Slay Demons With Old-School Flair in GOG Timed Exclusive Project Warlock

Published: October 11, 2018 3:36 PM /



Old-school FPS fans rejoice, a new game in this shooter renaissance looks to be in the making with the upcoming timed exclusive, Project Warlock.

Project Warlock is a self-described FPS that "fans of Doom, Hexen, and Wolfenstein cannot miss." It has the iconic 2.5D graphics of the 90s shooter era, plenty of weapons, tons of blood and gore, and more. According to the GOG store page, it features:

  • 60 levels
  • 5 worlds
  • 72 enemies
  • 38 weapons
  • 8 spells
  • 12 perks
Spells and perks, you ask? It's a bit different from its predecessors - the game has "perk-based character development." As you level up, you can increase strength, life, spirit, and capacity. One example of a spell is "Holy Guard" which generates a damage-absorbing shield. You'll definitely need all the help you can get, since there are no save points, and plenty of brutal enemies. See the game in action in the trailer below:

Perhaps most surprising of all is not what is contained inside the game, but who made it. Project Warlock is developed by a single individual: Jakub Cislo. He's a 19 year old student, and Project Warlock is his labor of love.

If you can't wait to get your hands on the game for yourself, I've got good news - the game releases next week. October 18th, 2018, Project Warlock will launch first on GOG.

Quick Take

I can relate to developer Jakub Cislo. I'm 22 years old, so I didn't get to experience the full glory of 90s FPS games. I've played a fair bit of the most popular ones the past few years, including Hexen, Heretic, Shadow Warrior, and yes, Doom. I've been keeping an eye on games trying to relive the FPS glory days like AMID EVIL, and so I'm definitely interested in Project Warlock. I'll be checking this one out for sure.
