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 v0.7.1a has arrived with a new deck, more robots, and more bang for your future buck!

It's been a long haul with snow and flu and general craziness. But fear not, for Steam Marines is back with a whole new deck based on the Medical Bay of the ship, and a host of robotic invaders ready to chop your stalwart marines into pieces.
Some spaces are wide, some spaces are narrow, and they're all good places to die. Some animations are now in-game, both for marines and enemies new and old. New enemies are getting tougher, more aggressive, and stranger looking:
The camera system has also been reworked, tracking each individual enemy unit during the enemy turn. And hey, Guard Mode actually works properly now!
Part of my work has also been on UI, with a brand new ship mechanic that should be forthcoming, and also an overhaul to the game's main menu screen:
Almost looks like a real game.
Thanks for reading and happy robot hunting!
