It's about a small group of game developers which developed a game with some kind of demon/devil as a monster or boss. The game was in the style of the early doom or Wolfenstein. It's an old movie..

At some time, the building was struck by lightning, and this demon actually came to life! The demon slaughtered all or most of the people that were in the building.

I can't remember the ending, but it is an old movie (early 2000 maybe even before 2000.

  • Could you be thinking of Deadly Games, starring Christopher Lloyd as a video-game-generated demon called "The Jackal"? I know its a series rather than a movie, but I don't think it got far beyond a pilot. imdb.com/title/tt0111937/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_142 Commented Jan 16, 2018 at 15:41

Here is the trailer from YouTube.
