The 90s are making a serious comeback. I don’t know if it’s this 20-year cycle that I always hear about, or just that people who grew up during the 90s have fond memories of the decade. Well, one of these people has created a new retro-inspired FPS called Intrude that channels shooters of the 90s, notably Wolfenstein 3-D and the original Doom.
In Intrude, your mission is to blast your way into a long abandoned base that is suddenly taken over by a private military force, find the source of a signal and destroy it.
The gameplay is very reminiscent of Doom and Wolfenstein, where you are faced with pixelated maze-like environments full of enemies, collecting coloured keys that grant access to new areas with an array of secrets to find along the way. The environments themselves even look like the Castle Wolfenstein. Mirroring these classic shooters, the gun is situated in the middle of the screen instead of at the side.
Intrude is developed by one man, Michal Krupa. Michal is a game developer living in the Czech Republic. You can check out Intrude and its soundtrack on Steam right here.
