Forum member Bloodshot has been showing off his latest Quake project recently called Quake 1.5. With Quake 1.5, Bloodshot has been developing some awesome looking new weapon models (Which you can see right here!) for use in Quake! Bloodshot does give us all a quick snippet into what he's going for with this project.
The goal is to create a sort of medium between the Quake weapons with the more animated Quake 2 design approach, along with some inspiration from Duke3D
Unfortunately, these models aren't available for download just yet. However, you can watch a couple videos below of the weapons in action!
For anyone out there that is still in need of a copy of Quake, or if you want a DRM free version of it (aka, not on steam), gog.com has finally put the game up for purchase!
However, the catch here is that... wait this isn't a catch, you actually get the main game and both expansion packs for $9.99! While on steam, Quake alone is that price. Click here to purchase now!
But wait, there's more! Before you get hasty with purchasing just Quake, Doom was also released. So, it's important to remember that if you buy all 3 games, Quake: The Offering, Doom + Final Doom, and The Ultimate Doom, you get an automatic 33% off, bringing your total for all of it to $17.31. If this sounds like a deal for you, hurry because it only lasts till September 2nd!
Forum member Seven has been hard at work on a new version of of his project for Quake called Small Mod Compilation (SMC). Now, we can all enjoy the fruits of his labor with a brand new release in version 5.30!
SMC is exactly as it's name suggest; a large collection of fun mods to add to Quake and make it play differently and feel fresh! This new release features blood puddles beneath killed enemies, a personal teleporter (which you can check out in a video below) and it even adds new monsters to Quake which doubles the roster of the original game!
The Func Messageboard community has put together and released yet another map jam for your quaking pleasure. This is called Fire and Brimstone and looks to have 13 maps with lava, jagged rocks, castles, Chthon and whatever other hellish things the authors have in store for you.
