Mark Dochtermann has updated his .plan with some info that proves interesting to the development of the new Doom:
It is with some sadness and a lot more jealousy that I must report that our friend and chief technologist, Jim Dose' is leaving the company to join Id Software. Jim has had a tremendous effect on how Ritual Entertainment has turned out and he will certainly be missed. We could be upset with Jim but consider these three facts:
1. Jim is leaving the company to join Id Software. 2. Jim is leaving the company to work on the next Doom. 3. Jim is leaving the company to work on the next Doom.
Everyone at Ritual wishes Jim the best and we thank him for everything he has done to make Ritual the company it is today. As we see it we aren't losing a part of Ritual, a piece of Ritual is joining Id Software.
Not too much I can make comments on here... Dose will probably be taking the place that John Cash / Brian Hook filled during Q2/Q3, but don't quote me on that.
