Paul Jaquays Departs id

Paul Jaquays updated his .plan file, the id Software designer announcing he is departing the company, almost five years to the day after he joined them. Admitting his "heart just isn’t in it any more," when it comes to working on id's trademark shooters, Paul goes on to announce that he's taken a position at Ensemble Studios, home to another id Software alumnus, Sandy Petersen. He caps off the update with a postscript: "… and don’t worry about Doom, the guys who have been doing all the really cool stuff for the game are still busting their chops hard as ever on it."

It's a good thing that he realized his being there and feeling that way may have harmed the game, quite a noble thing to do since he was making $400k per year. I could also understand if he felt a little uncomfortable with some of the content going into Doom, since he's Christian and all. Although Doom is kind of a pro-christian game, what with all the Daemon killing.
