id Software 20 Year Anniversary Video

Recommended Posts

Gamespot posted a 30 minute anniversary video interviewing some of the key people of id about their 20 years in the gaming industry. A few questions are answered; for example, why id is no longer in the engine licensing business. You can check out the full video over at Gamespot's website.

Heh, the Doom multiplayer footage (around 13 minutes in) uses Skulltag (in OpenGL mode, even).

I thought it was awesome they included that shot, also because I just played on that map recently.

That was a pretty cool video, and it convinced me a little bit that id aren't total sell-outs :P

Cool, I learned a little bit I wasn't sure about before, like their attitude with engine licensing and that Carmack was getting sidetracked a bit... glad he feels he can focus more now on making new stuff. I am excited about an engine using voxels/whatever... especially if it's destructible. The VR stuff he's looking at now is kinda neat too, but I'm a bit skepticle that'll be a big deal next generation... but he probably will know better then most what the next big thing will be...

I just hope Rage is good... please be good...

Based on what we've seen thus far, I don't think we have to worry about Rage being anything but a good game, at the very least. It will probably not be absolutely, mind-blowingly awesome and innovative in every aspect, but will it be downright bad? Highly unlikely.

John Carmack sounds like one those scientists from Half Life.

That explains the lack of engine licensing. They refused to go another step!
