John Romero has just revealed the new first-person shooter he is making alongside Adrian Carmack, called BLACKROOM. BLACKROOM is described as a visceral, varied and violent shooter that harkens back to classic FPS play with a mixture of exploration, speed, and intense, weaponized combat.
In BLACKROOM, players will be able to use fast, skillful movement to dodge enemy attacks, circle-strafe your foes, and rule the air as they rocket jump in the single- and multiplayer modes.
The game will launch with unique multiplayer maps, as well as robust modding support for the community to make creations of their own design.
Night Work Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for BLACKROOM and aims to raise $700K in the next 32 days.
BLACKROOM will be coming to the PC in Winter 2018, will feature a single-player campaign that will last around 10 Hours, will feature three Multiplayer modes (Co-op, 1-on-1 Deathmatch and Arena), will have support for both mods and dedicated servers, and will pack a new Soundtrack by acclaimed metal guitarist George Lynch.
Unfortunately, the game is in really early development stage, and there is no gameplay footage available for it yet. And to be honest, this was to be expected as the team aims for a 2018 release.
Nevertheless, there is a Kickstarter video featuring John Romero, explaining the concept of BLACKROOM, that can be viewed below.
