id Software (UACORP7-DOM)
3819 Towne Crossing Blvd #222
Mesquite, TX 75150 US
Domain Name: UA-CORP.COM
The domain name echoes a setting element from the original Doom game:
He and his body cast were shipped to Pearl Harbor, while you were transferred to Mars, home of the Union Aerospace Corporation.
The UAC is a multi-planetary conglomerate with radioactive waste facilities on Mars and its two moons, Phobos and Deimos. With no action for fifty million miles, your day consisted of suckin’ dust and watchin’ restricted flicks in the rec room.
For the last four years the military, UAC’s biggest supplier, has used the remote facilities on Phobos and Deimos to conduct various secret projects, including research on inter-dimensional space travel.
There’s a placeholder site up at UA-Corp.com which indicates content will be added at some later date; by registering a domain name for what was previously a minor part of the backstory, it would seem that id is putting far more effort into creating a believable game environment this time around.
UPDATE: Further mention of Doom’s setting was made on the Quake3World forums: id level designer Paul Jaquays indicated in a thread on particle effects that the game will take place, at least in part, on Mars. This differs from the original game, which took place on the Martian moons of Phobos and Deimos (and later, Hell). Thanks to 51|Buddha for the heads up.
