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

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!
