Fresh 3D is asking for your help to bring the classic game Outcast into the modern age of gaming as Outcast Reboot HD. The indie developer has already raised over $110,000 of its $600,000 goal in the first 24 hours of its Kickstarter campaign.

The 1999 action-adventure for PC was one of the first 3D games to feature non-linear story, free-roaming environments, reactive AI, symphonic music and more than 20 hours of gameplay.

Everything will be redone, and Fresh 3D intends to produce a highly polished game that will meet today’s high-quality standards. At right is an early prototype screenshot (1080p @60 fps).

Here are some of the things gamers can expect from Outcast Reboot HD:

  • All objects, textures, environments and characters entirely remade from scratch in hi-definition
  • Targets 1080p @ 60fps, and supports beyond HD
  • Enhanced adventure:
    • Annoying story bugs removed
    • Improved HUD
    • Improved inventory
    • Improved notepad
    • Improved dialog interface
  • New Cutter locomotion, control and animations
  • New camera control
  • Xbox and PS4 controller (and other compatible) support on Windows

Fresh 3D would appreciate your support in order to make Outcast Reboot HD everything it can be.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
