Outlander is a post-apocalyptic action-driving video game for the Sega Genesis and SNES released respectively in 1992 and 1993.

The game was originally developed as a sequel to the first Mindscape game in the Mad Max universe - Mad Max (1990 video game). When Mindscape failed to secure the license's renewal, the title was changed to "Outlander", and specific references to Mad Max were dropped. [1]

Gameplay

Outlander's gameplay combines vehicular combat with on-foot side-scrolling. The main character (which is based on Max Rockatansky) searches for food, ammunition and gasoline in a post-apocalyptic, desert landscape.

Gameplay between the Sega Genesis and SNES versions differ slightly. The driving sequences in the Sega Genesis version are from the driver's perspective of the dashboard (First-person), whilst the SNES version positions the camera behind the car (third-person).
