John Romero’s SIGIL will get smacked with a delay
SIGIL, the unofficial fifth episode for the 1993 basic Doom, has been hit with a delay. Introduced late final 12 months, John Romero (famed designer from ID Software program) got down to create a follow-up to the legendary title in a fashion solely he might accomplish. Popping out as a free mod with some paid choices for tremendous followers, the discharge had me excited to return to the depths of Hell and see these basic enemies once more. Sadly, we’ll all want to attend only a bit longer for Hell to return.
In a fast replace on his private weblog, Romero writes, “There have been a number of snags in manufacturing attempting to ensure every thing is top-notch for followers! I simply needed to let everybody who bought both the Huge Field or the Beast Field know that it’s now trying like it’s going to ship someday in April.” To ensure nobody will get a headstart on the mod, the free model has additionally been pushed again.
To me, this reads extra like a manufacturing delay than a top quality concern. Whereas I might like to have the mod out first, I can perceive wanting to provide folks which are paying for it an opportunity to expertise Romero’s return to basic FPS design with out spoilers. If this ensures the ultimate product is nicely well worth the wait, then I am all for it. We do not want one other Daikatana on our fingers.
