Default Serious Doom 4

This is probably old news to everyone but I had no idea that Croteam almost ended up making Doom 4. I never caught any references to Doom in Sam 3 aside from the Mancubus. It wasn't until seeing this screenshot that I realized the connection between Barons and Khnums, Canned Cain and Doomguy, and gunners/former sergeants/former humans.

It might have been cool to see what Croteam would have done with the franchise but if it ended up being very similar to Sam 3, then I don't think that would have been a good direction for Doom. In spite of the fact that I really enjoyed Sam 3, I don't really feel like the movement and the mechanics that got added/taken away would have been suitable. It might have still been a great game but I think the Doom 4 that we ended up getting was a nice homage to classic Doom while still being really fun.

I'm curious now if the name Canned Cain came from the fact that he and the rest of the project were canned after id decided to make Doom 4 themselves.

Yeah, it's an old news and it was already discussed somewhere else in the forums...

It's still cool to see these things side by side. I'm glad Croteam were able to learn from the experience and used the assets they created towards Serious Sam 3.

...I had no idea Croteam was tasked with creating Doom 4...

What do I have to do in order to restore my honor?

I've wonder - will this eventual Doom 4, made by CT, would run by SE3 or id tech engine?

If Croteam had gotten the job it would seem likely they'd use the newest version of Serious Engine at that time. They've worked with this technology since before the turn of the millennium and to learn a whole new engine for one project makes little sense.

I just can't imagine

"CroTeam presents...
...an id Software game...
...powered by...
...SERIOUS ENGINE 3...
...DooM 4..."

It would be like a living dream for both the CT fans and CT themselves.
