Outpost isn't a Russian knock-off The storyline is based around a tabletop RPG similar to Dungeons & Dragons. Also, it isn't heavy into constant stat rolls/game notifications. I guess, in that respect, it's LitRPG light, and my stories don't have rapid level advancement. So if you are into those things in what you prefer to read, Outpost (and Betrayal) probably isn't for you. But if you do pick it up, I hope you enjoy the read.
