"Hi, my name is Jakub Cisło and I started working on Project Warlock when I was still in high school. Today, four years later, I would like to invite you to take a look at the journey of how my passion project became a real game — from an idea seeded in my mind by my dad, to a fast-paced, gory shooter debuting on PS4 on June 9.


Every FPS fan knows the joy of landing a well-placed shotgun shell in the guts of a demon frantically reaching its claws at you, or the excitement of finding a secret area full of gold and much-needed ammo. Project Warlock is all about recreating that feeling.


The passion for annihilating pixelated monsters found its way into my head no doubt thanks to my dad — a true-school gamer through and through. When I was a kid, he showed me such cult-classics as Doom, Hexen, Blood or Heretic, and ever since then they couldn’t leave me alone.


Those action-packed mazes filled with enemies and flying bullets sowed the seed that many years later would sprout into Project Warlock — a love letter to the golden age of fast-paced shooters.



With an unconditional love for pixelated mayhem seated deep in my heart, I started working on Project Warlock while still in high school. Back in 2016 the game was just shaping up, under the name Exitium 3D, which later turned into Cataclysm 3D, and much later given its final title.


Working from scratch, with very little experience and 17 years old at the time, I had to learn almost everything as I went, picking up knowledge and tips on the way. Having in mind a well-defined idea of how these games should feel, I went through a long process of fine-tuning in the early stages of development, to recreate the gory and bloody action of my muses.

Slowly, but surely, it was starting to resemble the shooters we all know like Duke Nukem 3D and Doom."

Pretty sure I got this on Steam via a Humble Bundle VERY recently, have yet to try it out.

Yeah, I saw this thread last week, thought "hey, I would like to check that game out at some point". Yesterday, I went through the Humble Choices  that I've been ignoring fom the last few months, and boom there it is.
