DUSK is a retro inspired indie FPS. Fight through hordes of enemies with action straight out of the 90's.
Into the pit
Taking inspiration from classic mid-90's FPS titles like Quake, DUSK is an unapologetic love letter to giant bunny hops and ridiculous guns. Players embark on self-contained campaigns (known as episodes), finding weapons and blasting away anything that moves, or challenge friends in online arena battles. While the overall appearance, sound design and combat style are lifted straight from the genre's glory days, DUSK does contain some innovations. Creature design is fantastic and suitably creepy, an endless horde survival mode adds some life, and multiplayer is appreciated. That isn't to say that this a game suitable for a general audience, however. Most of the fun is directly related to nostalgia. Those who didn't play the inspiration materials may find the difficulty and graphical style confusing and irritating. It should also be stated that the game is in an early access state with new content being released occasionally.
Back to basics
DUSK is a game made with obvious love and care for a specific time in gaming. Fans of the same will find an adrenaline rush wrapped in a thumping soundtrack.
