I feel like they'd immediately garner an audience if they created something that was inspired Quake 2 but also a big part of new ideas and art style. This to me just looks like an HD remake, which is a bit odd if they're trying to market it on Steam.
If this is truly free to play, then that's cool, but free to play today usually means micro-transactions and the like.
That was my first impression too, but after reading their webpage a bit, it looks like it just kind of evolved on its own that way...it started as a Q2 engine in the interest of increasing performance, it looks like.
Still though, I'd ditch the name and change up the assets a bit before promoting it as anything other than 'Q2 reborn'.
