A huge "thank you," as always, to John Romero. John has always been willing to give me as much time as I need to ask all of my questions, and never fails to give detailed answers and tell fantastic stories. Thank you also to Limited Run Games co-founder Doug Bogart and Doom community member "dew" for agreeing to interviews that offered a look at Sigil's development through two additional lenses. Last but not least, thank you to Shacknews CEO and editor-in-chief Asif Khan for editing assistance, and for his steadfast support of and belief in long-form content.
