Space Skulk: Steam Marines

Here’s a wee free dram of roguelike-like for those who enjoy such things of an evening. Steam Marines is a squad-based, turn-based space-based game in which four tiny doomed people wander through a starstriding vessel and get killed by robots. Even though they do die a lot they’re not weaklings, able to smash through metal walls just for the sake of it. Covering entrances and exits seems to be the best way to advance, luring enemies into crossfire. Different weapons and speeds make it important to know each squad member, and there are movement units within each turn, which along with the multiple characters is reason for the extra ‘like’ on roguelike. Trailer with glorious music below.

The alpha is for Windows and Mac, and the Steam Marines are trying to breach Steam via Greenlight. Having its name in your name won’t help, tiny marines, Steam itself is not alive and doesn’t have a vote, and even if it did it might not be so easily won over.
