Id Software (Doom, Quake) and Fountainhead Entertainment (Doom RPG, Orcs & Elves) have announced they have joined to create a new division of id Software, id Mobile.

The new division will develop games for cell phones, as well as for both the Nintendo DS and PSP, and will be headed up by Fountainhead founder Katherine Anna Kang, who was formerly director of business development at id.

When Gamasutra recently spoke to Kang, she expressed enthusiasm for expanding Fountainhead's mobile development work onto other portable platforms, as she and her husband, id's John Carmack, did with the recent Orcs & Elves, the 2006 Interactive Achievement Awards Mobile Game of the Year winner which was recently released on DS.

Id co-founder John Carmack said in a statement that "worldwide, mobile gaming has the potential to eclipse conventional gaming platforms,” and said the platforms were a perfect place to "leverage the historic strengths of our company" where "technical and design virtuosity" were rewarded.

Added Kang, “Id Software is known for doing things that don’t conform to the status-quo and as a result, they’ve led the gaming industry forward through their original ideas, technical prowess and the uncanny ability to see into the future; with id Mobile, that tradition continues. id Mobile is poised to shake up the emerging mobile gaming space.”
