After the physical releases of SIGIL and Dangerous Dave, this is the first PC Big Box prepared by Romero Games for a title that wasn’t personally developed by John Romero. Project Warlock was made by then-19-years-old Jakub Cislo as his debut title. His ideas and design skills have caught the attention of the legendary game designer who played the game and became a fan. The limited release called Project Warlock - Ihet Edition is the result of their shared passion for pixelated carnage.

Newly revealed Project Warlock - Ihet Edition PC Big Box will include:

  • Individually numbered box 
  • Personal signatures by John Romero and Jakub Cislo
  • Project Warlock swag bag
  • 4 GB Custom Buckshot USB with the game
  • Big, wall-friendly poster
  • 3 steel pins of Project Warlock’s Formidable Foes
  • 4 “Faces of Warlock” stickers

Since its release in 2018, Project Warlock has gathered a loyal following on Steam, GOG, and consoles and is one of the games pioneering what is called the boomer shooter revival. Thanks to regular content updates the game now features:

  • 60 gore-packed levels
  • 5 monster inhabited worlds
  • 72 slaughter happy enemies
  • 38 easily triggered weapons
  • 8 earth-shaking spells
  • 12 playstyle altering perks

Retro shooter fans can pre-order Project Warlock - Ihet Edition PC Big Boxes at The Romero Shop, starting from $49.94 plus shipping.
