Indie developer Fresh3D’s upcoming Outcast HD reboot has officially been Greenlit on Steam. The title will now go on sale on Valve’s digital store come full launch. That said, the developer is still running a Kickstarter campaign to raise $600,000 USD. With 6 days to go the campaign sits at just under half way with $242,657 in funding. The title also has a $1 million stretch goal for virtual reality (VR) support.
“Well, thanks to you, we have been Greenlit in just 4 days!” a Greenlight update from the developers reads. “Of course this is not the final achievement as we still need to properly finance the project but it’s a first big step in the process of bringing back the franchise to you and it could not have been made without you.”
“Please keep spreading the word about the project, it will help anyway, wathever option is taken if this Kickstarter fails.
Outcast HD is a reboot of the 1999 PC original. The team is hoping to reimagine the action-adventure experience with fresh, sharper textures, improved character models and more. The developer also aims to expand upon the first title with a $1,700,000 stretch goal for a brand new world to explore, stating “Let’s pave the way towards Outcast II, together.”
VRFocus will continue to follow the Outcast HD project’s development and report back with all the latest.
