id Software working on iPhone game


Video game development god John Carmack and the software company he co-founded, id Software, says that they will be working on a game for the iPhone.

In an interview with Forbes, Carmack says “we wanted to do something for the iPhone, but we just didn’t have the scheduling or the resources available…I really regret not having something at launch.”

“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.”

Power wise, Carmack doesn’t sound so worried about the iPhone, comparing it’s power to a PS2 or Xbox, saying that it’s the same generation as those consoles power-wise and adding that “the graphics are a little lower but the RAM is a lot higher.”
