This Podcast episode is DOOMed πŸ”₯πŸŒ‹πŸ˜ˆπŸ§ŸπŸ•―πŸ‘Ώβ˜ πŸ‘ΉπŸ¦Ή I had the chance to talk to John Romero, the inventor of DOOM, Wolfenstein and Commander Keen and founder of id Software about:

  • Developing games in the early 90s and how they developed DOOM in a crazy small team
  • Developing games in 2021 and how it’s still possible to develop games with only a single person team
  • The crazy amounts of money they made with DOOM πŸ€‘πŸ’ΆπŸ€‘
  • The crazy amounts of energy drinks they consumed
  • Why not he would not start developing a game engine again

Thanks a lot John! Was really fun talking to you.
