Romero's BLACKROOM Kickstarter Paused

The BLACKROOM Kickstarter page announces the cancellation, for the moment, of the crowdsourced fundraising for BLACKROOM, a first-person shooter proposed by id Software expatriates John Romero and Adrian Carmack. The accompanying update explains that they have are "pressing 'PAUSE'" on the campaign to produce a playable demo based on the feedback to their original pitch. Here's word:
You asked for it, and you’re getting it: a gameplay demo of BLACKROOM.

The team is at work on a demo which demonstrates the kind of gameplay, look and innovative, cool features that make BLACKROOM truly unique — the things we’ve waited years to put into an FPS and which make us incredibly excited about this game.

There’s a hitch here, a hitch that’s making us do something that’s right for the game, the team, and the community: we’re pressing “PAUSE” on the fundraising campaign for BLACKROOM to complete this gameplay demo. Simply put, this will take more time than the Kickstarter has left, so we’ve decided to suspend the campaign and launch a new one when the gameplay demo is ready. We believe, however, it is the right choice. We know you do, too. Thanks to your feedback, we know we should have included it at launch.

To all of our backers: your support has been incredible and valuable. We will, of course, honor backer achievements in the next campaign (and an extra something for those of you who continue to support us in the next campaign).

While we're working on the first gameplay demo, we welcome you to stay in touch with us at nightworkgames.com and @nightworkgames. Sign up for our newsletter for regular updates. You’re also welcome to email us at info@nightworkgames.com.

I would venture to bet that those people who contributed to this kickstarter are doing it solely out of blind devotion to Doom and his Doom legacy, and have absolutely no memory of Daikatana or how he had a significant hand in blowing up Ion Storm, or the infamous "John Romero is going to make you his bitch."

He's the very definition of "risky bet" which is the only reason he stopped to actually produce something. There's no way any sane person with memory of the above events would give that person a dime on a whisper and promise of a game, without something to show for it... and I think he knows that. Now.
