Sci-fi horror game Routine is still in development

Raw Fury re-revealed Routine during Summer Game Fest 2022.

First announced almost a decade ago, sci-fi horror game Routine got a brand-new trailer during Summer Game Fest. Utilizing in-game footage, this trailer shows that the project has been revived and how much it has matured since its last showing.

Lunar Software has set out to create an immersive world that begs to be explored. Renowned composer Mick Gordon (Doom, Prey, Wolfenstein: The New Order) provides the atmospheric score and sound effects. In addition, Lunar Software has teamed up with indie publisher Raw Fury to support the project.

“Like many others, I have been waiting for this game for a long time,” said Raw Fury CEO Jonas Antonson. “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 on this amazing journey with them.”

Routine is a first-person sci-fi horror game set inside an abandoned moon base. The design is based on a 1980s vision of the future. Players explore the decrepit station looking for answers about the events that unfolded there. First announced in 2013, the game is rebuilt from the ground up.

Here’s a bit more on what you can expect:

Explore the different sections of the station, from abandoned malls to deteriorating living quarters, to piece together the fate of those that once lived there. A minimal UI helps create a more immersive and tense experience as players attempt to run, hide, or defend themselves from any threats that may appear.

Routine is coming to PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Game Pass. No official launch date has been set yet, but players who want to follow the game’s progress can wishlist it on Steam.
