Ideas from the Deep rises from the deep

"Story in a game is like a story in a porn movie. It's
expected to be there, but it's not that important."
John Carmack

Id Software have been dormant for quite a while now, and their latest titles Doom 3 and Quake 4 were mediocre as best. With Carmack seemingly more interested in rocket science and mobile games, the future of the company have been looking a bit towards the gloomy edge.

But now their CEO, Todd Hollenshead, have gone out and shed some more light on their current situation, in a recent interview over at Next-gen.com. Apperantly, John Carmack is working on a brand new shooter that is not based on any previous IP.

The engine is described as 'really unfettering the ability of artists to go absolutely nuts', and that they're going to compete with Epic on the middleware market. Well, don't let me summarize everything for you... head over to the Next-gen site and read the interview for yourself!
