they are working on it, just suck at communication about it

I believe that in MINIMUM Steam MUST be for the sake of MORAL to answer to your audience the reason for the cancellation !!!
mortuus Oct 15 @ 5:47am 
Just come out already and post on your website that the game is currently not under development or being cancelled. Seriously, stop fooling people, not posting anything is the worst thing you can do, it pisses off people the most.

vapourware. This game's never releasing.

There's no reason to speculate. This is just more of the same the fans have always gotten (or not gotten rather) from the devs. It's the same old regurgitated nonsense, but, you know, I'm sure *this time* it's different.... [/sarcasm]

Many company's will stretch things out as long as possible where they are dealing with internal issues but eventually a statement must be made or interested party's simply find something else to keep themselves entertained which translates to lost sales for the company. Simple as that. I love the premise of Routine as well but with STN now in internal build testing by the mods and half a dozen other games coming this year I will quickly lose interest as I'm sure many will unless the devs start actively communicating. It's their party.

If it was a game related blocker I doubt the radio silence would of been so servere. Nah I suspect some bad dogshit popped up putting a spanner in the works. The wording of the shared email on reddit is peculiar.
The pies not bad Sep 21 @ 9:57am 
Based on the reddit thread I'd say games still being worked on but more info is needed. Wonder if a team member left or legal issue poped up.
Wroaw//o[x_X]o Sep 20 @ 9:36am 
Routine is almost finished!!! But, Aaron got a pimple and delayed it until xmas 2023.
Raptor Sep 17 @ 5:33pm 
At this point I'm expecting a March 2018 release. If they were afraid to release this game during the Summer Sale, they're sure as shit not going to release it along side the Fall AAA juggernauts.

lolwut report what? for what?
tommy_beast Sep 8 @ 4:06pm 
Vaporware now. Report this shit as scam and be done with it.
^('.'^AGw Sep 5 @ 9:17am 
never ever
mortuus Sep 2 @ 9:03am 
the problem they have is that the game will never be finished.. lol otherwise why hold out whats the problem, publishing problem??!

I have waited for this game for almost five years. I will continue to wait until the day I die. I am so ready.
ZIGS Sep 1 @ 9:51am 
Well, it's good they finally said something but it was necessary for someone to reach out to them. Was it so hard to just come out and say "look guys, there's some problems we're still trying to solve but the game is still coming out eventually!"
SixFootTurkey64 Sep 1 @ 8:26am 
thanks Venx!

How many dev's does it take to change an engine?

Who the F*#K knows, noone was there to answer my question.
ZIGS Aug 28 @ 6:40am 
That game has nothing to do with Routine. Also looks really bad, full of post-processing effects. It's like the screen if covered in vaseline.
Ehlde Aug 28 @ 5:51am A cheaper ver of Routine,it seems to use the same assets (even enemies),and they said they delayed it a lot cause were working on enviroments,this seems developed by the same guys also cause it missed release date too :D

Este juego tiene el mismo destino que el Hal Life 3,NO SALIR NUNCA!

Looking forward to Aaron's release date delay announcement after I finish HL3 and start downloading Star Citizen open beta.

Half life 3 is suppose to release in Q7 of this year, along with this game and the new Tool album, pending a 10,000 day hold.

It doesn't matter that nobody is out any money here. People have invested time, patience, faith, etc. in the devs. Don't think for a second that just because money hasn't changed hands that nobody has the right to voice their feeling about what has and hasn't happened regarding Routine. Respect the fact that people are disappointed, discouraged, and pessimistic. They have good reason to be.
crazycupmuffin Jul 8 @ 2:18pm 
@mute. Eh? What you on? I never mentioned anything about money or being scammed. Stop associating what I said with fantasies in your mind.
tommy_beast Jul 3 @ 12:13am 
Even their god damn website is dead.
Sicreate Jul 2 @ 6:29pm 
mortuus Jul 2 @ 7:49am 
mute. because they waste everyone time by not releasing it ?
mute. Jul 2 @ 4:47am 
@crazycupmuffin, you sound like devs are asking for your money or something. Like you've been scammed.

Been waiting for 5 years and still waiting
ZIGS Jun 30 @ 8:08pm 
With any luck, it might even come out this year!
SixFootTurkey64 Jun 30 @ 8:06pm 
Yeah. Eventually.
Caimthereaper Jun 30 @ 8:04pm 
Is this game still coming out?
Ehlde Jun 28 @ 11:01am 
@Custer701 it'll be the same story over and over,every year is full of amazing games and of every kind of genre,video games marketplace is unstoppable,the game should release when it's ready,and it probably will look old when it will come.
Custer701 Jun 27 @ 7:00pm 
These devs have some rather illustrious competition to contend with being Prey just came out and there are several other games in the space/horror survival genre that are in the pipe now...System Shock remake...System Shock 3...Far Out...Ariel,etc. They have to be careful when they release because another game could trump them and overshadow their release. I saw this happen to several games when Half Life 2 came out back in 2004.

>Nwii : Surprise no one knows about this or posted it
I'm sure no one is talking about the moment they broke promised dead-line

A couple years ago they said they were finishing up and were in the process of replacing place holder assets. In just a few years, surprise, they're almost done again, just finishing up again.
On the one hand, I liked the idea that they weren't cutting their losses like most games do, where they promise a thousand new features then literallly cut every single new thing at release, so they basically just re-release the same game over again, but at this point it genuinely looks like another Duke Nukem.

I was rooting for this game from day 1 and referred every one I know for greenliight votes. Now Greenlight is toast and the game is floating in limbo.
Not surprised about greenlight death. A couple hundred mine craft clones. People greenlighting games then not buying them. Eating up servers for shit nobody wants.
Nwii Jun 24 @ 3:05am 
Surprise no one knows about this or posted it:

It seems that the game is near-completion but needs a bit more time
to polish or whatnot.

It was posted back in March 2017 so it wasn't too long ago
this was talked about...

Sucks this game is still in developement but I'm used to it, what with
other games I've waited many long years for... (FFXV, BG&E2 that's recently surfaced, etc).

That and knowing game-dev isn't simple and does take a ton of time...
Hopefully when this game "eventually" comes out in the future, it'll be
worth the wait and not turn out to be trash.

I do agree, I feel the team should try to post a bit more on their
progress with the game...small twitter posts from time to time would've
been enough. Oh well.
