Steam Marines Squad Based Procedural Death Labyrinth Finally Lands On Linux
Steam Marines an excellent looking squad based procedural death labyrinth set on a space-ship has now arrived on Linux after teasers from the developer.
Warning though: Steam sales start tomorrow, so wait before you pick it up.
Steam Marines is a squad based Roguelike set on a steampunk spaceship. It features tactical play focused on positioning and careful use of resources. Built to keep you on your toes as you progress through the decks of your besieged ship while clearing enemies and trying to reach each level's elevator.
Build your marines up into long range or up close death machines, but don't expect any mercy. Death is permanent and fallen marines are gone forever. Finding survivors not guaranteed.
Command up to four marines, each with their own gear, talents, and Action Points. Positioning is critical - even a lone enemy can be lethal! Sight and snipe or funnel enemies into a choke point and blow them up!
Linux users have been asking for a Linux version since October last year at-least and the developer has slowly been working towards porting it. So, it's great to see it happen.
The game itself is still in Early Access, so don't expect a bug-free experience. So, in future you can play Steam Marines on your Steam Machines what fun!
Now if you will excuse me I'm off to ignore the world while I play it to death. Check it out on Steam.
