Oh yeah, Outlast! The spooooooky game set in an asylum, where the enemies are Hooman Beeings. I’d almost forgotten it, since we last mentioned it in November, but now the veteran-developed horror has a release date and a price. You want to know what they are?

He then immediately leaves and reports it to the local authorities, and goes home to inexplicably watch another episode of Whodunnit.
