Anyone who has owned a computer or gaming console knows “DOOM.” The hellish first person shooter that set the bar for generations to come. Doom would go on to inspire franchises like Wolfenstien and Halo.
So John Romero, the father of the first person shooter, has come out of the shadows to announce he is working on a new DOOM level.
In a recent tweet he stated,
After exiting the Computer Station you knew the worst was up ahead. You still hadn’t reached the place where the demons were coming from,” the included text file says. “The steel door shuts behind you as you realize you’re there; you’re at the Phobos Anomaly. Cracks from hell are all over the place as seepage from the portal invades the entire installation. Now it’s time to find the portal and stop the demons from coming through. You know UAC had hundreds of scientists working at a high-tech lab somewhere in this area, and the portal must be connected to it somehow. Time to lock and load.
With so many games coming out of the woodworks, it’s great to see someone return to their roots to bring more of what started out love of gory, action-packed, video game violence. I’m excited to see what kind of hell awaits me!
