John Romero, co-founder of id Software and co-creator of popular gaming titles such as DOOM and Quake has a nice article on his blog about the impact that NEXTSTEP had on idís game development. He kindly gave a link to the forums here.

Neat article by Mr. Romero, and a shout out and link to this site to boot.

Congrats to everyone who made, and continue to make, this site a great resource for all things NeXT.

Just saw this aswell, nice one.
It'd be interesting to see how many hits the site gets through that article.

Man, I remember playing DOOM on the company LAN. Great memories.

Wow. What a bump.
That was worth the read. I'll be forwarding it on as well.

So Quake was developed on NeXTSTEP as well? How come I have never seen a version of Quake for NeXTSTEP?
