Outcast Reboot HD Open-world Action-adventure Game, A Reboot Of A True Classic

Posted by , | Views: 11,921

If you haven't heard of Outcast before then you are either young or living under a rock, possibly both! Outcast was a revolutionary open-world action-adventure game back in the day. Outcast Reboot HD is promising Linux support at a hefty stretch goal.

The game is now on Kickstarter looking to get at least $600,000 with a goal of $750,000 for Linux/Mac support + extras. It may sound like a lot, but with 27 days to go it is already reaching nearly $150K! It's also nice to see Linux & Mac lumped together rather than Linux being bumped to even higher goals.

Check out the Outcast Reboot HD kickstarter here.

Sadly they are another developer using things like "beta access" as higher rewards, that is starting to bug me more and more, since you are supporting them directly by pledging, don't you think everyone should get beta access as without each pledge they wouldn't make it.

I contacted the developers 3 days ago to ask when a Linux version would be expected, and no answer as of yet sadly.

About Outcast

Outcast is an action-adventure game developed in 1999 for the PC. It was one of the first 3d games to offer non-linear gameplay, free-roaming environments, combats against clever reactive AI, excellent voice acting, symphonic music, and 20+ hours of highly engrossing adventure.

It's one of my favorite games, i remember that i had a k6-2 when the first time i played it. Long time ago. An Hd version with the same spirit of the original may be a great game, support for linux is super cool

Agreed, I noticed this as well. Step in the right direction

One of the best RPGs ever, definitely waiting for the HD reboot.

Hopefully the linux port isn't delayed due to "Technical Difficulties"..like we have seen before.

I don't think so, if they reach 750.000. 146.000 at the moment and 26 days left.

They will need to hit the Linux stretchgoal before I consider giving them a dime.

Suggestion: They should open up the legacy Outcast source code of the engine as another stretch goal.

It's a very good new. I didn't play this game before (I remember when it was released, I was playing Soul Reaver and Shadowman), but I know that this game is a classic.

Is a good oportunity to play it

As I recall, Outcast was (beyond its gameplay)notable for using OpenGL rather than DirectX. This should make porting a bit easier, it is to be hoped.
