Releasing Outcast 1.1
The Kickstarter campaign is ending today!
Release date: Q4 2015
Fresh3D is bringing you a reboot of HD of 'Outcast', an action-adventure game developed in 1999 for the PC.

Outcast 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,
  • 20+ hours of highly engrossing adventure.
Outcast has been critically acclaimed to the point it has reach some cult status among many PC gamers. However, the software-only nature of the original engine (using voxels) meant the game has been ignored by many at a time when hardware-accelerated 3d polygons was becoming the norm.

Today, we have the opportunity to bring this fantastic game to a wider and newer audience and to reward existing fans with brand new HD visuals and improved gameplay.


In 2007, the U.S. government successfully sends a probe to an alien world in a parallel universe. As the probe is transmitting video images of the world, an alien life form discovers the probe and damages it, causing a disruptive backlash of energy to form a black hole threatening Earth. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Cutter Slade is given the job of escorting three scientists (William Kauffmann, Anthony Xue and Marion Wolfe) on a mission to this alien world to recover the probe and stop the threat. Arriving in this alien world, Cutter is separated from the other scientists and is hailed by the natives as their messiah, the Ulukai.

At release time, the game was critically acclaimed and received numbers of awards, among them:
  • PC Gamers: Editor choice (rated 90%)
  • Gamespot: Adventure Game of the Year 1999
  • Game Critics Awards 1999: Outstanding Achievement in Sound
  • Computer Gaming World, Premier Awards 2000: Adventure Game of the Year
  • 19/20
  • 9/10
  • DVD Summit III: Best European DVD
  • DVD Champion 2000: Best Game (delivered on a DVD)
  • Home PC: Adventure Game of the Year Editor’s choice
  • Generation 4: nominated for Gen d’Or 1999
  • Interactive Achievement Awards 2000 (now DICE Awards): nominated for "Computer Adventure/Role Playing Game of the Year" and "Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition"

You should make another kickstarter when you have some cool gameplay to show! Outcast is still the best game I have ever played. Just be sure to show the dialogue and exploration parts (I noticed the trailer for Outcast v1.1 was a bit to focused on just combat, making it look more like just an action game then it truly is)

Glad to hear that Fresh3D :-) I missed the Kickstarter but voted on Steam because the videos look sweet of what your doing with the game.

No worry, me alive, we never give up this project :) However we will probably reconsider a lot of things regarding the technology, the platforms and the way of financing it etc...that's all I can say for the moment : ). Meanwhile, we had to focus on releasing Outcast 1.1 which give us the opportunity to listen to the community and broaden the audience a bit.

Good games never die. They reborn in a new better look. Outcast Reboot HD is a game like that.
