Can't wait for the next official update, saying "we're 99% done guys, we swear! Just a couple more weeks at most and the game will be out!"

really sad they cant say anything else but the same line "we are very close"..... RIP
tommy_beast Feb 13 @ 6:04am 
They've been saying the same shit for 6 years. "We are very close", "We are too busy to communicate with you people", "The game is still in development".

It's all lies.

hm interesting! hopeful!

"We are going very strong" though "things have been a bit rough on the personal side". Before we announce a new release date we want to be certain the game can be finished by then.'

"We are very close to the finish line so don't worry, Routine is literally all we do, there is no danger of it not being released."

October 2017

'Routine is not dead; we're just facing "awkward development issues [...] which have slowed us down a bit!" We'll announce a release date as soon as we can be sure we'll make it.'

[/b]March 2017[/b]

'We said we could probably have finished the game by the end of 2016, and we kind of did. Much of the game is ready to go Gold, but we aren't fully happy with one aspect. "We don’t expect the delay to add more than a month or two." The next update will have a 100% certain release date for a game we can be proud of.'
SixFootTurkey64 Feb 11 @ 7:48am 
October 2016

'We wanted to wait to post a new update until we had substantial info -- "Routine finally has a release date (release window to be more exact)!" We probably could have the game finished by the end of 2016, but that would be poor timing and we don't want to rush things anyways.'

March 2016

'We can't give an exact release date, but "there are no big tasks left to do, we are absolutely on the tail end."

January 2016

'Routine will "absolutely" release in 2016'.
SixFootTurkey64 Feb 11 @ 7:47am 
December 2015

'We're "currently putting 100% of our time into development", right now working on adding the small details (no more placeholders!) and working towards a polished, enjoyable game. Slow process though, and we underestimated the amount of work this project would be. "We promise that once we get closer to release we will be a bigger presence on Steam and Facebook."

March 2015

'We're deep into development now (too late to upgrade to Unreal 4), and have been replacing much of the placeholder work and fleshing out the game. Work is speeding up as there's little prototyping left. "It feels like Progress is going better than ever."t probably not" coming in April... "but let’s just say that it is still set to release in 2013."
SixFootTurkey64 Feb 11 @ 7:47am 
February 2014

'Development is going well but there's much left to be done; we don't want to announce a deadline that we won't be able to meet. "we just don’t want to disappoint anyone by failing to meet a deadline or compromising on the quality to meet it, neither of those options are good."

March 2013

'We said the game would be out in April 2013, but we've majorly expanded the scope and scale of the game so it's "most probably not" coming in April... "but let’s just say that it is still set to release in 2013."

that video is a lie, in August 2017 the mail said they are very close to release, guess it was a lie, to me very close is like a month or so its been 4 months and still no word lol.... for them maybe very close is like valve time meaning 3 years from release stil....
Dramocle Jan 11 @ 7:24am 
Nonameus Jan 9 @ 8:00pm 
Same story as with Half-Life 3, maybe released this year or maybe in 2020 or maybe in 2073...
tommy_beast Jan 3 @ 3:45am 
@duandutoit14 No.
duandutoit14 Jan 3 @ 1:18am 
Will Routine be released this year?
tommy_beast Dec 30, 2017 @ 2:36am 
That't just another lie. If they really cared they would've given some news at the end of the year. This is by far the most ignorant dev.
SixFootTurkey64 Dec 25, 2017 @ 4:18pm 
People on Reddit say the devs have recently told them that "We are very close to the finish line so don't worry, Routine is literally all we do, there is no danger of it not being released."
plenum Dec 25, 2017 @ 1:15pm 
When is this being released? I am extremely interested!
buzrobot Dec 22, 2017 @ 11:50pm 
Bilimkurgu, fakat sanki bu oyun diğerlerinden farklı, atmosferi ile kendisini merak ettiren, gizeme davet eden bir yapısı var. Bulmacaların olduğu koridorlarında dolaşmak, tehditlerden uzaklaşmak, hayatta kalmayı başarmak ve hikayenin sonuna ulaşmak... Permadeath sisteminin oyunun ciddiyetini, hikaye-olay örgüsünü korumak için kullanılmış olması da hoşuma gitti. Bu kış oynayabilmek isterdim. Başarılar dilerim Routine ekibi.
Just Kidding Dec 8, 2017 @ 4:01pm 
Release date 3020, on a retro old school platform known as peecee.
ZIGS Dec 2, 2017 @ 9:12am 
They got into bed with a publisher and the delay is to make console ports and release on all platforms simultaneously. Mark my words. Also, I hope you like pre-order bonuses, special editions, etc because all that crap is coming too. It's basically what happened with We Happy Few

Lol, remember last year people posted Aaron's weet about releasing the game in 2016? Told you that was a lie.
shogg Nov 26, 2017 @ 1:48pm 
@duandutoit14 didn't you get the memo? @Ehlde sent it a day before.
On the other hand
to be sure
we should keep up flogging the dead horse.
duandutoit14 Nov 26, 2017 @ 2:24am 
also is there a demo on steam of it and will it came on ps4?
duandutoit14 Nov 26, 2017 @ 2:23am 
Will the Routine game be released on the end of January??

Someone please tell me the release date of Routine! :steamsad:
SixFootTurkey64 Nov 21, 2017 @ 8:59am 
It already is outdated. The game was built with Unreal 3 and the devs aren't going to move it to Unreal 4 because Routine is "too far into development" (they said that 2.5 years ago). Even if the game came out today it would almost guaranteed look and feel years old already.
zeusz4u Nov 21, 2017 @ 8:31am 
It takes so much to release this game (posted 5 years ago on Greenlight), that when it eventually comes out (if ever) - the graphics will be so outdated for a 2017 game...

pizzafork123 Oct 29, 2017 @ 9:11am 
Still no updates. Surely it's not that hard to post a three paragraph announcement about how progress is going. If there is no progress just come out and say it. The radio silence is somewhat insulting (✌'ω')✌
Just Kidding Oct 28, 2017 @ 10:46am 
Tartarus is an atmospheric puzzle game, not a perma-death horror game.
shogg Oct 27, 2017 @ 12:34am 
@tommy_beast nice tip. It's called Tartarus. And developers are chatty on their steam discussion page.
