’90s Throwback Shooter DUSK Leaves Early Access

The ’90s-inspired FPS DUSK by David Szymanski and New Blood Interactive has just released from Early Access.

DUSK offers players a true late-’90s retro shooter experience, down to the intentionally ugly, blocky, and low-res graphics. You can check out the latest trailer above.

The campaign is split between three episodes as an homage to old shareware games, and there’s also an endless survival mode and competitive multiplayer.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

DUSK reintroduces you to a world where butchery and bloodshed must be mastered… if you’re to survive ’til dawn. Inspired by Doom, Quake, Blood, Heretic, Hexen, Half-Life, Redneck Rampage and all your ’90s favorites, while featuring a soundtrack by metal music mastermind Andrew Hulshult.

In three distinct campaign episodes hand-crafted from straight outta the ’90s, players will battle through an onslaught of mystical backwater cultists, possessed militants and even darker forces and attempt to discover just what lurks beneath the Earth. Featuring a vast arsenal of badass weaponry including sickles, swords, crossbows, rifles, dual-wielded and double barreled shotguns and incredibly necessary grenade and rocket launchers, DUSK brings unapologetic retro action from start to finish.

In addition to the main campaign, DUSK features an Endless Survival Mode, putting you front and center against wave after wave of merciless enemies.

And for those looking for an extra challenge, DUSK also offers the chance to go head to head online to battle your friends in DUSKWorld arena multiplayer, where darkness hosts the worst of humanity in surprising new ways…

DUSK is available on Windows PC via Steam and the Humble Store for $20, and it’s currently 17% off. It will also be coming to the Switch at some point, but no release date has been announced.
