Routine, Not Just Another Horror Game

The horror genre is starting to feel crowded with all these announcements recently. However, Routine stands out from the crowdt by being a non linear game that features permanent death.

There will also be no health packs, or HUD. Indeed, this will be a hardcore game. Normally, I’d be skeptical about the commercial success of such a game, but with the popularity of Day – Z, it’s hard to not acknowledge the large audience that such hardcore games have.

What’s really genius about this game, is that even though it’s permanent death, you still have all the knowledge you procured from your previous lives. As a result, you’ll know where to go next life. Or, more importantly, where not to go.

In this way, you’ll still have the heart pounding action of trying to survive, without the immense frustration of losing all your previous progress.
