The Quake 1 Guide - Game Info
Quake linux game was the first in id Software's successful series, following up on the success of Doom and Dooms. Played from a first-person perspective, the game's 3D engine was revolutionary and licensed for countless other games. The game was written in a code that allowed users to make extensive modifications, and basically ignited the creation of an entire online community.
The first version of Quake was released publicly on February 24, 1996, in the form of a program called "qtest". It was described as a technology demo, limited in maps, monsters, and other gameplay elements, but the game's multiplayer support caused Quake servers to spring up everywhere overnight.
The first official shareware version of Quake was released on June 24, 1996. The shareware contained the first of Quake's four "episodes", containing eight levels. The full version was released in August 1996, and the rest, as they say, is history.
From the orginal Quake manual:
You get the phone call at 4 a.m. By 5:30 you're in the secret installation. The commander explains tersely, "It's about the Slipgate device. Once we perfect these, we'll be able to use them to transport people and cargo from one place to another instantly.
"An enemy codenamed Quake, is using his own slipgates to insert death squads inside our bases to kill, steal, and kidnap...
"The hell of it is we have no idea where he's from. Our top scientists think Quake's not from Earth, but another dimension. They say Quake's preparing to unleash his real army, whatever that is.
"You're our best man. This is Operation Counterstrike and you're in charge. Find Quake, and stop him ... or it ... You have full authority to requisition anything you need. If the eggheads are right, all our lives are expendable.."
While scouting the neighborhood, you hear shots back at the base Damn, that Quake bastard works fast! He heard about Operation Counterstrike, and hit first. Racing back, you see the place is overrun. You are almost certainly the only survivor. Operation Counterstrike is over. Except for you.
You know that the heart of the installation holds a slipgate. Since Quake's killers came through, it is still set to his dimension. You can use it to get loose in his hometown. Maybe you can get to the asshole personally. You pump a round into your shotgun, and get moving.
