is now available
, offering a throwback first-person shooter for Windows. This is a
timed exclusive, so it will not be offered elsewhere until some time down the
road. A look at the launch
quickly reveals the inspiration this draws from classics like DOOM
and HEXEN, something which is embraced in the release news:
Warlock is a first person shooter that fans of Doom, Hexen and Wolfenstein
cannot miss. It serves you an exploding cocktail of bullets, spells and
monsters. In Project Warlock you battle through 60 levels of non stop action
packed with bloodthirsty enemies and challenging bosses. The game offers not
just firepower, but perk-based character development, weapon upgrades and
unlockable spells system. This high-quality independent gem is priced to appeal
to fans of polished indie titles and seekers of classic fps experience alike.
Back in April 2018 hundreds of gamers had a chance to experience an early build
of Project Warlock and gave their enthusiastic feedback. The following six
months the Buckshot team, with it’s showrunner Jakub Cislo, spent on polishing
the game to bring you the most complete and satisfying experience. The end
result is something you can check for yourself – Project Warlock is available
exclusively to GOG users right now.
Oh. And John Romero thinks “it looks cool”.
