Romero's episode

Recommended Posts

I e-mailed John Romero asking him about his DOOM episode, and givin him some ideas I had. He answered me with..


Thanks for the nice email. I have very little time to work on the DOOM stuff
and my only plan was to make some new levels in a 10-level set, based on the
first episode textures. Nothing big and crazy as I don't have the time. So,
I'd rather work on it alone since I do it when I have time. :)

- John

Considering the guy just got married, I doubt we'll be seeing a new episode from him anytime soon, if ever.

I don't believe Romero and Carmack are working on Doom 3.

I think they split up after Quake because of DaiKatana.

10 level E1 set? Sounds good except that an E1 set for Doom II is kind of a bad mix... hopefully he leaves out the Doom II baddies.

Perhaphs. I'm not well informed about what's happening with contemporary IDsoft. So if Romero isn't working on D3, it's not the ID we used to know anymore.

Have you guys read Masters of Doom? It basicly explains what happened to ID, before and after. Did you know that ID made Commander Keen?

Crazy shit.

Yeap... And also first game of the Catacombs series was ID's work If I remember. It had the same main menu as the one met in late Keen's :P Softdisk was only distributing the first game, and then made another three based on ID's engine (Abyss, Apocalipse, and the one I can't remember)...

If I'm mistaking, tell me the truth.

Dangerous Dave was ID as well, I believe. Although they were called softdisk back then.

There's no way he'd do another Doom episode. That'd be like us deciding to make a new lego castle after all these years. He's so passed Doom it's ridiculous. He's gone on with his life.

I see that my metaphor has fallen on deaf ears. Insert the words "rocking horse" for "legos" in my original metaphor and see if that helps.
