John Romero Game Announcement Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the 25th anniversary of the release of DOOM, as id Software's seminal first-person shooter first arrived on December 10, 1993. Now the Romero Games Website has word that DOOM designer John Romero's company is announcing a new game tomorrow to celebrate the occasion. VentureBeat has an email from The Romero indicating that this game is actually already complete, and tomorrow the chance will come to preorder this:
25 years ago DOOM was released on December 10th.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, Romero Games will announce pre-orders for a project John Romero just completed.

If you have been following John Romero’s Instagram @theromero you would have seen the hints. What looked like a countdown to Doom’s birthday became suddenly mysterious.

You’ll receive another email on Monday announcing this new project, and have the opportunity to pre-order it.

Wasn't he the guy that announced a game a few months ago and then pulled the announcement. I might keep my pre-order money in my pocket, however unwise that may be. I'm just not getting a warm fuzzy about a romero game or pre-ordering in general.

It's a decency test.

I wonder if this is that Blackroom game he had on kickstarter (which failed) back in 2016.

Along with Peter and Cliff, can't wait. That said, I hope it's amazing, that's the bottom line here, great games, good isn't enough anymore.

If it's already done, why aren't you just releasing it?

In any case, who knows. I didn't even realize he was still making games.

Romero and Carmack pull their Kickstarter campaign for new FPS Blackroom
I guess that was what I was thinking of, how years time flies.

(The following is Satire for Adults(TM). Unborn children, and/or the stonehead monoliths on Easter Island, will definitely not understand.)

Hi, I'm "Suck it Down" John Romero, here. Decades ago I designed a couple of levels in the John Carmack/id software release, "Doom," and ever since then I've been trying very hard to convince people it was my game, all mine--ground up, every level, every line of code--eg, who was J. Carmack, and who cares? etc.

I mean, seriously, if you bought Daikatana then I've already "made you my bitch" (catchy, eh?) once, right? Second time's the charm! So get ready to go, meh bitches!...Your Mast-ah (Is it a wig or is it Romero?) calls! He commands his legion of mindless thralls to rise from the dead once again! Because...*off-key drum roll*...*sour trumpet blast*...

If I get enough paid preorders, and I say if, I might actually develop a game, maybe even Daikatana Remastered 2020, and note that I say this without promising anything--or at least, I might hire the people who will develop the game--or I might wriggle in and ingratiate myself with the people who will actually develop the game--so long as I get all the credit, of course! It's all the same--someone has to take the credit for things that get produced--so why not me? I've found that is a motto that works well for me, personally--always has, if you can't tell.

What? What's that you say? What was my all-time hunky-dory delicious-mostest favorite thing about Daikatana that to this day remains most loved by my swooning ocean of fans? Here's a hint--because if you haven't yet bought my masterpiece of yesteryear, here is all I will say: Talk to the frog...!
It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)

WaltC nailed it. The guy is just a glorified level designer. I'd love to hear what his former coworkers (like at Midway) have to say about his coding ability.

Except for the fact that E1M7 is one of the best levels ever. But whatever...

Let's see what it's about. Won't give it two cents without being 100% sure it's great since Daikatana happened.

New phone game no doubt. I like Romero, but I agree 00% guy is seriously overrated. He's the perfect example of right place at the right time and nothing more.

I hope he pulls off something fairly good. I think he's been punished enough for Daiktana and his dumb words. Only something decent could redeem him, and so far he hasn't accomplished it.
Get your games from GOG DAMMIT!

I have high hopes for this also.

Those two old dogs with their heads together have a lot of potential behind them.

Bring on the greatness!!!

He's a game designer, not an engineer. He doesn't need to be adept at coding. No single person is adept at every aspect of designing video games anymore - there's a reason many have over 400 people working on them. I'd imagine most Michelin star chefs can't raise cows.

Not defending him, but his fame comes from coming up with a killer idea for a game, not from actually coding it. Carmack did the bulk of the coding. Romero just gave Doom the concept that made it Doom. We can argue which is more important, and almost all of us would agree it's Carmack (which makes sense, he's a generational talent), but Doom wouldn't have been Doom without either.
