Id to Revive Little Known Franchise



Id Software have announced they're at work on a fourth version of Doom
. You may not be aware of Doom - it's a relatively minor PC piece of obscura which is only rarely talked about, but it's to Id's credit that they're willing to follow this very peripheral piece of PC history. Among its many unusual ideas, Doom is played from the first person perspective and allows you to shoot monsters. While claimed by aficionados to provide a more immersive experience, it's never really caught on. Maybe it will now, eh? They're currently recruiting staff for the project, including a Lead Designer, so it's clearly early days. We wish Id the best of luck in the Sisyphean task of bringing this curio to a marketplace that often shies away from innovative thinking.
