    Anybody who has played a computer game in the last 19 years should know who id software is. For those of you who don’t, they are the studio behind such landmark games as Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein. A posting at gamasutra.com reveals the company is currently looking for game programmers to help develop mobile games for the Android platform. If the demo of their game “Rage” running on the iPhone is any indication of what we can expect from them on Android, then this is something to be very excited about.

    I love their Commander Keen games. Still play them in a DOS window under Windows XP and 7. I hope these are ported over.

    I can still remember playing Wolf3D viewing through the smallest window size because my first computer was barely fast enough to play it :)

    Mein Leiben!

    Seriously I have no idea what you guys are talking about! LOL

    Although I have been known to play Doom in DosBox as long ago as last night. It's pretty cool that you can now download these old dos games for free. Got the whole Doom series a year ago and funny how the maps come back fast from dusty old memory.

    Yeah my Droid will sport some ID software. dancedroid
