The Twitch-streamed event, announced on social media late last week by Romero, will take place on Doom's anniversary of December 10
Carmack and Romero will discuss the game and its legacy with moderator and Rocket Jump author David L. Craddock
But "the two Johns" say that reports of their falling out have been exaggerated over the years
(Update: Romero takes issue with this story in his recent memoir, writing that the time-tracking story actually took place at Cygnus Studios. "Carmack never programmed anything on my computer, a fact I've confirmed with him, nor did he give me a list of my hours," Romero wrote. "Rather, he accused me of not being fully focused on Quake.")
Carmack left Meta with a frustration-filled departure message and now puts his professional time into AGI startup Keen Technologies.
In recent years, the Romero Games label has played host to Sigil, a Doom WAD file marketed as "the unofficial fifth episode" of the game (Sigil II will launch on December 10)
Romero also uses the book to accuse other writers over the years of playing up the "animosity" between the pair because "it makes for a better story."
As Carmack stated in a 2022 episode of Lex Fridman’s podcast
Romero was clear in a recent Reddit AMA
