More on New id Games

As a follow-up to the earlier terse press release about new games from id Software being announced at next month's QuakeCon event (story), we received another, slightly less cryptic announcement specifying that a press conference will be held on Friday August 10, 2:00 PM CDT (3:00 PM EDT), to be followed by a keynote address by John Carmack. Here's the deal, again in AOL-friendly all-caps:
ID SOFTWARE PRESS CONFERENCE AT QUAKECON 2001

DATE: FRIDAY, AUG. 10
TIME: 2 P.M.
LOCATION: THE MESQUITE CONVENTION CENTER/HAMPTON INN & SUITES -- MESQUITE, TEXAS

You're all off the mark.

Carmack figured out a way to merge polygons with reality. But only so he could optionally turn off that giant ball of fire in the sky.

'bad fire ... bad fire ... bad fire burn my skin ... away fire!'
