open Outcast should become a free unofficial successor of the Action-Adventure Outcast (by Appeal). Therefore we are creating a total conversion of Crysis Wars.

Story Teaser

Cutter has departed, and everything is far from perfect on Adelpha.Cutter Slade

Without their godlike leader in the form of Kazar, and liberated from the oppression they faced under Fae Rhan, the talans attempt to organise their own society - this doesn't happen without conflict, and with Sidestep 2 launched, the situation can only get worse. On top of that, unseen, another puppetmaster pulls the strings.

Only one man can handle this: the Ulukai himself! Cutter will step into the String Tunnelling Device once again, and discover the truth behind an ancient mystery...

A short summary what happened so far:

  • OpenOutcast started as a total conversion mod for Crysis Wars (CryEngine 2)
  • Crytek released the CryEngine Free SDK, allowing smaller teams to develop entire games using the latest CryEngine technology (CryEngine 3)
  • We decided to continue the development using that engine as it would allow us to release a standalone game rather than staying a mod
  • In order to reflect this change, the project was renamed to Outcast: Legacy of the Yods
  • The plan was to port over the Oasis 1.1 demo, redesign the levels and add more features such as combat and in general prepare the framework in which the whole game could be developed
  • At the end of this process, we would release a standalone demo version and launch an extensive PR and application campaign to mass enough talent to finish the content, as the final regions, more assets, ...

Now we are announcing the closed beta of this demo. More information about the application process can be found HERE.

After its release, there will be a new project page on IndieDB.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Just tried out Oasis 1.1 and I'm majorly impressed! What you've done so far is absolutely amazing, from the visuals to the music, audio & voice acting this is shaping-up to be a really professional game, so a big huge GRATZ to everyone working on the project :)

A few things I did notice though: It would be nice if quest items didn't just disappear when you get close to them like a Mario mushroom - would it be possible to have a couple of generic 'picking up stuff' animations, and have the player actually initiate the process? I actually completed the quest to find the plant by accident because I'd happened to walk near it while exploring, it would be better if you actually had to rely on your eyes to find the thing, then use the action button to pick it up. Quite a small thing but I think it makes a big difference in how engaging a game feels.

Also, I know you've mentioned that lip-sync will be improved, but hopefully you'll also do some work on other facial stuff like blinking and movements of the head - at present Cutter Slade looks a bit like an action man with his fixed expression.

And it would also be great if there were more physics items around, it seemes a little bit jarring to be able to move the hanging fish on Loras' island when everything else in his house seemed to be glued in place. I understand there might be technical concerns here though, so it's not a major issue.

But anyways, keep doing what you're doing, I'll be watching intently ;)

The item system will get some overhaul in upcoming releases. Actually there will be some smart HUD system that points you to the location of interesting objects as in the original Outcast... e.g.

There will be a fully evolved gesture and mimic system later. The current dialogues display the first developement stage of the dialogue system and are defenitely WIP.
