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 v0.7.0a is out with new enemies and quality of life upgrades!

Hello, everyone! If you enjoy the builds, please do head on over and vote for Steam Marines on Steam Greenlight!
Very busy holidays but I'm back in the swing of things. This build features two new enemies:
The sadly named Bucket:
And the Thopter:
While bigger Brutes and Flamejacks might just outright annihilate your squad, these enemies are higher speed and weaker damage but can force your squad apart and reduce their next turn's action points. In other words, don't let them out maneuver you.
I had bigger plans for this build, but time got in the way! Trying to fix/power elevators, fend off waves of enemies converging on your location, and bosses! Here's a little teaser about the future of Steam Marines:
Also, I'd like to mention that Northernlion did a Let's Play of Steam Marines a little while ago! A very cool cat and passionate about what he does.
