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 really like the game, i bought it and i really like it alot, but one problem, the game seems to be lagging really bad, its almost unplayable. ive tryed everything i can think of and i was hoping maybe you have a suggestion that could help me fix the problem. ive tryed changing my power options on my computer, all the way up to high performance, and it still has no effect. changing settings in game doesnt work either. please help.

I bought the game yesterday and I haven't received the steam key yet.
I have sent an email hoping that Desura's team will fix this...

When you go to Desura.com and click on "Keys" next to Steam Marines there's nothing?

Buyer's remorse in one second upon learning that the current version is STILL STUCK at 8.2a after over a month. And this with a sale on the Desura landing page? Are you kidding me?!?!

You might as well just sell it on Steam and forget the other distro methods if this is how it's going to be with future updates. This happened with several games on Desura who are more Steam-friendly than anything and I'm getting tired of having my patches held hostage by politics. If I was a Steam user, I wouldn't be here purchasing through Desura. Why pamper them and make everyone else wait for months? Dredmor was infamous for update denial and now this looks like the same type of burnt offerings once again. This is unacceptable, sorry. I want a refund.

Update Crusade Progress: Message left on the Worthless Bums forums, two comments left here on Desura, an email fired off to Desura in the form of a complaint, and I also took the liberty of sending a personal email to the dev via blog address.

I'm not expecting miracles here, but when they are pitching an alpha game that has a timestamp of September 4, 2013 on the Desura servers...and then SHOWCASE the game on the landing page for a special sale like it's brand new, I seriously doubt the integrity of this place.

The MCF version is up to date, I was not aware there was an issue like this. Sorting it out now.
