An Immersive Sci-Fi Adventure Game

In 2128, the world’s population is struggling for a better future. The Earth is hot, overcrowded, and divided by technology. With no options left, Sebastian Mar decides to join a dangerous celestial mining mission light years away.

Hevn is an immersive, story-driven sci-fi adventure, set on an isolated planetoid orbiting a distant star. As Sebastian, you’ll navigate the physical and political dangers of Nomoni Inc’s highly controversial celestial mining efforts.

Although assisted by robots and a central AI system, you’ll still have to use your ingenuity to survive. Watch your health, fatigue and mental state to make it by on this faraway rock. But as you find yourself caught up in a twisting story of interstellar intrigue, you might find yourself with more than your own survival on your mind...

Inspired by classic immersive simulations such as System Shock and Deus Ex, Hevn is a survival game with a difference: one that invites you to investigate a series of rich environments and uncover a complex and human story.

Available Spring 2017 on PC and Mac.

The premise a bit reminds me of 2009 film Moon.

Calling it "low effort" is bit hyperbolic. There is a shit ton of effort that goes into making games. I'd only reserve a low effort label for things like goat simulator which are hoping to get by on appealing to tards rather than quality.

God damn it, that title... Now everyone may think I'm a fanboi of this game. It had better be exceedingly good, or quickly fade into obscurity.

Reminds me more of Half Life. Even the sound effects are similar.

Looks like a budget System Shock 2.5. The video has combat and shooting, but looks somewhat clunky. Will this be the Routine game we never got?
