Steam Marines is a Squad-Based Tactical Roguelike being developed by Worthless Bums. It features: - 2D retro-styled art and turn based action. - Procedurally Generated Levels. - A squad of combatants fighting for their lives in monster filled levels. - Use your squad to cover defensive positions or funnel enemies into chokepoints to blow them up. Steampunk spaceship under attack by aliens, you say? The aim of the game is to progress through the various decks of your besieged steampunk spaceship in order to repel the alien invaders and get out of dodge. It features permadeath and will have a recruitment system. Build your squad members into deadly, long-range marksmen, or up-close-and-personal death machines. But no one is invincible, and if someone dies you'll have to replace him/her with a raw recruit. If the entire squad dies it's game over.

up rated you guys have just about everything I need in a game, perma death, heavily armed marines, and Steam Punk which is my favorite era ever.
Good luck from the percent complete it appears that you guys will need quite a lot of thumbs up

Thanks a lot! :) My hope is that Valve adjusts the ratings required as time goes by, otherwise niche games are in trouble. Even Project Zomboid is only at 12% with 150k views and 15k favorites!

Yea I get that they want to make sure only the best gets in but at this rate I don't even think the best of the best's best can get through with such a steep requirement
