The Outsider is a click-and-point adventure game based on H.P. Lovecraft's short story of the same name. I won't summarize it, because the game does a pretty good job of that. The game was made for the Newgrounds Game Jam 5, of which the theme was Literature. I had two artist partners this time out, Aigis and J-qb, both quite talented.

The game's reception took me as a surprise. It got to a score of 4.23/5 on Newgrounds, beat the games from the jam favorites, and to this day remains the highest-rated Newgrounds Game Jam game. It also get sponsored on Andkon Arcade and ArmorGames. Apparently people REALLY like Lovecraft...

Not bad at all for a game made in three days!
