It’s been a while, but Routine is looking every bit as terrifying as horror fans might’ve hoped, partially thanks to composer Mick Gordon.
ROUTINE is a first-person sci-fi horror game. Set inside an abandoned moon base designed around an ’80s vision of the future, players will explore the decrepit station looking for answers about the events that unfolded there. Armed only with a Cosmonaut Assistance Tool (C.A.T.) to interact with the various computer systems, players must navigate whatever unknown dangers still remain.
In ROUTINE, players will need to outwit and outmaneuver a mysterious threat that lurks inside the decaying lunar complex. 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.Lunar Software press release

As for when it’ll be coming out, there’s yet to be a date announced.
