Last week Doom co-founder John Romero teased an announcement for a new game and now it has been announced. Romero will be teaming up with id Software co-founder, Adrian Carmack on a new FPS which will be called Blackroom. The game is expected to offer many different environments and some pretty intense FPS action.
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.
The game is a return to fast, violent and masterful play on the PC. In BLACKROOM, you reign supreme in a variety of multiplayer modes, including co-op, 1-on-1 deathmatch and free-for-all arena in a motley mix of locations including hardcore military sims, hellish infernos and interstellar space. If you prefer a single-player experience, delve into an intense 10+ hour campaign, spanning wildly varied environments, from ruined Victorian mansions to Wild West ghost towns to treacherous pirate galleons and beyond.
The game is being developed by Night Work Games in Ireland, which is a subsidiary of Romero Games. It is unclear how many people will be working on Blackroom, but we do know that Romero himself will be designing all of the levels and Carmack will be heading up the art team.
Funding for the game has started on Kickstarter, which it has already raised over $80,000 in its first 24 hours. The team is looking to raise $700,000 to make Blackroom a reality.
