    Routine Feat is a trial of monotonous tasks where you try to live through each day without meaning. Wake up, eat breakfast, go to work, go to bed and do it all over again... Is there a way out? What is the meaning of it all?

    Note: I recommend "Medium" or "Low" for most computers as Routine Feat isn't completely optimized and there are no in-game options

    Click Play

    Conclusion:
    Routine Feat ran fairly well in the morning and at work, but there are times when the sun was going down that resulted in erratic frame rates, which made it difficult to interact with objects. I recommend playing with the settings on low. Also try playing with "staging" versions of Wine as well.

    Other than that, it was quite an original and interesting game. I loved being able to pick up any object and even eat food or interact with the post. I kinda wish there were other characters in the game...
