Description

Will Rock has been described as Serious Sam set in Greece.

A budget First Person Shooter where you take the role of the title character, an archaeologist named Will Rock. Your mentor has been murdered by a cult calling themselves the Olympian Restoration Army.

This of course leads to you running around Grecian ruins shooting at hundreds of bad guys and mythological monsters. Like the aforementioned Sam, Will Rock relies more on spawning dozens of bad guys at a time and furious combat than story.

Screenshots

Will Rock Windows Just like in the beginning of the first level, the designers have taken inspiration from the ancient city of Petra. Level 2 starts in the recreation of Petra's theatre.

Trivia

Level design

To create the distinct Ancient Greek/Roman setting of the game, Saber Interactive employed experts in architecture of Classical Antiquity to design the various locations and structures in the levels. Some of the areas are recreations of real-life ancient sites. For example, the palace entrance in the beginning of the game is copied from the exterior of the famous Al Khazneh temple in the city of Petra. The starting area of the second level recreates the Petra amphitheatre. Wall textures used for interior decoration include reproductions of Roman frescoes.
