Outcast - Outcast (video game) - Netflix
Outcast is an action-adventure video game developed by Belgian developer Appeal and released by Infogrames for Windows in 1999. The game was critically acclaimed, for instance it was named the “Adventure Game of the Year” by GameSpot in 1999. In 2001 an Appeal-developed sequel, called Outcast II: The Lost Paradise, was never finished due to bankruptcy. In 2010 the game was re-released via digital distribution on GOG. In 2014 Outcast was remastered as Outcast 1.1, after the original developers reacquired the franchise IP. In 2017, a remake titled Outcast: Second Contact was released for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Outcast - Revival - Netflix
On July 3, 2013, it was reported that Yann Robert, Franck Sauer and Yves Grolet of Belgian developer Appeal had acquired the IP from Atari, SA with the intention to revive the franchise.
On April 7, 2014, a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign was launched by members of the original development team with the goal of $600,000 for an HD remake of Outcast. The campaign failed to reach its funding goal with only 45% of the required amount achieved and therefore no money transferred. On December 18, 2014, Outcast was remastered as Outcast 1.1 on Steam and later on GOG.com and Zoom Platform. Outcast 1.1 was built and recompiled from the original source code with improved stability, higher resolution support (max. 1920x1080 due to fixed-point z-buffer), and multi-threaded rendering support. Also, there is ongoing work on patching out remaining bugs and glitches by the developers. An official remake, titled Outcast: Second Contact, was set to be released in March 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It was developed by Appeal, while Bigben Interactive served as the game's publisher. In February 2017 it was announced that Outcast: Second Contact would be delayed to Fall 2017 to further polish the game. The game was finally released on November 7, 2017.
