"I rather enjoyed Outcry. I am a fan of these types of titles and Outcry is one of the best adventure titles that I’ve ever played in recent history." - GameChronicles.com
Outcry combines elements of classical Myst-like adventure games, along with author's approach to visual and audio environment. The interactive soundtrack has been designed for the game by Anthesteria project. The main character receives an invitation letter from his brother - whom he hasn't seen for years, and decides to visit him. However upon arrival, the writer receives news about sudden disappearance of his brother and as he finds out, the scientist has been secretly working on a mysterious machine, which could separate one's consciousness from his physical appearance.
- Highly-detailed photorealistic surroundings made in the best traditions of Myst and Scratches.
- A mystic and philosophic plot. Action takes place in a surreal atmosphere of the first half of XX century and touches aspects of one's mentality, unconscious condition and internal conflicts.
- Unique system of puzzles which requires the player to use different perception aspects (associations, noises, time and space).

I want to start off this review by explaining to you that this is one of the strangest games I have ever played. It is extremely surreal, and perhaps it is the art style that messed with my mind and immersed me in the story and the gameplay. Basically your brother has disappeared and you have to go looking for him in all these odd places. Weird things happen along the way as you solve puzzles, look for clues, and journey through the depths of the game. Very strange and surreal, but also pretty decent.
