If we talk about the inspirations of Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun Grant StewartThe chief designer of the game, who does not hide which games inspire him the most:
“We’re obviously inspired by DOOM and some mods like Brutal DOOM for the game, but we’re also very impressed with more modern things reminiscent of shooters from the past. I know there are various versions of DOOM, but DOOM 2016 and DOOM Eternal were fundamental to us. Stick to the retro classics. We tried to take the best elements of modern games while remaining.”
Naturally, his inspirations were also id Software’s Quake, Epic Games’ Unreal Tournament and other games like Ultrakill and Blood: Fresh Supply.
