Steam Marines v0.8.8a now has a Linux version (tested on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS). The Alien Deck did not make it in this build, but a bevy of bug fixes, UI/UX changes, and performance gains have come through.

Hi, everyone!

Lots of little quality of life stuff this build. Enemy AI speed scaling, New Game Plus difficulty ramping, fog of war and camera interaction, and cursor and event message tweaks. You can also discard your Hulk Suit with the reload key - handy if you need access to your non-Hulk Suit potential.

The big boy of the build is the Matrix. He's... oversized. But does stuff go in that mouth of his... or out? Maybe both! And he doesn't seem to turn - weakness or strength?

That completes the bosses for each of the five decks of the steampunk spaceship. Aside from implementation tweaks I'm moving on to the Alien Deck and some curious new enemy AI mechanics.


Happy robot hunting!

This builds brings some big changes and a ton of bugfixes in preparation for beta.

The files data.mod and dialogue.mod expose in-game data for enterprising modders. Profiling tools were added to the console, and you can now opt-in to send Steam Marines play data to a server for tweaking/balance reasons (no private data sent; opt-in only!) This may also pave the way for a leaderboard or other online components.

Also, PEWPEW!

Marines get a new class to help them kick nasty robots and aliens off their ship - the Engineer. Submachine gun? Check. Hacking consoles and PDAs? Check. High tech looting? Check check check.

The new perk system is available upon Squad Creation. Extra Laser Sight damage. Bonus enemy spotting experience. More Hulk Suit flamethrower carnage. You'll need it for the new Medical Deck boss... the Brainien.

Marines get new fire/reload/projectile animations, a random event system is introduced, a bunch of balances and tweaks were implemented, and bugs were squashed! Space weather was rolled into the new random event system. Watch out for gamma rays!

Two new game options 1) 0 AP facing, and 2) auto-facing toggle allows for easier repositioning and simplified gamepad (dpad) play.
