John Romero and Adrian Carmack launch a kickstarter campaign… and cancel it!

John Romero and Adrian Carmack have revealed last monday the name of the project they were working on: BLACKROOM.

They’ve started last Monday a kickstarter campaign based on the concept of a fast multiplayer first-person shooter game taking place in a holographic world, using the Unreal Engine 4. But without any live gameplay demo to show that concept in action, their campaign was quite ill-fated, as they were asking for 700.000 dollars – which is quite realistic for the development of a game during several months in a small team, but a very high amount when you have only some ideas and concepts. But as they received only more than 100k after some days, and the trend was not very good, they decided to stop the campaign and work on a demo of the game before restarting it. Good luck to them!
