Doom 3 Interviews
12:34 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Doomworld has posted a huge article which discusses id Software's title in early development, Doom 3. This six-page round table asks many questions of no fewer than eight 'big names' in the Doom world, including John Romero (ex-Id employee who worked on the original Doom). They cover a variety of topics about what the game should - and shouldn't - be. Here's a clip:

Should id Software incorporate the ideas of its fanbase when constructing this new DOOM?

John Romero:

Hmm. I wouldn't. I would stick strictly to the canon of the DOOM franchise and very
carefully add elements that add to the integrity of the series. It's all about capturing
the old magic and presenting the same feeling and emotion of the original. Listening
to everyone else just provides more noise to muddle the intense design process -- it
will *not* be easy trying to make a game that captures the original essence of DOOM
and the less distractions, the better.

With many of id's original members who worked on Doom now gone from the company, it will be interesting to see how this game turns out. The article is definitely a good read for those excited about this game. id has noted several times in the past that Doom 3 will come to the Mac, but only for users running Mac OS X. Since it should be at least a year or two before Doom 3's release, this may not be a problem for many gamers.
