What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The original Project Warlock was one developer’s passion project that went through a number of iterations and picked up a great crew along the way. Their combined effort made the game that to this day receives updates and improvements based on players' feedback. This time we want to give you access to the game early on, so the final product can become an explosive and enjoyable mix of our ideas and your expectations.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate up to 1 year of Early Access. We know that we’ll need about 4-6 months for each of the two remaining chapters in order to deliver the quality we want. We’ll also continue refining the first chapter based on your feedback. The first chapter is already in the final playtesting phases, while the work on the second is well underway. We aim to keep this schedule but it might change over time.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full game will consist of 3 single-player chapters set in distinct worlds and each with a different playable Warlock character. Each character has their own skills, perks, unique weapons, and magic skills to unlock.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This version gives you access to the complete first chapter in which you play as Palmer.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. We feel it’s only fair to let the people who believe in Project Warlock II from early on and is willing to share their thoughts on a title in development pay a bit less than the folks who are perfectly fine with waiting until the whole game is finished.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will gather user feedback through a dedicated form and participate in forum discussions. We’ll provide a milestone plan for game updates and deliver news on the game as it is being developed. Even by simply playing the game, you will already help us by providing crucial metrics allowing us to refine difficulty levels, enemies, weapons, and the overall map design.”

About This Game

Available now: Chapter 1

  • Palmer campaign
  • 12 sprawling vertical levels
  • 20 weapon upgrades
  • 22 monsters
  • Character progression through Stats and Perks

Warlock Evolved

Project Warlock II picks up right after the events of the first game. Warlock’s disciples Palmer, Urd, and Kirsten, each bring their own arsenals of skills, perks, unique weapons, and spells to the table, as well as personal reasons to confront their old master.

Levels in the game evolved into vertical, three-dimensional, multi-floored structures, platforms, and buildings that literally elevate the gameplay. Each of the 3 chapters of Project Warlock II will consist of 12 levels, each one more vertical and intricate than in the original game.

Explosive Combat

Palmer, Urd, and Kirsten carry unique arsenals of weapons and magic skills based on their personas that enable different playstyles. Their tools of destruction can be upgraded resulting in 20+ weapons for each character.

In the first chapter don the mantle of Palmer, whose love for ice, fire, and dual guns fuels the fight against relentless Ghoul hordes, naked Imps jumping you from behind, Turbo Knights with rocket launchers, flying Cacobots, and massive Pigdemons blocking your way.

During your bloody rampage you will encounter mini-bosses and bosses that will jump, run, hold, hop, whirl, and use every attack style at their disposal to turn you into doggie chow.

Back to the Roots

The legacy of the first Warlock lives on in the sequel! The goal with Project Warlock II is to take the gameplay you enjoyed from the original game and elevate it without losing the “Warlock soul”.

Character progression is back in the form of Stats and Perks Points for you to find, scattered around the levels. Use them at the stations in the HUB - a level between the levels, similar to Workshop from the original Project Warlock - and enhance your abilities to take the demonic carnage to another level.

During your adventure across the 3 chapters of Project Warlock II you will find familiar demons, weapons and spells… Some of them can mysteriously be found in the desert… weird.

  • 20+ weapons and upgrades to unlock for each character
