John Romeros new company

Recommended Posts

Interesting. Will it follow the spirit of Doom or go an entirely new design? Time will tell.

They should upload their website before linking to it. Vague landing pages are acceptable (and previously used by Slipgate Ironworks), but GoDaddy domain parking pages are just n00bish.

It is interesting news, however.

He should remake Daikatana, I liked the concept.


Ah.. Daikatana. I'm going to cruise around that game sometime soon after I find the disc.

The concepts in Daikatana could work in the current industry if you remove the limited saves, and the sidekick escorts.

1- Is it mod-friendly?
2- Is it linear, non-linear, sandbox, etc?
3- Please tell us its not being some Doom clone.

What exactly could this FPS be like? Like Doom 2016?(I wonder what Romero thinks of it...)

This is damn awesome news. If Romero can make that e1m8b wad after 20 YEARS, and still be awesome, who knows what a whole FPS will be like?

What good news! I can't wait to see more first person shooters developed by John Romero.

Will they continue to have a status bar with your face and taunting exit messages?

Status bar faces need to make a comeback! I feel like seeing your characters reactions in real time honestly adds an element of immersion.

I bet they will. Not to mention that it will have awesome multiplayer environment, ludicrous gibs, and funny easter eggs, including developer's severed head inside of the final boss. I hope.

Doom 2016 will have one head in a spike easter-egg, it was confirmed by Marty Stratton in the Gameinformer Show interview.

I'm so glad that the developers of id software haven't lost their sense of humor.

That sounds like both Doom 1 and Doom 2! You said "Easter" and I thought of the bunny.

Hopefully his Wife can keep him in line enough to make the best out of his creativity while preventing it from becoming a disaster like (ugh, hate to go there) Daikatana.

Ah, so the missis is involved too... nice.
Looking forward to see what they have in store.

I'm really looking forward to their new game's advertisement campaign. It'll probably be like "John Romero still wants to make you his bitch!"

To be honest, Left 4 Dead has shown that AI partners can work perfectly fine in an FPS.

Feels like it'd be more important to remove the fact that basically every weapon is more of a threat to you than your enemies.

Given Brenda Braithwaite's recent "let's make games that make people more moral!" nonsense, I doubt it.

If you want to take a look at how that would look like in modern games check out Neon Shadow, it's a fps for mobile devices.

yall didn't know this? he hinted at it during the tech gone bad release. he posted pictures on face book quite some time ago. I think it will be similer to doom as he said tech gone bad was a warm up. I can't wait, I really do love johns game design.

That form is extremely hard to read. Now if only there was a form for me to complain about the horrible choice of font for the original form.

Has John Romero released any game after Daikatana?

Yes, though the biggest one being Hyperspace Delivery Boy.

Last ten years or so though there's basically been nothing to show from any of his started projects.
