Then, in a burst, everyone was laughing, even the generally stoic John Carmack, who not only laughed but applauded. Commander Keen was on board. Where he would take them, they hardly knew. The gamers weren’t just Softdisk guys anymore, they were, as they called themselves, the IFD guys, co-owners of Ideas from the Deep. Softdisk, as a result, took on an even greater pallor. But it was a day job, a job they all needed since there was no real money coming in yet and no guarantee that it would come in at all.

The boom of the recent years, he told them, was coming to a close.
