The 57th Best News Of All Time: Outcast To Return

I should play the original again, my PC might be able to run it by now

This will inevitably end up on Kickstarter, and in the light of Double Fine’s budgeting mayhem that phrase is a far less reassuring one today than it would have been yesterday. But let’s cling tight to hope for now, for the good news is that the creators of ahead-of-its-time 1999 voxel adventure Outcast have rescued the rights from The Artist Formerly Known As Infogrames and announced plans to bring the remarkably ambitious old open world sci-fi dear back to life. Hurrah! Hurrah! Thrice hurrah! Please be 100% sure of your required budget before asking people to fund it! Hurrah!
There’s very little to go on, but devs Appeal, aka Yann Robert, Franck Sauer and Yves Grolet briefly say they have “started the revival of the franchise and will soon announce further developments”.
