS running on the Build Engine. It combines gameplay mechanics of retro-shooters with aspects of modern titles, complete with a story-driven narrative that spans over several episodes.
Each episode is a full-length campaign featuring multiple varied locations to explore and many hidden secrets and collectibles to discover. Experience an overarching story that is loosely based on the worlds and settings of other classic Build Engine games. Pick from more than 8 different character classes, each with a unique loadout of items, weapons and abilities, and fight a large selection of different enemy factions that threaten the safety of the world.
The game currently contains 4 fully playable episodes, with 6 episodes planned total.
The AMC Squad is a paramilitary group formed by a man whose identity is unknown to all but a select few in the EDF and EAF. Using funds from both agencies, he hired an old friend to track down 7 of the best and most skilled fighters in the Solar System, after the disappearance of Earth's greatest hero. This squad was formed to tackle the most severe threats to Earth's safety, including fighting off the notorious Cycloid race of aliens. However, they inadvertently set into motion a sequence of events that dramatically increase the scale of conflict, and they must soon deal with a threat that is new to even the most supernatural members of the team.
Can you fight as the AMC Squad, and take care of this threat? Will you scour the battlefield, find and acquire research and equipment and tackle the threat strategically, or simply run in guns blazing? Will you choose to play as Sangluss, a warlock with great power who overcame a dark past? Or as Merlijn, a knight from Holland who wields ancient weaponry to deadly effect? As Mikko, the cybernetic leader of MS Corp industries, who brings a range of deadly and hi-tech weaponry to the battlefield? Or as Highwire, who relies only on his good old-fashioned military rifles, and a trusty bottle of Vodka?
Whomever you choose, be prepared for the fight of a lifetime.

First of all, happy new year. We're happy to see that Episode 4 was received very well despite it being a fairly different experience to the previous episodes, especially with the focus on a fantasy setting. Originally the Ringworld was to just be the first half of episode 4, but we decided that it deserved much more space and justice than just being the starting portion of an episode could provide, and ultimately didn't really contribute to any significant delay. We actually managed to push the episode out nearly half a year earlier than the usual 4 year gap, and that was with 2 additional significant updates (the art redux and then the 10th anniversary)
Mikko has published his review of episode 4, which you can see here - if you've made a review of AMC Squad or a YouTube video covering it, by all means share it with us here or on our Discord
Needless to say we're incredible grateful to all the votes you've cast for us - we've managed to breach the top hundred before but this is the first time we've made the top ten, beating out some very heavy contenders.
Work on episode 5, Perfect Storm, started not long after the last patch; several of our mappers had already started work on maps for episode 5; release will still be some considerable time away, but we're hoping to beat this episode's record and get the final 2 episodes out much sooner. You can see the first released screenshot as well as the poster for episode 5 by sebabdukeboss20 in our media tab here. As usual we keep pretty quiet with development, so don't feel disheartened if there's big stretches of time without any updates (but as I've plugged before, our discord is active so join there if you want more info or ask us some questions) We've also finally updated the tiny hard to read conversation font for this episode, no more straining your eyes!
We're always in need of mappers to help make the scope of the project possible. The same goes for voice actors, we're mainly looking for more female VAs to help out as well as older males to voice some of our more gruff characters. Post on our discord for more info!
