An action-packed and eye candy boomer shooter inspired by Doom, F.E.A.R. and Quake.

Published (or updated) in May 31st, 2024.

Selaco is an indie sci-fi, cyberpunk and futuristic first-person shooter set during a large-scale invasion of a structure that serves as a refuge for humans. It was developed by Altered Orbit Studios and released in early access on May 30, 2024.

Published by Altered Orbit Studios itself, Selaco was made available for Windows and Linux. It is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most eye-catching “boomers hooters” since this trend began. It’s beautiful visuals, the frenetic action and its pleasant retrowave feel deserve to be noticed.

The Selaco full game is commercial (paid), but there is a free demo that was preserved by the developers themselves.


Official description

Selaco is a brand new original shooter running on GZDoom, and advanced Doom port, featuring thrilling action set pieces, destructibility, smart AI enemies and a fleshed out story taking place within an immersive game world. It draws inspiration heavily from F.E.A.R. in terms of action set pieces, while mixing traditional retro-FPS elements from QUAKE and DOOM, along with some more modern features. Together with professional artists who work in the industry, several having worked on successful throwback FPS games in the past, Selaco is a fully fleshed out world full of character, action, and mystery.


The story takes place during a violent invasion of Selaco, the underground facility that’s home to the surviving refugees after the fall of Earth. You play as Dawn, an ACE Security Captain who, with her recent promotion and high level security clearances, is digging deep into the truth behind Selaco’s murky history. Before she can finish her investigation, Selaco is rocked by explosions and armed invaders. While Selaco may take place in a large-scale conflict, much of it will be the personal story of Dawn, the center-piece of the game.


A lengthy story-driven campaign

Selaco is a story-driven experience, and we don’t say that lightly. A dedicated writer has been brought on board to assist with creating an engaging and believable sci-fi story and world.

Intense Action set pieces

Turn the entire world into confetti with the destructive power of your weapons. Every single bullet will react properly with any materials or objects you hit. Our artists have created many different variations for each (voxel) object to ensure that the aftermath of each encounter is palpable. That once lavish office space now nothing but a pile of rubble with broken paintings, smashed tables, screen, chairs, smoke, and chunks of debris.

Custom AI

With its FEAR influence, writing proper AI was a goal from the get go. The enemy is fully aware of each other’s presence and work together to take you down. They will keep their distance if you apply constant pressure on them, will rush you if you hide or run out of bullets, toss grenades if you use the same cover for too long, and much more. Hundreds of custom lines have been written and acted out, providing hints to the player about their current plans and tactics.

Full soundtrack

Selaco is accompanied by a full length original soundtrack composed by an experienced musician who has worked on many games in the past.

Professional voice-acting

To help immerse players in the story and atmosphere of Selaco, professional voice actors have been brought on board. Dawn will be voiced by the incredibly talented Melissa Medina, with other casting choices revealed at a later date.

Extra Gamemodes

Completing levels allows you to replay that level in Incursion Mode, an expanded version of that map where your skills will be tested against a near endless onslaught of enemies. Win incursion maps to gain bonuses to aid you throughout the campaign. New exclusive Incursion Levels and new mutators will also be unlocked as the campaign progresses.
