headerOutlast  was released September 4, 2013 by Red Barrels. The game was developed by Red Barrels. Outlast is a horror survival game.

Hell is an experiment you can’t survive in Outlast, a first-person survival horror game developed by veterans of some of the biggest game franchises in history. As investigative journalist Miles Upshur, explore Mount Massive Asylum and try to survive long enough to discover its terrible secret… if you dare.

The game opens with a waning that Outlast contains intense violence, gore, graphic sexual content, and strong language. Please enjoy.

As you drive up the eerily quiet asylum you find the front door locked so walking around the side you find another locked door before find a ladder along with some scaffolding to finally make your way inside. You may squeeze though narrow areas or even hide in a locker.

Miles carries with him only a notebook and a camcorder, with which he plans to document the horrors within the asylum. It has a night vision option for use in the asylum’s many unlit sections. Use of the IR mode consumes batteries, which must be scavenged and replaced as the storyline progresses.

Plot details unfold through notes taken by the protagonist as footage is recorded through his camera, as well as manila folders scavenged from the environment. The notes help develop the story which in Outlast is the real strength.

This game bring horror to gaming that very few have ever been able to achieve. Trying to get out of maze in 3D, the asylum definitely makes Outlast a game that will take many hours to figure out.

Leaving a door open can give a player a chance to run back and slam the door shut, which slows the progress of a monster.

Ladders and vents are ways to move up or down. Stacking things can also help getting up into another area. Batteries can be found in scary places or other darker places.
