With the likes of DUSK, Amid Evil, and Ion Maiden among a few others - we're currently seeing a number of impressive old-school '90s style shooters emerge from the indie scene. And now it's time to add Project Warlock to the list, which does things a little differently - by drawing on 8-bit, 16-bit, PC-DOS classics and music and film from the '80s and '90s to deliver a fast-paced retro blast.
In terms of look and feel, Project Warlock indeed draws inspiration from classic shooters from the ‘90s – with nods to everything mentioned in the introduction like Doom, Hexen, Quake, and even the original Wolfenstein. But there’s a freshness to the experience that comes from an obvious infatuation with the 1990s and even 1980s, with everything from games to movies and even music covered. This makes Project Warlock a reinterpretation of classic ideas and design in mixtape form, that often feels modern or retro in ways you wouldn’t expect.

Like young musicians employing 1980s production techniques, or filmmakers creating period pieces in settings and timeframes that they recall from a picture or film, Project Warlock is a wild ride of inspiration and the execution of solid first-person combat.
