Ideas of the deep? Is that what it stands for?
No, Id is a part of your personality. Fruedian mumbo jumbo....
Actually, I believe that Q may be right. Lane Roathe, Tom Hall, and John Romero founded a game company named Ideas from the Deep
(I don't know if Carmack was involved or not). At least some sources on google say that Ideas from the Deep
is where they came up with the name id software
- although maybe now the name just refers to the "id" from psychology.
I have fond memories of playing their Softdisk games on my Apple IIGS - before there was Wolfenstein 3D or Commander Keen, I played their Dark Designs RPG series, Rescue Rover, and Legend of the Star Axe.This comment was edited on Mar 27, 01:14.
