Tom "Doom" Hall and Brenda "Wizardry" Brathwaite team up to make a videogame


Yes, another Kickstarter-funded videogame project.

I'll tell you what you need to know first. Linux support is a stretch goal at 1.5 million dollars. The game gets greenlit one million.

Here's the page: An Old-School RPG by Brenda Brathwaite and Tom Hall!

Tom Hall worked on Doom (at ID Software) and on Anachronox (at Ion Storm). That means he also worked on Daikatana and Dominion, but I guess he doesn't want to advertise that . (Actually, the Kickstarter pitch sounds an awful lot like the prerelease hype for Anachronox). I'm not familiar with Brenda's career, but apparently she worked on Wizardry 8.

Please go do your part to bring this game to Linux.

Canceled two days ago. I guess I shouldn't have pointed out that this was the Daikatana team.
