Hot off the presses today is the Kickstarter project reveal of BLACKROOM, a visceral, action-packed FPS set in a holographic simulation gone rogue. The game has a rough release date of Winter 2018 for the PC.
It comes from the co-creator of Doom and Quake, John Romero, along with fellow id Software founder, Adrian Carmack, who plan to deliver “a new FPS that harkens back to classic shooter gameplay.”
BLACKROOM is the FPS you have been waiting for: a return to fast, violent and masterful play on the PC. In BLACKROOM, you reign supreme in a variety of multiplayer modes, including co-op, 1-on-1 deathmatch and free-for-all arena in a motley mix of locations including hardcore military sims, hellish infernos and interstellar space. If you prefer a single-player experience, delve into an intense 10+ hour campaign, spanning wildly varied environments, from ruined Victorian mansions to Wild West ghost towns to treacherous pirate galleons and beyond.
Here is a lovely chart showcasing all the pledges:

How much do you think is enough to back this project. Does BLACKROOM have the chance to fill the void there is today in “classic” arena shooter gameplay?
