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.
I don't give out 10's ratings often.
This game completely deserves this though in my opinion.
The tactical depth is very nice, overal feeling is great.
Given the fact that more features are still to be implemented (review was made on 07.09.2013) i cannot even imagine the incoming awesomeness :D
- cool pixel art (a thing i am usually against in most modern games)
- steampunk setting
- turn based, tactical gameplay
- allows multiple ways of dealing with enemies, depending on what squad you have, which way you choose/make, etc
- upgradable squad members
- lots of fun!
Awesome Game! Will await further updates :)
