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.

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. You can find the petition here.
