Original veteran developers of one of the most beloved games of all time; DOOM, are reaching out for support.
John Romero and Adrian Carmack are lookg for around $700,000 ( which converts to£480,000) on Kickstarter to make a game called BLACKROOM!
The game is described as paying homage to the original Doom games, being "visceral, varied and violent". Romero and Carmack were two of the founders of iD, the developers behind the new and upcoming DOOM game. They had a hand in creating Wolfenstein, Quake and many other classic games we can all remember playing before graphics were realistic and 60 FPS was the norm.
The Kickstarter outlines that the virtual setting of the game will take the player through many environments. This includes Victorian mansions, wild west towns, and also Pirate ships! Boost items in game allow you to "hack" into these environments for extra fun, which keeps in line with the "virtual" setting of the game.
The game will also ship with tools to create your own maps and weapons on launch, adding an extra layer to the game. The game will be released in late 2018 for both Windows and Mac computers
