Enh, I sorta kinda remember this one. Cult classic? That's stretching it a lot methinks.
Nah, it's a cult classic to me. Perhaps more so in Europe? I know it was decently popular here in Germany, and it's not that hard to see why: The combat was super clunky, but the adventuring was strong (adventures having never stopped being a strong genre here), as was the music, and it's not entirely unlike some German-made games such as the Gothic series.
Playing Outcast was a magical experience for me. In my two decades of playing video games, it definitely stands out as significant. I've got a number of friends who I feel would readily agree.
Now, on the topic of the HD remake, I'm definitely going to give them my money. It's not even a question. On the other hand, it's a bit sad these guys weren't successful enough they have to retread 16 years later, and I doubt this will make enough money to fund a real sequel.
