About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'Beyond Sunset' Is A Cyberpunk FPS/RPG Using The Original Doom Engine, PC Demo Available Now - Screens & Trailer

by Judy on June 13, 2022 @ 6:57 p.m. PDT

Beyond Sunset is an RPG/shooter made by using a port of the original Doom engine.

You are Lucy, an enhanced street samurai searching for lost memories. Fight yakuza, zombies & robots in large, open, interactive levels. Inspired by Doom Eternal & Deus Ex, made using a modernized Doom II engine!

Sunset City, 20XX. You wake up in a strange facility. Everything wants you dead.

You awake from cryostasis with memories lost in the confusing fog of hypersleep. Immediately you begin to manifest powerful abilities. Lightning-fast reactions. Innate combat skills. Near-supernatural agility.

Your talents are quickly recognized. A mysterious woman named Yuri offers you a deal. In exchange for getting your memories back, you need to utilise your powers to become a street samurai in the crime-ridden, plague-stricken Sunset City.

The Beyond Sunset demo is available during the Steam Next Fest 2022, from June 13-20, 2022.
