The [Soo-pur-floo-uh s] is a cave-diving, sci-fi, squad based, rogue, platformer with jet packs, and a fun story.'The Superfluous' is what I like to call a rogue-lite. You start the game with a small crew and go on cave dives. If a crew member dies while on a dive that crew members level goes back to zero. This makes it possible to successfully complete a dive and return with the loot, but still suffer the loss of the crew's death.
Levels reward crew with a random powerful perk (+max health, faster firing, faster reload, explosion proof, spike proof, etc). If all your crew dies on a mission you lose all the crews levels and perks as well as any loot you collected during that dive. You keep all the previous upgrades, the crew members you unlocked, and the '' unlocked from previous dives.
