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.
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 end of the already-endangered horror genre.
