We don't know whether aliens exist or not but we sure do like shooting them in video games. Rogue Continuum is in keeping with this tradition, a co-op roguelike dungeon crawler (or space crawler, or planet crawler) about "borderline psychopaths" mowing down hordes of brightly-coloured extraterrestrial life on far off planets (probably planets belonging to the extraterrestrials, because you know, humans are terrible).
Steam is not lacking in games with a roguelike twist, and like a lot of other 'lighter' roguelikes Rogue Continuum features a persistent progression system, lending some permanence to the stat and weapon upgrades you'll find in-game. Never fear though, because death takes you back to the beginning of the game. The video below shows a co-op shooter vaguely reminiscent of a top down Mercenary Kings or Borderlands. It hits Early Access next month, and releases proper in 2016.
