Even before watching this trailer for Outlast, I was happy on the basis that more independent designers are trying their hand at survival horror. This is currently in development at Montreal-based Red Barrels, a studio made up of people who worked on the Prince of Persia, Assassin's Creed, and Splinter Cell franchises.

The video itself doesn't unveil too much yet, though the prospect of wielding a camera instead of a gun has me optimistic. Outlast takes place inside of Mount Massive Asylum, which, yeah -- if this game is legitimately scary, that's going to be embarrassing for us. Another trailer is planned for Halloween, while the full game is due out digitally on PC in 2013.

If you're looking for new stuff to play and aren't afraid of digging a little deeper to find less mainstream titles, now is a particularly good time to own a PC, especially for this genre. Let's hope Outlast can join the ranks of recent horror hits.

Don't know hardly anything about the game and I'm already excited for it. Hopefully it'll remain as scary and it hopefully will, Indies seem to always produce the better horror games. Frictional are the reigning champions, can they be beaten? RedBarrel seems to have some real talent there going off what they've worked on before.

I feel now is just such a good time to be a PC gamer. :P
