Industria blends dated architecture with cold and mysterious futuristic structures. Its gameplay doesn't break the mould but it is well thought out and enjoyable throughout. Fans of FPS and adventure titles will feel right at home playing this unusual game.

Overall though, Bleakmill and Headup Games’ Industria is a decent adventure through a parallel world to our own. With a bit of discovery to find out what happened and quiet and atmospherically heavy locations to explore, while a short adventure it was one that I looked forward to going through a second time to find certain smaller elements that were missed the first time around while playing on a harder difficulty.

Industria takes inspiration from title like Bioshock and Half-Life, featuring a fantastic story with some decent gunplay and puzzles as well.

As developer Bleakmill’s debut title, Industria offers an interesting premise for a surreal game that warrants a sequel.

With such banal gameplay, we turn to the narrative here for hope and, even though it kicks off in a promising manner, it very soon crumbles and fades away, with a nonsensical and very abrupt ending that left us shaking our heads and wondering what on earth the point was. Coming from a small dev team of just six people, there's still things to admire here; Industria nails the vibe it's going for, there's some terrific music and it looks superb in places, there's no doubt a lot of effort has gone into this certain aspects of this project. However, none of this is enough to smooth over the fact that this is a tediously dull, monotonous, and derivative game that offers up absolutely nothing of any real worth in terms of story or mechanics.

Industria is not exactly a memorable first person shooter, being limited in terms of gameplay also due to some very questionable game design choices. The Bleakmill shooter is instead appreciable for a fascinating dystopian atmosphere, thanks to which it manages to reach a full sufficiency.

Industria is rough around the edges, but its solid world, world-building, and storytelling are still worth experiencing.

While Industria’s atmosphere certainly nailed what it was going for, the monotonous gameplay and rushed story left me dissatisfied. Still, I loved the ambiance and backdrop, and I wouldn’t mind if Bleakmill took another crack at it – the rest of this world just needs a few more cogs added to its machine.

Industria is a shooter that focuses on its narrative component and that offers the best in situations of pure survival, claustrophobic and perpetually outnumbered.

Industria is a narrative "shooter" with a good setting and an interesting story, but its virtues are spoiled because of an irregular technical section, situations that are repeated and short duration.

With a patch or two, Industria could be a game well worth investing in now that it’s available on consoles as well as PC. But at the moment, some frustrating issues mean only the most patient players might see it through, even through it’s not particularly long. Exploring a bleak parallel world is intriguing for sure, but when the controls feel like they’re fighting against you and the save system is overly punishing, much of your drive to proceed is lost.

While not without its flaws, Industria offers a nice bite-sized experience with enough lore to keep you wanting to discover more.

The shooting mechanics might not be as refined or satisfying as other FPS games on the market, but they get the job done. If you don’t mind the short length and minor technical issues, INDUSTRIA is a fairly enjoyable experience that you can complete in a single session.

INDUSTRIA is not a bad game, it is even rather not bad for a first try, especially with only two people behind.

Industria could be a very interesting game, but it lacks depth, length, fun gunplay and a proper ending.

Short, solid and enjoyable, Industria’s price tag is the only real point of contention, but regardless of whatever price is paid, there’s a good game to be had.

INDUSTRIA makes a strong start and raises a range of questions that follow its strange events but fail to take advantage of these elements and end puzzlingly without answering most of those questions.

Considering the 4-hour gameplay time and price tag, the cookie can be called a game. You can still expect some more discounts.

Industria doesn’t outstay its welcome, but it could have done with more narrative meat on its bones, especially for the ending. It sets up a fascinating world I was interested to learn about, and left me eager for more. The shooting is nicely satisfying and the robot design is appropriately unnerving, meaning the dark hallways of the buildings of Hakavik always felt atmospheric and spooky. It needs some more patches to make the performance adequate, but I will be very interested to see what Bleakmill does next. I hope we’ll return to the world of Industria in the future.
