About this game

a PC gamer during the format’s first golden age. Originally released in 1999, it was typical for a PC game of that era: ferociously ambitious, technologically advanced, and more than a little flawed. It was never a big hit even at the time, but it has a loyal enough group of fans to have enabled a re-release in 2010. This though is a complete remake, and for better and worse it shares exactly the same qualities as the original.

Outcast’s relative obscurity is no doubt due to Belgian developer Appeal and original French publisher Infogrames. We highlight their nationality not just as an explanation of why the game was largely ignored outside of Europe, but to highlight the influence the game takes from classic Franco-Belgian sci-fi – the sort of comic books that inspired the movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and many 8-bit and 16-bit video games from the region.

In today’s more homogenised video game world such influences are rare, even if Outcast’s plot is less peculiar than it first appears. You’re cast as an ex-U.S. Navy SEAL who is tasked with escorting three scientists to a parallel dimension, in order to recover a probe that is in danger of creating a black hole that could destroy the Earth. And then before you can say ‘TV Tropes’ he’s proclaimed the chosen one by the natives.

I was selling selling it for $3 worth of points, but you can now get it cheaper
