You have crash-landed on Notrium. Your food supplies are running low, and a pack of predatory aliens have your scent. You're out of bullets for your pistol, your only weapon a handful of rocks. A freezing night is setting in, and you are desperately looking for firewood. Can you survive?
Scavenge enough food and supplies to survive through the cold, dark nights.
Explore the alien ruins and bases to find parts for weapons and equipment.
Shoot, sneak, and think quickly. Lure the aliens to fight the marines.
Choose from four playable characters, each with different strategies and abilities.
Notrium has six possible endings, but can you reach any of them?
Notrium was originally released in 2003 when it was regarded as one of the finest examples of the budding indie game movement. It had a fan following of millions, with dozens of mods, and multiple clone games. Notrium was one of the first survival games ever made, and possibly even the first ever to be called a survival game.
Notrium was originally released in 2003 as an early example of the survival genre and has now come back with additional features such as achievements and cloud saves on Steam. Your ship has crashed on a hostile planet and you need to find supplies, food, shelter, and ways to defend yourself, with the goal being to get off of the planet. You need to eat to keep up your health and find the right supplies and shelter to survive in hot or cold temperatures. The game has a simple art style, even for back in 2003 but it works for the game. If you used to play this game or are interested in a good survival game that helped to get people into the genre then this is a good game for you to try, especially for such a low price.
Notrium is a classic. It is just an amazing game because the theme is great, the choices and discovery is simply a joy, and the playable characters are so diverse that it feels like the game is brand new every time you try a new character. However, the game does feature the same maps but it has a lot of secrets to discover, different endings, and a lot of equipment or item diversity that allows for an endless amount of combinations between items. Notrium can be hard depending on your play style and which character you picked. For an example, playing as a human bars you from going out into the night because you can die much faster than the other classes! The game does become easier with each run as you discover how to use things, what expected from each map, and your character?s weaknesses and strengths. This is one of the best survival games for its age but it may be missing many features that modern survival games have. For people who played the game like I did when it came out in the past, it?ll still be enjoyable because of the nostalgia.
