Reviews

“Surprisingly well-designed with a balance between inventory management, level-wide planning and on-the-fly judgement calls. You don’t buy this for the story. For an indie title over USD 10.00 there’s enough here to keep you playing longer than you think.”
7 – FextraLife

“General gameplay is oozing with the classic horror feel thanks to the tight corridors and darkened rooms, whilst there’s also a plethora of locked doors that you’ll need to locate keys for to make your way through adding a puzzle like element to the game – something long time players of Capcom’s classic horror series will feel at home with. You’ll also uncover a lot of documents that expand upon the lore of the game too, whilst there are plenty of little nods to find hidden throughout the game that’ll bring a smile to Resident Evil fan’s faces.”
6.8 – Use A Potion!

“Outbreak is a top down survival horror game. With only one life to live and small inventory space to play with. Outbreak brings a tough challenge to the table that will raise the brow of the hardcore gamer. With various modes and levels to play you will come back for more trying to stay alive in this game with increasingly brutal difficulty.”
