“We got a huge amount of fantastic, positive feedback when we unveiled Outlast a few months back, so we knew we wanted to provide gamers with a chance to play it as soon as possible,” said Red Barrels co-founder David Chateauneuf. “I can’t wait to watch people take their first steps in Mount Massive.”

“There is no doubt in our minds that the MEGABOOTH is the way for us to be a part of PAX East,” said Philippe Morin, the other co-founder of Red Barrels. “Indie developers, cool games, passionate people, friendly atmosphere... what’s not to like? We hope to see you all there!”

About Outlast

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.
