DUSK Early Access

DUSK is now available in Early Access on Steam, offering the first-person shooter for Windows. This trailer offers a look at DUSK's fast-paced gameplay and retro graphics, which are inspired by the classics of the early 90s such as QUAKE and HERETIC. The Early Access version launches with two episodes, and a third episode is on the way, and this post from a couple of weeks ago outlines their plans to move towards an official release, which will also include macOS and Linux support. Here's word:

The gleefully violent Early Access release of DUSK includes Episode 1, which has received fan praise and media acclaim for its quick action and unapologetic homages to the mid-nineties FPS genre, and introduces Episode 2 for the first time. In addition to the campaign episodes and endless survival mode, the Early Access release also now includes the open beta run of DUSKWorld, the multiplayer component of DUSK - so you can shoot your friends in the face with double barreled shotguns.

New Blood assures fans that the game will not linger in Early Access any longer than it has to, and have a complete, lengthy and semi-entertaining FAQ here for any players with questions or concerns: http://steamcommunity.com/games/519860/announcements/detail/1587947907202018531

DUSK transports players into and underneath the creepy backwoods of the American Northeast where you wake up hanging on a meat hook and must escape using any means necessary (dual sickles in this case). In this Quake-meets-Cabin-In-The-Woods retro FPS , you'll encounter an onslaught of mystical backwater cultists, possessed militants and even darker forces as you attempt to discover just what lurks beneath the Earth as things get deeper and darker.

Still to come in Early Access over the coming weeks is Episode 3, Endless Arena 3, achievements, trading cards, leaderboards and more.

New Blood has also laid out plans for the game's post-launch, which includes The DAWN SDK, Steam Workshop support, co-op, plus Mac and Linux versions of the game.

And probably other stuff too. Even a big box physical collector's edition. Nice.
