Project Warlock is a frantic old-school shooter coming to GOG this month, other stores later

From looking at screenshots of Project Warlock you'd think it was like any other homage to '90s shooters. But in motion—you can watch a trailer above—you'll notice its far more fluid, more polished, with some brilliant particle effects and huge boss fights. It looks very much like a properly modern-day ode to Doom, Hexen and Wolfenstein, complete with perk points, weapon upgrades, stats and spells. It's coming to GOG as a timed exclusive on October 18, and I think it'll be worth checking out.

A three-part documentary about the making of the new point-and-click adventure has just been finished, so you can watch the development team discuss the challenges they faced, their decision to give Larry a smaller head so he doesn't look quite so much like a gnome, and designing a puzzle around second-hand dildos.

Play RTS Halo Wars for free next weekend

Halo RTS spin-off Halo Wars is having a free weekend on Steam that will start next Thursday and run until Sunday. It'll be worth jumping on: it's a solid RTS with a decent campaign that you'll enjoy even if you're not a fan of the Halo series. A weekend should give you more than enough time to get a feel for it and decide whether to buy it—or, you could just blast through the story in a couple of days and then leave it alone if you're not fussed about the multiplayer.
