Fun fact: While still employed at the place that canceled his massively multiplayer online game, developer John Romero consulted with LOLapps to make a Facebook game called Ravenwood Fair.
If you've been following the news, you'd know that Facebook turned off LOLapps in the wake of a privacy breach scandal uncovered by the Wall Street Journal. According to VentureBeat, this means John Romero's new game is officially delayed until LOLapps sorts out its privacy issues.
Ravenwood Fair is a Facebook social game where players build thriving Renaissance fairs in a fairy tale forest filled with mythical monsters that need ass-kicking. Think FrontierVille meets Sim City.
It's a far cry from Doom or Quake, but in his interview with VentureBeat, it sounds like Romero sees social games as a natural evolution for game developers. They are called "games," right?
