Well talk about one hell of a gog. This is great news, I really enjoyed outcast on release. 1999, wow how the times have changed.

I absolutely loved this game. Amazing music and graphics (VOXELS!) which brought my computer to a screaming halt. I would absolutely love another game in this series, even if it was a remake.

Never played it, but I sure do remember seeing that cheesy cover art in stores!

Ahh the voxel game. Awesome graphics at the time. This should be interesting.

Yes yes and yes. It was an amazing world they made, graphics ridiculous. I'm curious what the game would look like with today's computers if it could be hacked to higher resolutions. The engine could pump out endless voxels as I remember.. It would totally be worth playing!
