'Outlast' was inspired by 'Mirror's Edge'

Developer Red Barrel's upcoming horror title Outlast has been compared to Mirror's Edge and it's a comparison they're not shying away from.

The comparison was first made by VentureBeat but was embraced by Red Barrel's co-founder David Chateauneuf.
“Mirror’s Edge was definitely a good inspiration. We definitely like that feeling that you are actually the main character and not feeling that you’re just a camera floating in the air with a gun at the bottom of the screen,” he said.

“We definitely want [players] to feel more immersed by the experience. So by having to interact with the environment, we’ll put the player more close to the action. For us, it was really important. Really touching the walls, and interacting with different things. That’s something that we want to bring to the game.”
Red Barrel employs several ex-staffers that worked on the Uncharted and Assassin's Creed franchise.

The game is out in 2013.
