Sci-Fi Survival Horror Game Routine Set to Arrive March 2017; Gets New Trailer

on October 31, 2016 4:00 PM

Today, developer Lunar Software announced that its sci-fi survival horror game, Routine, is set to finally arrive on PC sometime in March 2017. To accompany the announcement, the developer also released a new tense-filled trailer.

As you may know, the developer had previously hinted the game may release in late 2016, however, citing not wanting to rush the final hurdle, and wanting to avoid Steam Christmas Sales, the developer decided on March.

For those who don’t know, Routine is a first-person survival horror set on an abandoned Moon Base designed after an “80’s vision of the future.” In the game, players are tasked with uncovering bits of data and information (while also surviving the base’s various terrors) to find the truth behind disappearance of everyone stationed on the Lunar Research Station.

Here’s a list of the game’s core features via its Steam page:

  • A non linear experience lets you explore any part of the fully open Moon base and find out secrets that other players may not!
  • Be immersed with Full body awareness, Deadzone aiming, no HUD, no health bars or points system… you must run, hide and survive the best you can against what lurks in the base.
  • There are no health packs or multiple lives, in Routine there is a Perma death system that will keep you on the edge!
  • Multiple endings based on what actions you take.

Alongside the announcement, one of the game’s three developers, Aaron Foster, said the following to all the fans the game has amassed through Steam Greenlight and its development:

“We hope you enjoy the trailer and that it can make the final months until release a little easier, we can’t thank you all enough for being so patient and supportive over these years. It’s incredibly motivating to read your kind messages even when development has took so much longer than expected.”

An exact release and price point are currently unknown.
