Worthless Bums is an indie game company founded in 2011. Currently it is developing Steam Marines, a squad based Roguelike. The company was founded to make games with retro art but new twists on old gameplay. It is currently a PC/Mac oriented game maker but hopes to expand to Linux and possibly mobile devices in the future.
