John Carmack Developing Oculus VR Games

John Carmack is developing games for Oculus VR headsets, reports Engadget based on a conversation with Oculus Rift's Brendan Iribe and Aaron Davies. Carmack joined Oculus Rift as their CTO last year while maintaining ties to id Software, the developer he co-founded a couple of decades ago, but it seemed his game development days were at an end when he later departed id before this news that the itch remains. "He's working on a lot of exciting tech," Iribe tells them. "But, his heart and soul and history certainly lies in the game-development side." Iribe compares this to how Epic Games supports the Unreal Engine with internal development. "That's always been Epic's philosophy. And it's what allowed them to make what they made," he explains. "It's certainly been id's philosophy in the past. It's been John Carmack's philosophy -- you gotta eat your own dog food here, and develop internal content also." He wraps up by telling them they will be hiring more game developers in the next six to 12 months to support their plans. Thanks CVG.

Excellent role for John if that is the case. His work as always been great for showing off what can be done, sometimes I wish he could find a game designer who could drive his engines how he expects it will work but at the very least he can create tech demos to show case how he has helped shaped the hardware.

Also, he has always appeared to want to help the community move forward by using his influence on hardware (birth of 3d accelerators for example). While not everybody would agree with his choices, its still great to see somebody put the effort in.

Good luck to John Carmack and the Oculus team, hopefully the tech will help change the way people interact with computers.
