Co-founders of ID Software Re-unite For Blackroom

By   /   Apr 26, 2016

Last week we reported that John Romero is hinting at a secret FPS. Now the legendary designer and co-founder of ID Software has announced that he’s teamed up with Adrian Carmack, another co-founder of ID Software, for a kickstarter project called Blackroom, an FPS shooter.

Blackroom is to be the brain child of two people who made FPS genre what it is today. The game is aiming to go back to the FPS genre’s roots with an emphasis on speed and combat.

The kickstarter page describes the game:

Blackroom is the FPS you have been waiting for: a return to fast, violent and masterful play on the PC. In Blackroom you reign supreme in a variety of multiplayer modes including co-op, 1-on-1 deathmatch and free-for-all arena in a motley mix of locations including hardcore military sims, hellish infernos and interstellar space. If you prefer a single-player experience delve into an intense 10+ hour campaign spanning wildly varied environments from ruined Victorian mansions to Wild West ghost towns to treacherous pirate galleons and beyond.

Romero also shared his thoughts about how great it is to re-unite with Adrian Carmack saying “It is incredible to work with Adrian again. We are developing the exactly the type of game we think a lot of shooter fans want. It is the type of shooter we are known for and the type of game we love to play ourselves. It is a skillful shooter from movement to weapon and map mastery.”

The kickstarter campaign requires $700,000 and 31 days are left to raise it. If you are interested in backing this project you can start donating on Blackroom’s official kickstarter page. The game is currently to be released on PC in 2018.
