Outcast, the well-loved action-adventure game released in 1999 for the PC, might be receiving a new HD remake, if a new Kickstarter project makes its $600,000 goal.
The team behind Outcast Reboot HD are hoping to fully remaster the game, adding entirely new HD textures, a new HUD and UI, new camera controls and more. Below there's a screenshot from an early HD prototype build.
You can also watch a video from the team, explaining their reasons for wanting to remake the game and a little about the actual process."Outcast has been critically acclaimed to the point it has reach some cult status among many PC gamers," write developers Fresh3D Inc. "However, the software-only nature of the original engine meant the game has been ignored by many at a time when hardware-accelerated 3d polygons was becoming the norm (and they loved flat corridors apparently :P )."Now we have the opportunity to bring this fantastic game to a wider and newer audience and to reward existing fans with brand new visuals and improved gameplay."
The Kickstarter campaign runs until May 7 2014.
