Abandonware DOS title


Quake is a first-person shooter (FPS) video game developed by id Software and released in 1996. It is the successor to id Software's immensely popular "Doom" series and is known for its groundbreaking 3D graphics, fast-paced gameplay, and multiplayer capabilities. The game was created by a team led by John Carmack and John Romero, two of the co-founders of id Software.
In Quake, players assume the role of a nameless protagonist known as the Ranger, who is tasked with stopping an invasion of monsters and otherworldly creatures unleashed by an entity known as Quake. The game is set in a dark and atmospheric fantasy world filled with medieval castles, dungeons, and other gothic environments.

Quake review

Computer Gaming World (1996): "Although it's not perfect, QUAKE excels at pure pulse-pounding action, and is more fun than I've ever had on a computer. It's the most immersive “visceral reality” experience out now. I'm not alone in thinking this: The overwhelming majority of my friends quickly succumbed to QUAKE's addictiveness, particularly after trying DeathMatch and mouselook. The fast-growing pool of playmates, servers and add-ons will ensure that QUAKE stays at the top of my playlist, and the playlists of thousands of other gamers, for a long time."

Retro gamer collector's corner:

There were two official expansion packs released for Quake: Scourge of Armagon and Dissolution of Eternity. An unofficial third expansion pack, Abyss of Pandemonium, was developed by the Impel Development Team, published by Perfect Publishing, and released on April 14, 1998. An authorized expansion pack, Q!ZONE was developed and published by WizardWorks, and released in 1996. An authorized level editor, Deathmatch Maker was developed by Virtus Corporation and published by Macmillan Digital Publishing in 1997.
