Outcast is one of the very rare games to feature spoken dialogs for ALL characters in the game.

Depending on the actions of the player the dialog will branch and reflect your reputation among NPCs. That means we have recorded hours and hours of possible dialog lines, and all that in three languages: English, German and French. More languages are supported via subtitles: Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Portuguese (Brasil).
