Mobile Version of Wolfenstein Planned15.11.2007 : 18:27
USA Today reports that id Software has announced "id Mobile", a new division of id with plans to develop mobile versions of its classic games Quake and Wolfenstein, as well as a sequel to the cellphone game hit, Doom RPG.
"We are operating on the assumption that mobile gaming has a potential for huge growth," says id co-founder John Carmack. "It's at a tipping point. Everybody has a phone, and almost every phone is powerful enough to do good games on it."The Mesquite, Texas, game maker is no mobile-game newcomer. Released two years ago, Doom RPG for cellphones has sold more than 1 million copies. Sales of last year's Orcs & Elves have topped 400,000. Both of those action games were co-developed by id with Fountainhead Entertainment, a company founded by Carmack's wife, Katherine Anna Kang. A former director of business development at id, she will now serve also as id Mobile's president.
They expect the id name to help draw the attention of potential creative talent to a sector of the industry that's often considered "the ghetto of game development," Carmack says. "It's going to be easier to attract more people to work for a project when they are actually working for id."
