"Quake was a revolutionary game. It was the first true 3D gaming engine, and it created the world of online first person shooters. Now in the time of Quake 3: Arena and Unreal Tournament, Quake is still holding its own. It still has a strong online community featuring many great mods and maps. Now when you feel like going back to your roots, to when the Rocket Launcher was all that mattered, and the gibs flew as far as you could see, you can. The best way to Quake on a Linux system is undoubtedly QuakeForge."

"QuakeForge is a source modification of ID Software's Quake/QuakeWorld engine. It is designed with cheat-protection in mind, but also features many improvements over QuakeWorld's original client."

"It has currently been split into two trees.

  • QuakeForge: Newtree is compatible with QuakeWorld clients and server.
  • QuakeForge: NUQ is the single player version; it is not compatible with QuakeWorld."
