"Jim Dose previously worked on games like Rise Of The Triad, Duke Nukem 3D, Sin and Heavy Metal FAKK 2. He's done everything from sound programming to game logic and animation. His work on the skeletal animation system for FAKK 2 was excellent and now he's bringing that same level of professionalism to id. For Doom [3], Jim Dose is handling game logic, the animation system, scripting, and who knows what else.."
