Outlast, A First Person Horror Game Looks Like It Will Come To Linux

Outlast a particularly scary game looks like it has plans for a Linux version, and that's awesome. Prepare to hide behind your pillows.

The game itself revolves around you visiting a psychiatric hospital that's not only a little run down, but full of mental people. Things get weird pretty quickly and a lot of the areas that make you jump aren't expected.

I've seen it been played by two people who were so scared they had to stop playing, but to their defence this was in the dark after a beer or two. It's quite a jump experience though! I've seen plenty of twitch streamers attempt to play it too, and they were all cacking themselves. I cannot wait to join them in soiling my pants.

Thanks to SteamDB as usual:

Looks like Mac will come too!

Check out Outlast on Steam, but be sure to wait for the Linux version before you buy it!

This was on my wishlist, but gave up because more and more Linux ports are important to me.
I am rather pleased with this turn of events.

Quoting: srlsboyWhat ever happen to 'Asylum'? It was being worked on.

Still is. Last Kickstarter update was a month ago: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/agustincordes/asylum-kickstart-the-horror/posts/945579

And in an earlier update, they said that the alpha is "well under way" and will go out "to VIP backers early in September". A more advanced preview that'll go to press outlets will be made available to all backers later this year. A final release date will probably be announced by then; they're "worst case scenario is mid-2015".

I'm waiting for all of these titles to actually land. I see Linux being added in the Steam database but I want to buy and PLAY them!
