PC game 'Outlast' is the first title out of indie developer Red Barrel Games.
Indie video game developer Red Barrel Games has announced its premier title in the upcoming computer game Outlast.
The game is being described as a true survival-horror experience, the aim of which is to show that the most terrifying monsters of all come not from graveyards, but from the human mind itself.
"There are already a lot of great games out there about terrifying monsters that eat brains; we want Outlast's to be scary because you'll know the enemies you face still have them," said Philippe Morin, co-founder of Red Barrels.
The game takes place in the remote mountains of Colorado at a long-abandoned home for the mentally ill known as Mount Massive Asylum. Recently re-opened by the "research and charity" branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, the compound has been operating in strict secrecy... until now.
Acting on a tip from an inside source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.
Outlast will be coming to PC digital download in 2013.
