Daikatana on Steam

Daikatana is now available on Steam, offering the chance to check out the shooter and be The Romero's bitch for just $6.99 (though it's been cheaper: the game was free for a while years ago on GameTap). The sci-fi game featuring a magical sword and a pair of AI sidekicks was intended as the flagship title from ION Storm, an honor which turned out to be shared by Deus Ex and Anachronox, but the game seems to be in witness protection, as no developer is listed. Thanks nin.

Game had a lot of potential, but the engine was dated and Romero's PR campaign backfired on him. In Daikatana, one can see that Romero wanted to take the FPS to new heights gameplay wise (the rpg elements,the skyscraper level, etc...). Carmack, on the other hand, wanted to make engines. Some believe Carmack won, but I believe gaming lost. After Romero left, ID games were lacking in the gameplay and imagination department. I would have loved to see where ID games would have gone if they stayed together.

Romero was and is a vital part of game development.
