Red Barrels, an independent game development studio based in Montreal, today announced that its first title – PC survival-horror experience, Outlast – will be playable for the first time as part of the PAX East Indie MEGABOOTH in Boston, March 22-24. Attendees will be given a chance to walk the corridors of Mount Massive Asylum in the shoes of investigative reporter Miles Upshur as he tries to escape the evils that roam the complex’s halls.
The game is described as:
In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, has been operating in strict secrecy… until now.
Acting on a tip from an inside source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line being science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.
