John Romero's About To Make You His Twitter Follower

I bet a Daikatana 2 Kickstarter would actually work

2012 is, I suspect, going to be a milestone year for old men like some of you and all of us at RPS – one in which old names resurged and old genres returned. Schafer, Fargo, Avellone, Harvey Smith, Molyneux (potentially), XCOM and now, perhaps, one John Romero. The lion-maned, occasionally controversial co-creator of Doom has been away from mainstream games for a while now, focusing on social and mobile titles at the likes of MonkeyStone and Loot Drop, but he recently took to the Twitters to declare “Definitely not! I have plans…” when questioned as to whether he’d entirely abandoned “old school FPS.”
He’s already reassured those panicking that he’s planning on a Daikatana sequel by later promising “there will be no DK2.” To be honest, that’s a terrible shame. Not because Daikatana itself is anything other than boring and dated, but because Romero somehow redeeming that most vilified of titles would be an incredible videogame industry story. It’d be even better than that time that Notch bought a new hat.
