    Anyone who has played the first Outcast knows the game was a near-perfect balance between action and adventure, with a very engaging storyline, and good characters. Not to mention the grapical mood and the excellent soundtrack, of course.

    Appeal, the Belgian society who developped it, started working on its sequel, the Lost Paradise, which looked very promising - look at some pics below. Unfortunately, after an unexpected message from the devs - "Because of new development opportunities, we are sorry to inform you that the development of Outcast 2 has been momentarily suspended." - Appeal bit dust this August.

    Now some of the people who developped the first installment have created a new society called Elsewhere Entertainment, which could resume working on the game if Infogrames, who holds the license, allows it. To help convincing them to do so, there's an online petition.

    Please, if you like those images, or/and if you played and liked the first Outcast, take five minutes to sign this petition.

    Just signed it.

    Doubt it will help, but it's worth a try.

    Yeah, i just signed it too.
    I rather doubt that this will do too much, unless its a game thats really really well known throughout america. Ive done these petition thingies before, And if anyone remembers the Space Quest series, which got numerous petioners against Sierra's indefinate suspention on SQ7, the petitioners got sierra kinda scared, or at least they really really took notice of how many people out there wanted there to be a 7th game, but still they didnt do anyhting about it
