"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.

Maybe its... Yeah this is awesome

This actually relates to all of the sci-fi games of the century and I love how you have all of those acheivments to keep us motivated to play. The lighting is perfect, and the monsters in the shadows keep the suspense going. This game is great. But, I think you rank up too quickly. I played for 5 minutes and already I am rank 11.

Wow, we've never had that bug during testing, what a weird one.
Thanks for flagging it up, we should hopefully be doing a 1.1 soon where we can fix all these little things which always slip through. Cheers.

Very well done!

While others raise valid points about its "lack of originality", I still really enjoyed this fresh take on a standard game.

The interface was decent, the only thing I would change is the shift menu. In my opinion, having the weapons menu on toggle was a little confusing for me, and I would have preferred holding down shift and letting go when I had selected my weapon (if that's possible).

I really liked the story and the overall feel of it as well. It's hard to be truly scary in a flash game, but you really made it creepy (what with those "owl men").

The sounds were cool (loved the pistol!) and the music for the big bug fights was awesome.

SPOILER------------------------------
---------------
I did find a sort of a bug. At the last level when you're supposed to blow the place to high heaven by placing the blasting cap on the explosives, I'm fairly sure I didn't. And I still finished the game. I was going ahead to make sure that if it was a timed escape (like Metroid! Which this game reminded me of. In a good way) occurred that the way would be clear. But instead, I won.

I was confused.
SPOILER END----------------------------------

But great game overall. One of the few I actually strove to finish.

Ghost in the machine.

Well like everyone else, yes this game is awesome, and yes everything fits quiet nicely. So that's 10, now despite myself I had to -1 (Which i still do tentatively) because there was in my gaming experience quite a few constant bugs, now I have no idea where they came from or how they got there (But I shot and killed them all ^^ Harharhar. . .) no really, for some reason weapon upgrades on my pulse rifle did absolutely nothing, which isn't so bad cause the guns kinda cool as it is. Also for some odd reason upgrading my standard gun said it cost so much eg: 3000 credits but instead would charge me nothing. Still the game was playable and rather enjoyable, with attention to detail, and a constant theme of good sci-fi horror, and the little things like adding those info card thingy's. Now that I think about it those bugs seem uncommon, maybe too uncommon. . . particularly so, like its mutating. . . O.o

Its a good game but...

I wished you could have a button to make your character run.
Also that you had a knife because sometimes the aliens get to close and you have to shoot them till they die.
Im not saying this in a bad way. Its just an advice. Awesome game
