Outlast is a survival horror game developed and published by Red Barrels. It is the first title in the Outlast series.
Standard first person controls, with some minor extra platforming controls. [WASD] to move, mouse to look, [LEFT MOUSE] to interact, [RIGHT MOUSE] to raise/lower your camcorder, [CTRL] to crouch, [SHIFT] to sprint, [Q] and [E] to peek around corners left and right respectively, or to look over your shoulder while sprinting, and [F] to toggle nightvision on your camcorder.
Gameplay consists of exploring environments, platforming sections, collecting lore (documents) and batteries, and escaping enemies.
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 between 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.
