The 2017 remake of 1999 classic Outcast is coming along nicely.
Nic Cage has pushed the limits of acting in the past — but with Outcast, his new movie coming out next week, he's redefining acting completely. Just watch the Shatnerian delivery of "I AM the White Ghost!" and the bizarre line-reading of "Their blood will be ON OUR BLADES!" It's just... sublime. Watch the trailer for…
Outcast came out in 1999. It was pretty great. Then, this year, its original creators launched a Kickstarter campaign for a HD remake of the game, which, sadly, failed to meet its goal. And now, it looks like they are settling for the next best thing: releasing the original game, with new features, on Steam. Today.
Outcast is one of the best games ever made for the PC. It is also, sadly, one of the most underrated, meaning that it's never got a sequel. Or a spin-off. Or even a shitty mobile game.
In 1999, a game called Outcast was released. It was a God-damn revolution, one of the most ambitious games ever released, though one that's sadly been almost forgotten in the years since. So it's about time for a comeback!
Today, Outcast was released on retro downloadable games service Good Old Games. It's only $6, so I'm going to recommend it to almost everyone. And not because it's a good game.
Outcast was one of those games that was so amazing most people never even got to play it. It just...shone too damn brightly. So much so that this 2010 remake of a 1999 game may well get more exposure.
