Store page
Release date: 2003
You have crash-landed on planet Notrium. Your food supplies are running low, a pack of predatory aliens have got your scent. There are no more bullets for your pistol, your only weapon a handful of rocks. The night is coming, and you are desperately looking for wood to make a fire. Notrium is a game of survival.

Notrium is a realtime single player survival game on a strange planet filled with aliens (and depending on your choice, you might be one of those aliens). To survive you must find edible food, build up your base, create weapons and bullets, and fight all sorts of enemies ranging from robots to alien queens. You have a vast randomly generated planet to explore, and there are multiple paths to victory.

Indie classic from 2003.

  • Multiple endings.
  • Four player characters with different game mechanics
  • Dozens of mods. Especially Werivar

I'm surprised to see this wonderful game greenlit! I too have played it since version 1.2, as well as some of it's mods, and it's a very good survival game for its time.

Right now, Notrium is open-source (as a version called OpenNotrium), and has been ported to work on other platforms, including Linux. Here's OpenNotrium on GitHub []!

Played this thing 10 years ago. Would definitely play it again. Hope it gets controller support one day

I love this game so much, and still to this day pick it up every now and again. I think that an updated and polished version would be amazing and probably decently successful. It's got my vote!

Lol, but its still really fun

Awesome, been looking for it for almost a year now. Until I asked my brother and explained the game to him and he just said: "Notrium?" I immediately came to Steam to buy it if it's available and then I saw it's here.

Greenlight it! :D
