“We created a realistic setting for an immersive—and dreadful—experience capable of petrifying even the most seasoned of horror fans,” said Enigmatic Machines lead designer Pavel Necas in a press release. “Expedition Zero combines elements of exploration, sci-fi, survival, and even sandbox, encouraging outside of the box thinking to help our sole survivor break out of the deadly nightmare he has been stuck in for years.”
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Expedition Zero is a survival horror set in the anomaly zone in the heart of Siberia. Face the dreadful forest monster and find a way to defeat it.
Explore the corrupted forest and abandoned research facilities to uncover the truth about the top-secret soviet expedition. Limited resources can be used to enhance your abilities and chances of survival in extreme conditions. Could you escape the zone or reveal the secrets it keeps?
- Fight or Hide – You are not alone in the forest. Face the horrifying monster in a deadly duel. How would you deal with other corrupted creatures? Run away, fight back or become prey.
- Survive – Deadly monsters are not your only enemy. Deal with lack of resources, extreme temperatures and snowstorms.
- Get Strong – Loot and craft useful devices and modules for your mecha-suit. Establish new safe points to have uneasy rest. It is the only help you’ll get on the expedition.
- Explore The Unknown – The former research camp is now abandoned and surrounded by a 50m high wall. Uncover the dark truth about the soviet research expedition and top-secret military experiment.
