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...

Squize responds:

Thanks. A lot of people struggled with the night vision level, lesson learned there :)

Outpost is a game that had initially sparked my interest for being a sci-fi survival horror game with a top-down perspective and since I really like both of these things, I gave it a try.

The Gameplay is simple, fun and with smooth controls so I donâEUTMt have any complaints here other than maybe the absence of hotkeys for weapons.

The Presentation of the game through both the GUI and the level design is absolutely stunning and makes it look like a commercial game! The lighting effects combined with the detailed levels are just brilliant!

The Content is satisfying but it still feels a little lacking in my opinion. I wanted to see a few more levels, more exploration and more enemies. We only have five different kinds of EBE, one of which was a boss. The lack of bosses was a downer but it didnâEUTMt really subtract much from the overall enjoyment of the game.

The Programming seems to be ok for the most part although there do seem to be some odd bugs and glitches in both Story Mode and Swarm Mode. Despite that though, you seem to have fixed most of these issues through updates so this has been somewhat rectified.

I actually like this game so much that I have earned every Medal on it, including the one that requires you to complete all of the challenges. And yes, I still have my sanity after doing so.

Overall, Outpost proved to be a great game even while lacking in some areas. Here are my final scores for Outpost and I hope that my review was helpful to you!

Wow, you completed all the challenges ? Excellent work mate, that's fantastic ( You're only the 2nd person I know who's done that ).

Yeah we're disappointed by the number of bugs, it was tested to death before release but still far too many slipped through. For the sequel we're going to have to look at other ways of testing it as it's going to be bigger in every way, so there will be more chance for bugs to creep in.

Thanks again for the review, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

its very cool but i wonder why you dont start with a lot of people like in the begiining you get 2 people then 1

Squize responds:

We didn't want it to be like Aliens where you have a large squad only for them all to be killed and to be left alone. Everyone would know from the start that that would be what would happen, so it would be a lot of extra time / code etc. just for an obvious set-up.

It's very hard to get characterisation into a Flash game, so you wouldn't have time to get to know the squad members and actually care they've been ripped apart, so it would just be sprites being killed, and I dunno how fun that would be in this context.

Thanks for playing and taking the time to review it though mate, hope you enjoyed it.
