"When first entering the two story office building where id Software is currently headquartered... you are greeted by a huge DOOM logo, multiple pinball machines, and lots of awards blanketing the walls. Right behind id's secretary, Donna Jackson, you will find a room holding a original DOOM figure sculpted by id years ago. The id trophy shelf also located in the lobby, consists of various game boxes and awards id has won over the years."

"These are pictures taken on November 11, 1999 in the CAVE at NCSA where we were testing out VMD (Visual Molecular Dynamics) the molecular visualization software that I develop at the Beckman Institute. After we all played with VMD for a while, we spontaneously realized that we should be taking pictures of it with Kirby's digital camera since we didn't have any pictures of VMD in the CAVE yet. (we had already been running it for an hour, so the picture taking was the last thing we did.) Once we got tired of playing with VMD, we decided to relax with some CAVE Quake :-)"

The Coven was an independent computer games developer with its roots in the Doom and Quake communities. Originally founded by John "Gestalt" Bye in late 1996, The Coven worked on a free Doom II add-on before moving on to Quake and going commercial in the summer of 1997. The Coven was closed in the winter of 1999, and all their work is now available for free.
