"The owl men are here, and they're so very hungry."

Gary Mason, former head of security, Outpost:Haven.

A distress call wakes you and your crew mate from C-Sleep. A suspected rad leak at the nearby Outpost space station needs investigating. Don't worry, it should just be a quick jump in, jump out job...

Enjoy.

V1.1
- Level 3 made easier. Also forcefield is triggered during vulnerable sections of the level.
- El presidente medal fixed.
- Challenges fixed, no more broken numbers.
- Various tweaks and fixes.

V1.2
- Bug with weapons unavailable in Swarm mode fixed.
- Turrets accuracy fixed.
- Console intro can be skipped by clicking.
- Level 3 tweaked so its less likely to break ( Yet again )
- Shout out to the NG boys who helped with bugs in the credits.
- Various tweaks and fixes.

V1.3
- Challenges should be less buggy.
- Reduced the chance of being stuck in a spawn hole.
- Invisible objects fixed.
- I'm sure someone said faster running would be nice ? Done.

V1.4
- A bit of retconning ready for Outpost 2, plus a little teaser.
- Minor tweaks and fixes
- Full screen mode if you've got Flash 11.3 or greater installed.

Just a note on the quality settings, its already running in low quality, hence the lack of in-game option for it.

Nice for a flash-game

Very nice kind-of-dead-space-&-co flash game, the only 'real' thing I didn't like was the radar, this game could be a lot more scary if it doesn't have the radar. Well done anyway !

Cheers :)
We did limit the motion tracker to make it more like a sonar type thing, as I think if you could always see where the baddies were on it it would lose a lot of the tension.
( There is actually a hidden level 3 still in the code, we removed it due to pacing, and in that we killed the motion tracker and used a lot of shadow and "Red eyes". All the code is still sitting in there for it, working fine, just no art for the level ).

Squize responds:

So sorry, you've not played the game yet but have written a review and given it a 5 ?
Are your family being held at gun point until you review 20 games or something ? Ah, I know you can't tell me and put them at risk, just blink twice if it's the case.

Horrible

This fancy games are always bugged gat stuck on doors and such, And in the begining of the game... it says i dont have a key card??? how do i get one???? bececause no tutorial said how to pick up cards or i dont see one Is such horrible game


Squize responds:

When you start the game you're given a keycard, it says "Press space to open the door", then at the next door it says something like "If you have no keycards you can shoot open a door".
Confusing and horrible I know, the game telling you exactly what to do, what was I thinking ?

Very well done... but very unoriginal

This was pretty good. I liked the physics in this, there wern't many bugs in it like alot of people have been saying that make you quit and do the whole chapter all over again, i like how you move slow, just gives you the chance to know when an enemy is coming and gives it a nice feeling of fear, like the character you play as is too paralysed to run, but can slowly walk. I also find the fact of putting that Plan 9 From Outer Space movie pretty interesting. A free game AND a free movie, a good win. The only complaint is this... well, this is like many other top down shooters. If you added something special to this that not many other top down shooters have, it would have gotten a 10/10 because it had something original and special in the game. But sadly, it's 9/10 because it's just a regular top down shooter. A tiny problem is that i can see the Sci-fi and Shooter in this, but i just don't see the Horror part happening. There was really nothing scary about this, so it was disappointing.

But yea, 9/10 5/5 i hope the game gets improved or has a sequel on the way that is more improved then this because, even though Flash is hard to do, i can see alot more potential that could be put in this game.

Generic is the Key Word Here

What's with all these 'survival horror' games that always boil down to nothing more than a top down shooter with poorly lit environments? For what it is, it's an okay game - but the top down genre is one that makes up a large part of the internet's flash games, and to stand out, your game needs to do something special. I played through this hoping or that something to be introduced but besides a few gimmicks it was no different than any of this website's other mindless shooters. Even the atmosphere felt overdone, we've seen movies, video games and even other Newgrounds submissions that carry out this exact feeling - I won't lie - It was cool the first few times - for sure it was, but when something becomes too predictable, it loses it's magic. Look, I know, Flash games take a lot of effort to make, I could never make a game on par with this, but a review is a personal opinion, not a score derived from sympathy. Yeah; It's a well made game, you added everything a standard top down shooter needs, survival mode, challenges, a multitude of upgradable weapons and even spectacular physics in a FLASH GAME! But.. in the end it's just more of the same. It was decently entertaining while it lasted, but it's nothing I'll remember for more than a few days. And for that I gotta give you a 7.
