Thanks so much for inviting me! I really enjoyed it, particularly all the conversation afterwards. We could have gone on for hours! It was a lot of fun. Thanks @Entelect!

We surprised our people globally, during our tech conference, DevDay, by having the legendary @romero come and give us a talk. John was kind enough to hang around with us afterwards, answering many of our people's questions. Thanks, @romerogamesltd from all of us @Entelect John!

Today is #IndigenousPeoplesDay Earlier this year I spoke to the godfather of the FPS genre @romero about how his Native American roots may have helped inspire @DOOM He also shared his thoughts on how the industry can do more to avoid harmful stereotypes

In celebration of Indigenous Peoples' Day, perhaps play some games by Indigenous game devs. I am proud of my heritage and the many contributions of Indigenous creators. #yaqui #cherokee #gamedev

These were team shirts. We had both "Wrote It" shirts and these. Some may have made it out, but they were created for the team.

@romero from what I understand this shirt for Doom is a promo. Is this accurate?

Sept 18: On this day in 1992, Spear of Destiny was released. It was a prequel to Wolfenstein 3-D. There are multiple boxes out there, but the one with the holographic print title was the only one we approved.

I made this remake while creating Quake, and it was never released to my knowledge. I only released the screenshots, and they came with a text file that explained it.
