Id Software co-founder and CTO John Carmack has hinted in recent months about a "secret" project that was happening in parallel with his own efforts to bring his company's "classic" titles to the iPhone. That project was unveiled Wednesday: Doom Resurrection.
Due for release in a month or so at a price still to be determined, Doom Resurrection isn't another retread of a classic Doom game. It's a completely new effort, a first-person shooter designed exclusively for the iPhone and iPod touch. The game uses assets originally developed for Doom 3, Id Software's 2005 reboot of the legendary first-person shooter franchise.
