Didn't he already reveal this before?

I know I've definitely heard it before. It had to be on either the Dev's Play youtube series or his Matt Chat; I know I've heard it before.

well look closer there's 2 marines in the cover, 1 is john romero and the other is still unknow so probably that other marine killed john romero in the end?

 

it was not a suicide mission after all, maybe romero joined to hell legion after ger caught and... killed?

turns out doom is some sort of metaphor for romero's psychological inner-workings.

 

i guess that means he's facing his inner demons.

Come to think about it, this reveal actually makes way more sense of the climax of "Repercussions of Evil" now. :D

Well Romero is the model for the cover, I don't know who made the model for the hud face display.

According to Romero, Adrian drew the status bar face freehand, basing it on no one.

John Romero revealed this in a video interview. I don't have the link but I have seen it a couple years ago.

Surprised I hadn't heard this anecdote before. It's amusing but really Don Punchatz created the magic {RIP}
