Romero & Carmack the id Software co-founders have launched a kickstarter project called Blackroom. The Blackroom is a first person shooting game described as “Master fast, skillful movement with rocket jumping, strafe jumping and circle strafing. Wield intricately balanced weapons where each one has a specific use and does the damage that makes you feel . Challenge yourself with expert abstract level design, invented and perfected by John Romero and fully realized by Adrian Carmack’s dark and unique style. Master six built-in multiplayer maps, as well as countless maps created by the community. In BLACKROOM, Romero is designing every level.”
In the single player campaign you will be playing as a HOXAR engineer sent on an investigation, HOXAR is a company that created a technology that allows you to be anywhere at any time by creating a life size holographic world all inside a giant blackroom.
Romero & Carmack said they didn’t want to make a mainstream action FPS game, the Blackroom is entirely a new experience for FPS game lovers. It allows you to change your environment from within the game with the help of a device called Boxel and it extends your experience with full mod support and dedicated servers.
