Game Information

Quake is a 1996 first-person shooter developed by id Software and published by GT Interactive and is the first game in the Quake series. Players control Ranger, who was sent into a portal in order to stop an enemy codenamed 'Quake'. The government had been experimenting with teleportation technology and developed a working prototype called a Slipgate, which Quake compromised by connecting it with its own teleportation system, using it to send death squads to our dimension to test the martial capabilities of humanity. After passing through the Slipgate, Ranger must collect four magic runes from four dimensions of Quake, which are the key to stopping the enemy and ending the invasion of Earth.

The successor to id Software's Doom series, Quake built upon the technology and gameplay of its predecessor. It was critically acclaimed and also had an impact on the speedrunning community. Since release, there have been multiple expansion packs (Scourge of Armagon, Dissolution of Eternity, Abyss of Pandemonium, and Dimension of the Past), a port of its engine (VQuake), and multiple updates (QuakeWorld, GLQuake, and WinQuake).
