8:20 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
GamePro has posted part 2 of its interview with id Software, the company behind the upcoming first-person shooter, . This time GamePro interviews id CEO Todd Hollenshead, Doom 3 Lead Designer Tim Willits, and id's Director of Business Development Marty Stratton.
Here's a clip from the interview:
GP: You've said in the past that everybody in the company was a big Doom fan and it was the "holy grail" product, where everybody gets to work on this legendary thing. Doesn't that make you guys nervous at all? To a certain extent, you're dealing with "The Doom Legacy."Interested in check out the entire interview? Be sure to follow the link below.
TW: Yeah, it's sorta like George Lucas working on The Phantom Menace. Hopefully, we'll do a better job. [laughs]
MS: It would be one thing if Doom or Doom II had released two years ago or whatever, but they're so far removed from each other. People have a warm fuzzy feeling from Doom, I guess -- or maybe a terrifying feeling -- but they have a good memory of Doom, and I think what we have to do is not necessarily try to copy that or make something exactly the same from a feeling perspective, but give them a new experience that is reminiscent of Doom -- they know that's an Arch-Vile or an Imp or whatever. But if you look at the Imp now from the Imp then...you ask somebody who didn't know: "Is that the same character?" No, of course not. They're so far removed from each other that if we really provide people with a scary, terrifying experience that is Doom 3, they're going to be happy and they're going to say, "That's a great experience. Maybe it's not that good as what I remember Doom to be," and it probably won't be, just because they're so far removed from each other.
