They've got more projects in the works than they ever have, yet with so little to show at QuakeCon - the gamer-created event named after their own shooter series - one might think that it's at least partially smoke and mirrors. But after hearing the hours-long talk by id's technical director John Carmack and getting to sit down to talk with id co-founder Tim Willits, it's really just a timing issue.
My time spent with the upcoming Wolfenstein from Raven Software was enlightening. They're doing a great job putting together a World War II shooter that isn't a rehash of the dozen we've already seen so far, and the fantastical and supernatural elements in the original game series is being put to excellent use in the new game. It's not going to revolutionize the industry, but it's shaping up very well."
