First screenshots of Doom III

At Mac World in Japan, John Carmack showed first pictures of the indirect Quake 3 Arena successor called Doom III. The pictures come from the game engine of the game and were shown with a GeForce 3 based graphics card and show some monsters that will appear in the game.

We've been doing hacks and tricks for years, but now we'll be able to do things we've been wanting to do for a long time, 'Carmack said.' For instance, every light has its own highlight and every surface casts a shadow, like in the real world. Everything can behave the same now and we can apply effects for every pixel. '

During the eye-popping demo, what was shown was in actual game code and being done in real-time, he added.' We're very excited about the quality we're getting, 'Carmack added.' This is a wonderful time to be in graphics and the GeForce 3 is the most exciting thing we've had to work with in years. '
