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.
Steam Marines v0.5.8a has arrived with new sounds, directional sprites, and other goodies!

Everything is looking great. For v0.5.8a we've got new sounds from Tapio Liukkonen, directional sprites for Detocroix, and gameplay tweaks and changes to alleviate the difficulty concerns of players. There's also some really awesome steampunk music you'll all get to hear on August 30th!
Also a very special thanks to two people - Robert Shenton for making this Steam Marines logo out of the kindness of his heart:
