Horror movie fans love watching people get killed,tortured and scared in movies, but what happens when YOU become part of it? Outlast is definitely a game that makes you part of the horror. Outlast is developed and published by Red Barrels. This game came out last year but I just got in on the fun.

My friends and I recently locked ourselves in her basement and turned off all the lights and played this game. Let me tell you, this game is terrifying. You are stuck in an asylum with creepy, murderous zombie things trying to kill you. Oh, so you think this is another zombie game? Not at all.  Here’s the plot:

“Miles Upshur, a freelance investigative journalist, receives an anonymous tip from a source identified only as a whistleblower. The lead tells of inhumane experiments committed at Mount Massive Asylum, a remote psychiatric hospital situated deep in the mountains of Lake County, Colorado and owned by the Murkoff Corporation, known for its corrupt dealings. Entering the asylum, Upshur is horrified to discover the mutilated corpses of the staff, including a dying SWAT officer who warns him to get out while he still can. As he investigates further, Upshur finds the asylum’s patients, known as “Variants”, freely roaming the grounds and hostile towards him, particularly a hulking sadist named Chris Walker. Approached by Martin Archimbaud, a cult leader who considers himself a priest, Upshur is told he was sent by “God” to be his witness to the night’s events. It soon becomes clear that Archimbaud has no intention of letting Miles escape, and that he worships a seemingly supernatural entity known only as The Walrider, which he claims caused the breakout.”  

Let me tell you, this game makes me second guess being a journalist.
