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.
Waylon Park is a software engineer working at Mount Massive for the Murkoff Corporation. After several encounters working directly with the Morphogenic Engine and witnessing the torture that Eddie Gluskin endured, he decides to send an email to Miles Upshur reporting on the corruption of Mount Massive. Shortly after sending it, he is caught by his employer, Jeremy Blaire.
As punishment, Blaire has Park committed and forced to endure the tests of the Morphogenic Engine. However, after the Walrider breaks free and begins causing chaos at Mount Massive, Park manages to escape his restraints, taking a camcorder with him. He roams the facility as surviving guards and personnel try to escape from the newly freed prisoners, trying to find a radio that he can use to contact the authorities.
During this time, he consistently eludes a bearded, cannibalistic prisoner named Frank Manera, who wields a mechanical circular saw blade and tries to kill him in many ways, including trapping him in a furnace. Just as Park manages to find a radio, Blaire appears and destroys it, insisting that no one can reveal the secret of Mount Massive. He leaves Park to die at the hands of Chris Walker, only for Park to escape.
This is the first game I played on the PlayStation 4 and believe me when I say that this game scared me completely. If you like and play a scary game in a house that is impossible to get out of, then this is the game for you. This is a really great game, it took me very long time to finish the game, mostly because I hid myself all the time...

I found the story pieced together and it never really gave you any real way to fight the threat, so instead your character was thrust into the danger. Because logically your character would not try and stop the evil spirit if they have no idea how to stop it. I found this rather odd decision. 95% of players would obviously choose to run away when they get the chance. I don't see why our character can't... for dramatic purposes it does make for a sadder, more violent ending though. + Atmosphere is…

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…
