Horrifying robots give chase in Routine alpha video

If you can make it through this alpha footage of Routine without shivering, you're more courageous than us. Let's set the scene: the first-person horror game from tiny studio Lunar Software takes place on a deserted moonbase.

Its disappeared crew left behind clues regarding their fate, and players are free to explore wherever they want in search of them. But just because no other people are around doesn't mean you're alone...

The distinct, hard sci-fi aesthetic (it's like Moon and System Shock 2 had a baby!) would be enough to intrigue us, even without the promise of randomized hazards to overcome and clues to analyze. Throw in permadeath and Oculus Rift support and the cash is running, screaming, from our wallets.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
