Romero's Loot Drop launching 'Cloudforest Exploration' this summer on Facebook
It's not quite blasting demons on one of Mars' moons, but John Romero's next game does have a totally sweet name: Cloudforest Exploration. Romero's studio, Loot Drop, officially announced the project this morning -- the first of at least two social games to be released in partnership with publisher RockYou. Described simply as "an adventure and exploration Facebook game," Cloudforest is scheduled to be released on the service this summer.

"Loot Drop is a natural fit with our design-driven studio culture and with our commitment to developing and publishing the best social games in the world," RockYou senior VP of games Jonathan Knight said in the announcement. The publisher will also collaborate with Loot Drop on a second social game.

"[RockYou] support our creative freedom as we bring innovation to the story-driven adventure genre with Cloudforest Expedition," said Romero, who is joined by Brenda Brathwaite at Loot Drop. "Extending the relationship with a second game makes sense, and we're excited to reveal more details of our projects" -- just, not right now.
