Rage: “Legacy of id” video offers bite-sized history lesson on Doom's creators

Impressive footage shown off alongside impressive haircuts

TODO alt text

Rage is id Software's first original FPS since Quake’s 1996 release, and the company wants to make sure you know it’s a pretty big deal. The game's first behind-the-scenes promo video, “Legacy of id,” spares no hagiographical detail in establishing Carmack and company’s rightful place in gaming history. However, any excesses of ego on id's part are tempered by a generous complement of historical material, including a wealth of photos from the embarrassing days of young superstar programmers with lustrous manes and coke-bottle frames. Also, there's lots of Rage footage, which is cool.
