id software going iPhone

The PC Gamer's patron saint of sunken-chested albino nerds, Mr. John Carmack, is now mulling over a title for the iPhone.

"We have a title we want to develop exclusively for iPhone," he says. "I'm not announcing anything specifically, but it would be a graphical tour de force."

Anna Kang, president of id Mobile, adds "it would not be a new IP," meaning the game would have roots in id's existing catalog, which includes the "Doom, "Quake" and "Wolfenstein" franchises.

An iPhone remake of the Doom RPG would be great: it really was one of the best games I ever played on my cell phones. More likely is some sort of iPhone port of id mobile's terrible Orcs and Elves series. How bland are those games? The title is not self-parodying, which pretty much says all you need to know.
