John Romero Is About To Make You His B..est Friend.

By Daavpuke, Posted 21 Oct 2010

Are you pumped for the new hit? Let’s hear you roar, for John Romero is back!

This time around, you’ll have to put your testosterone and adrenaline on a back burner though, because it might not be that necessary here. As the man responsible for games such as Quake, Doom (basically the whole FPS rise to fame) now is part of social game developer LOLapps; the blood might not be splashing around as you’d like.

After some ‘setbacks’ previous week, his new game Ravenwood Fair launched recently and is now open for business quite literally. Much like other social media applications, Ravenwood Fair revolves around collecting cute items, coins and buying new things to virtually place around your screen and annoy/show off to your friends. You’ll therefore also be able to go visit your friends’ fairs as you build your own and keep your virtual residents safe ad content. And we all want to play with a raccoon in a dress, don't we? Sure we do!

At the very least, Ravenwood Fair looks more complex than the plethora of social ‘games’ where clicking a button is your main quest. Even though its game mechanics are generally a cluster borrowed from other popular applications, such as FarmVille or FrontierVille.

Romero hopes to one day be known for games other than Quake or Doom, he told VentureBeat. We promise this is the last time we’ll mention it; from now on it’s all Daikatana and cellphone games in the reference sheet.

In any case, feel free to try your hand at some social simulation fun; if you’re not afraid to have your information ‘leaked’ at least. That’s right, Facebook applications breach your privacy (via Wall Street Journal).

Shocking; I know.
