In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, has been operating in strict secrecy… until now. 
Acting on a tip from an inside source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.

Released on Steam. 

This was created by a series of professional developers from various triple A studio's, who where sick of playing triple A horror games that "play it safe", that hold the players hand and allow players to kill monsters by the bucketload like some kind action game. Outlast will feature evasion based, horror gameplay. You can't fight off the horrors that lie within the Aslyum. You must run, hide... or die.

AWESOME HORROR GAME !!! This game shows players the true meaning of horror and its atmosphere is very very fantastic during doing normal objectives (like finding keys, powering up generators and stuff)I would like to see from the developers to make more dlc stories because it would be awesome than only a story-line and one dlc,but still its attractive of overplaying it over and over again.

Highest Rated (3 agree) 9/10

I chose 9 out of 10 because of 5 things I focus on when reviewing horror games, it's Quality, Scares, Lag, Story and Length! (Atmosphere and stuff like that is included in the Quality!) Quality: The Quality was amazing, I absolutely think the graphics looked incredible! But the graphics isn't what's most important for a horror game, it needs a good story and quite a few not cheap scares :D Other than that, the voice-acting was very well made, graphics was amazing, I loved the idea with night-vision…

Painfully bad, cheap Hollywood horror, equivalent to what you find on SyFy channel late at night. Devoid of creativity and originality, Outlast is worse than many Amnesia custom stories, which are often made by teenagers. It's full of scripted, predictable jump scares and enemy encounters, topped off by uninspiring level design and cringe-worthy writing and cliches. But hey, it's still better than Dead Space. Nonetheless, save your pennies. If games like this become popular, then it will be the…
