Get Outcast 1.1 for Free

Outcast 1.1 is currently available for free from GOG.com. There is no indication if this is a permanent price reduction or a temporary promotion, so it's best to act swiftly if you want in. Outcast 1.1 is a version of the action/adventure that was recompiled in 2014 from the original 1999 source code to run on modern computers. Word is: "The main improvements compared to the original version are: multithreaded voxel renderer for higher performances, software bilinear filtering on polygonal meshes, part of the HUD redesigned to match higher resolutions, new high-resolution sky paintings, new launcher, native support of xbox gamepad, user-friendly controller configuration, a lot of bugs fixed and improved stability." Here's more:
As part of a covert experiment, the US military deployed a probe designed to prove the existence of a parallel universe hidden from our own. Although the probe successfully entered the alternate universe and reached a planet called Adelpha, its first crucial data transmission is mysteriously cut short.

The probe's unexpected demise triggers a disastrous chain of events resulting in the creation of a black hole, one that threatens to destroy the Earth. Unless the missing probe can somehow be found and repaired, planet Earth itself is doomed.

  • Vast and diverse continents to explore, inhabited by thousands of living creatures
  • An excellent mix of action and adventure, well-designed combat and complete freedom of movement
  • One of the best games of 1999 with a memorable and believable storyline set in the not-so-distant future

That's awesome they did that but if you guys really want to experience this and get ready for part 2, pick up Outcast Second Contact. It is a gorgeous remaster but retains almost everything of the original including sound effects and bugs, lol. I actually was able to beat it, having never beat the original from like 1998. Still own the original jewel disc. Has a place in my heart, lol. Can't wait to see what they do with part 2.

I didn't enjoy Second Contact. I thought the graphics looked worse, the animation looked stunted... it lacked the charm and awe of the original.
