Mulliga's 2020 Halloween Spectacular: Dusk

Not even a seemingly endless global pandemic can cancel Halloween! As if 2020 wasn't scary enough, this year I am featuring my usual ghoulish assortment of posts. Let's dive into one of the best retro FPSes out there, Dusk.

It's been a couple decades since I first fired up the nailgun in Quake, but that title's run-and-gun gameplay, killer soundtrack, and Lovecraftian horror themes were obviously huge influences on Dusk:

Developed by David Szymanski, Dusk pits you against an army of deranged cultists and misshapen monsters. There's no cover system, no RPG elements, and no regenerating health - just blue/red/yellow keys and a whole lot of bullets. It's breezy nonstop action, but perhaps a little on the easy side for an old hand like me.

Rating: 86/100
