has more on this Windows and OS X sim:
This game has been a
dream project and I never thought it would finally be out there in the world.
Everything is a very simple idea that took 3 years and an enormous amount of
work to make happen. Our core team is just 2 people, and we and we really hope
you enjoy your experience with it.
Everything is a very different kind of game, and people will interpret it
differently, but the best thing is to go in without any expectations. One thing
to keep in mind is that there's no wrong way to play it - it's all designed so
you can't make a mistake.
We've had very few issues so far, but managed to fix a few small things today
and will continue with any fixes needed next week. Thank you to everyone on the
Discussion page for bringing these things up and for helping each other out. In
general - most issues in the game are solved by saving & reloading, or going
Settings -> Restart area. We are, of course, committed to making sure you have
the best experience possible and don't have to do this.
Finally - thank you if you already bought
Mountain - you basically funded this project, and thank you for playing,
posting, discussing and telling your friends about this game.

Steam Community announcement
reveals plans for Outbreak: The New
, a follow-up to the survival horror of the first
. There are
details on the Outbreak website
with a teaser trailer
featuring pre-alpha gameplay, showing a transition to a 3D environment from the
previous top-down perspective. Developer Dead Drop Studios also offers
playthrough of a demo scenario. The New Nightmare is currently in the
process, and they expect it to enter early access this year. Here
are more details:

Outbreak's transition to 3D opens up the opportunity
for a more cinematic, visceral experience. You'll be directly in the thick of
the action as you navigate through the remains of the destroyed city. Facing a
limited inventory, puzzles, diabolical foes and more, it will be a true test of
survival. To make matters worse, you only have a SINGLE LIFE. You'll need to
scavenge the environment for weapons, ammunition and other supplies if you have
any hope to survive. Knives, handguns, shotguns, revolvers and more are the key
to making it out of the nightmare alive. Supporting your team by trading items
and watching each other's backs will also be essential.
As with the original Outbreak, the multiplayer modes will run on a cloud-based
multiplayer backend. It will not use a P2P connection and you should have
virtually no firewall or NAT issues when connecting to friends. With a region
selector, you'll have access to an excellent ping almost anywhere in the world.
Outbreak: The New Nightmare is expected to support 3-player online multiplayer
co-op, as well as single-player (and offline) modes.
Happy Earth Day! I'm personally fond of the Earth, as I spend much of my time
here. Here's hoping we can find better ways to balance our civilization with
nature, though that may require focusing on the environment for a second day
every year. I know, I'm one of those radicals.
