Subterrain coming to XboxOne and PS4

Hi everyone.

I realize this is Steam and some of you are probably not interested in this news, but I have the best community here for Subterrain so I would like to share the news.

Subterrain is coming to XboxOne and PS4 on 27th Jan 2017 next year.

It has been a real tough job to port the game as I had to do it all alone. And I wanted to try and make it world wide release on two major platforms at the same time so it was a lot harder than I have expected it. The process has actually helped to fix many minor glitches with the game, especially with the controllers.

I have been porting the game at the same time trying to come up with interesting stuff for the next title. I hope I can share something more before the end of the year but we will just have to see.

I hope some of you would be interested or at least tell your friends about it.

Thanks always!

“Pixellore sets the scene well, and immediately hooked me with its foreboding and mysterious opening.”
Preview – Indie Game Magazine

“Even though Subterrain is still early access, the developers have done an amazing job. Unlike many Indie games this one already feels finished. There is always room for improvement, but the game has what it takes to become one of the better Indie survival horror games that are out there. If you’re a horror survival fan, this game needs to have a spot in your collection.”

By 2050, humanity has finally colonized Mars thanks to the efforts of one man, Jeff Murray. To avoid Mars’ high radiation levels and inhospitable temperature changes, he built a city underground. This city was named Mars MPO. Free of the constraints that often plagued businesses and researchers on Earth, scientists and entrepreneurs flocked to MPO.

Recently, Dr. Albert West has migrated to MPO at the personal invitation of Mr. Murray. West has been working on a cure for Alzheimer's disease in a race to save his wife, Jennifer, from dementia. His efforts are cut short; a lab accident leads to an accusation of murder and a prompt prison sentence.

We join Dr. West a little over a year into his prison sentence. It’s been a week since the guards mysteriously vanished. Dr. West is about to find out why.
