Doom, Ultima Creators Talk Space at QuakeCon

QuakeCon, the annual LAN party and celebration of “peace, love and rockets” inspired by id Software’s first-person shooters, kicked off Thursday in Dallas.

Emphasis on the rockets.

In keeping with tradition, id Software co-founder and Doom lead programmer John Carmack will address the computer-toting QuakeCon masses with a keynote speech Thursday evening. Immediately following, Carmack will share the stage with fellow Texan Richard Garriott, creator of the classic Ultima role-playing games.

They won’t be discussing videogames. Instead, they’ll talk about their shared enthusiasm for space travel. (Culture, John Carmack, Richard Garriott)
