Hardcore Retro - Keen Dreams | Hardcore Droid

Hardcore Droid's Travis Fahs:
"The Early Days of id Software.

PC gaming history is littered with tales of bedroom companies that rose from nowhere, and nerdy teenagers who became overnight successes, but the PC’s greatest tech gurus, id Software had no such story. Their origin was a messy one; a cesarean birth that saw them struggle to gain their independence from a company that simply wasn’t ready for them. For one crazy year, id Software produced more than a dozen games for two different publishers before finally getting to stand on their own two feet." (Android, Commander Keen, Dev, iD Software, PC, Retro)
