In Subterrain, you fill the shoes of Dr. West, the apparent lone survivor of MPO, an underground city on Mars. Do what you must to survive: battle enemies, fight hunger and thirst, mend your wounds, and gather resources in a constant struggle to survive the catastrophe that’s beset Mars!

You may end up being your own worst enemy if you’re careless!

Every decision you make is critical as the world does not wait for you.

No one said survival would be easy, but since it's still a game, it should ultimately be more fun than it is.

A top-down survival horror that feels as fresh as it does familiar. Every failure is lined with a lesson made of silver, and the sense of impending doom is kept tantalisingly close to hand at all times. Subterrain is a fine example of using tired genre tropes effectively.

Subterrain is an ambitious title that just missed the mark for me, but missed it in a big way.
