Founded in 2006, The Outhouse has developed as an independent community of comic book fans with an unapologetically honest and outspoken opinion on comics and all aspects of geek culture.

Next I talked with Allen from Smashmuck Champions to talk a little about the creation of the game and it’s characters as well as the beta that they’ve recently released on steam! Next was Phillipe Morin from Red Barrels to talk about their new horror survival game Outlast and how they came to be as a studio. Finally I was joined by studio head of Compulsion Games Guillaume Provost to talk about their game Compulsion, its lead characters, the art style and just so much more!
The scene at DC’s offices in New York City this morning was a familiar one: dozens of creators huddled around a computer monitor, watching Twitter and rumor website Bleeding Cool for news of which of them will still be working for DC Comics next month.
