On Loot Drop

VentureBeat has a profile of Loot Drop, the new social gaming developer recently formed by John Romero and Tom Hall. They say the company now has 11 employees, including recent addition Brenda Brathwaite, and their goal is to launch four games this year, with their first game due "in the coming months." It sounds like after helping create a couple of the most successful shooters in history (DOOM, QUAKE), as well as one of the genre's more notorious flops (Daikatana), The Romero is committed to more casual gaming: "We have satisfied hardcore gamers for decades. Now itís time for the rest of the world. Our opportunity is to teach the rest of the world how to play games."

Their logo makes me want to punch a puppy and kick a baby.

Also, which of the three did Brenda sleep with to get that job?

I'm torn over whether this should be dignified with an answer, but Brenda actually is currently in a relationship with John. I think it needs to be said that your comment seems unfair, as she has more than enough game development credibility to warrant working in any number of studios.
