Masters of Doom

Post by Keening_Product » Sat May 28, 2016 19:53

Here's a nice little read on what Romero and Carmack have been doing in gaming and tech since their partnership fell apart. Tom Hall gets a mention, but sadly (though understandably) there is an implication that Romero is not interested in revisiting old projects. That's not really a blow as the game was Hall's baby and it's Hall who has been the one seeking the rights.

Here's the link: http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/new ... k-20160527

//Nicely written article spoiler alert// For me, the most striking line was "we never talk to John Carmack," where "we" is pretty much the entire id software team. Though I suppose that has been implied for a long time if not actually publicly stated.

I also never knew Dangerous Dave was so huge in India! Now the mobile release makes total sense.

Here's hoping Commander Keen gets big in the subcontinent next. It's a natural progression.

Maybe we should place ads for Keen on Indian websites and in newspapers. "From the makers of Dangerous Dave in Copyright Infringement comes.... Commander Keen!

Heh. It's pretty neat to imagine -- all those possible levels and mods from people that aren't from the West. I so want that to happen.

'Wait, so you want a patch so that when Keen dies he comes back as an enemy sprite depending on how he played?'
What you really need, not what you think you ought to want.
