New Horror Game Outlast Targets 2013 Launch

horror indie

If you've been feeling like there's not enough horror coming out lately from respected members of the industry, then perhaps this news will be of interest. Developer Red Barrels, which consists of industry veterans from Price of Persia, Splinter Cell, and Uncharted, has just announced their first title and it's looking spooky. Titled Outlast, the game is currently set to arrive for PCs and wants to be a different sort of horror game.

How will Outlast differentiate itself from other horror titles currently out? Philippe Morin, Co-founder of Red Barrels, offered an interesting comment on this:

“There are already a lot of great games out there about terrifying monsters that eat brains; we want Outlast’s to be scary because you’ll know the enemies you face still have them.”

So, instead of mindless beasts, we're going to have to contend with smarter enemies. The indie game scene seems to have been following this trend for a while now, but it seems that bigger developers are finally testing the waters. The world of the game also happens to take place within a sanitarium, which is sure to amp up the creepy factor. Outlast is pegged for a 2013 release on PC as a digital download.

Here's the teaser trailer which shows what direction the game is heading:

Does it look like developer Red Barrels is crafting a sufficiently scary game? Or is it silly?

It reminds me of the Condemned series, which isn't a bad thing. As long as it isn't another blasting zombies game I certainly wouldn't mind another entry into the horror genre.
I don't particularly like buying too many PC games, but I might have to get this game. It looks creepy and scary..the opposite of modern Resident Evil. Lol
Looks really cool I can't wait to see more about it.
Well, I'm sold.
Not sure yet. More info about the game would be nice but so far....it looks good, at least. :)
