Outlast tells the story of a reporter who gets a tip from an anonymous informant that something fishy is going on at a mountain asylum.
The reporter goes there to investigate, but when he arrives he realizes that all hell has broken loose already.
“He figures it’s probably a good idea to just leave, but it’s already too late and he’s trapped inside,” Philippe Morin (Game & Level Design of Red Barrel) said.
“So he’s got to find a way out and at the same time investigate and see what’s behind those experiments, who’s behind those experiments, what’s been going on with the patients.”
The backstory is drawn from the real MKUltra experiments conducted by the CIA in the 50s, 60s and 70s in the U.S. and Canada.
Those experiments, which are still shrouded in secrecy and that some think, to this day, dealt with drug use, torture and some form of mind control.
“He’s trying to get out, that’s always the main goal,” Morin said.
“We leave it up to the players to decide how much investigation they want to do. They can pick up papers and it will be added to the journal as backstory.”
Looks like the old Buffalo Psych Center.

It’s a first person game, but, without the ability to combat!
A stealth horror where you’d have to do a lot of creeping around.
I’ve given away beta keys, but, not a paid full game before, so, this is the first!!!
