Routine, a sci-fi horror game that was announced nearly a decade ago got a new trailer at Summer Game Fest.
In development at Lunar Software, Routine is a first-person space horror game where you explore a lunar base to uncover a deadly mystery. The game features a retro 80s vision of the future in which players use their Cosmonaut Assistance Tool to hack into computer systems throughout the space station while you try to avoid enemies. Once caught however, death is permanent.
The trailer for Routine makes use of in-game footage and has a dark and creepy ambiance but in a futuristic setting. Some robots also make an appearance giving that terrifying Five Nights at Freddy’s vibe when they stare into your soul. According to the developer Lunar Software, the team redid the whole the game and rebuilt it from the ground up to better fit its original vision. Considering how long this game has been in development, I believe that was the right choice considering it might have saved more time than trying to untangle a nearly old spaghetti code.
Routine will also be published by Raw Fury. And Raw Fury’s CEO, Jonas Antonson provided a statement to go along with the new trailer. “Like many others, I have been waiting for this game for a long time,” Antonson said. “Originally, I thought I’d just get to experience it as a gamer and a fan. But then the developers decided to team up with us! I’m beyond excited to go this amazing journey with them.”
Routine will be released on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Game Pass with a release date yet to be confirmed.
