Carmack Interviewed
12:58 PM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Kikizo Games has posted the results a short interview with John Carmack of id Software to ring in the new year. Probably best known as the creator of the Doom series, Carmack has yet to rest on his laurels, and continues to make titles for the gaming community.

One of his current projects includes a Doom RPG for the cellphone market, and he notes the high points of this title:

Doom RPG brought together a lot of positive traits - the turn based RPG play could be done one-handed with the phone, it could still leverage some of the immersion of 3D graphics with the smooth sliding between positions, we could borrow a lot of existing media from the original game, and it could be done at about the same time the Doom movie would be released, which we weren't able to do with any major PC / console title.
In a nod to the Mac gaming community, he adds that id will continue to support a multitude of gaming markets, including the Mac platform.

Also discussed in the interview are his thoughts on the Doom movie, id's future plans, and the challenges of designing a cellphone game.
