" Quetoo is multiplayer-only. There is no single-player or offline gameplay mode. If you have no Internet and no friends, Quetoo might not be for you."

I thought I saw someone say they're distributing at least one commercial Quake 2 level.

I really like Quake 2 and had a ball playing it online back in the 90's, but why don't they just create their own game? I think saying "Quake 2 inspired" is an understatement here.

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'.

Completely agree with you Dutch. Get a new name, add your own flavor to the game and maybe upload a video without any Quake 2 maps in it. I normally like to support any project people are working on, but this doesn't sit well with me.
