John Romero and Adrian Carmack (no relation to John) have launched a Kickstarter campaign
for a new first-person shooter called Blackroom, an "action-packed FPS set in a holographic simulation gone rogue." As a duo who helped create and shape classic shooters like Doom and Quake, Blackroom is being described using all the right old school words and phrases. Words and phrases like classic, violent, weaponised, circle-strafe, and rocket jump make it sound like one of the classic games that the pair worked on in the '90s.
John Romero and fellow id Software co-founder Adrian Carmack proudly announce BLACKROOM™, a visceral, varied and violent shooter that harkens back to classic FPS play with a mixture of exploration, speed, and intense, weaponized combat. Use fast, skillful movement to dodge enemy attacks, circle-strafe your foes, and rule the air as you rocket jump in the single- and multiplayer modes. BLACKROOM launches with unique multiplayer maps and robust modding support for the community to make diabolical creations of their own design - Coming Winter 2018 to WIN and MAC!
The duo is asking for $750,000 USD to fund development.
