First-person scifi horror game Routine gets an Alpha gameplay trailer
Indie studio Lunar Software have issued the gameplay debut trailer for Routine, their non-linear first-person horror exploration game set on an abandoned Moon base that (hopefully) arrives sometime this year on the PC and Mac. Players will investigate the reason behind the disappearance of the desolate station’s inhabitants, with the emphasis on exploration, hiding and survival ensuring tension-filled gameplay.
Furthermore, the game does not feature a HUD or health bar/packs and boasts of perma-death, and the roguelike system makes for unexpected randomness when it comes to hazards, AI locations and items, making each playthrough distinctive, immersive and challenging. Furthermore, there are multiple endings to the game based upon your actions throughout your journey. The footage above is from the Alpha version of the title, and focuses primarily on atmosphere and exploration, though we do get to see a bit of the enemy as well. Impressive visual effects, combined with creepy lighting and immersive audio effects means that this goes on our list of games to keep an eye on.
