MachineGames, the developer of the amazing Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Old Blood, have released a new episode for the first Quake, the classic of id Software, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the game.
This small expansion, Dopa, which you can download for free here [file .rar, 5.3 MB], includes 11 maps: one introductory, eight major, one secret and last prepared for Deathmatch mode. Inside the file with new levels is a text document that explains how to install them; It is not difficult.
These levels have some movement of marketing (Bethesda is the owner of MachineGames and id Software, and your website has stayed Dopa; a few days ago announced Quake Champions, a new installment of the series), but I can think that something heartfelt tribute of MachineGames to one of the games that defined the time of learning of some of its most prominent members there is. Jerk Gustafsson, one of the founders of the Studio, has spoken more than once of his passion for Quake: his first steps in the development of video games were creating levels for the shooter from id Software.
«I like to create things. «Me jumping classes to work as a bricklayer when he was 15 years old, and at 25 I bought my first computer, and with it,’s masterpiece it the game for computer of id Software, Quake», said Gustafsson in his HOUSEKEEPER of Reddit. «Only playing mode for a player, again and again, until I bought a modem, connect me to the internet and discovered Worldcraft, a tool that allowed me to create my own levels. For me, that was the most amazing of my life and I stopped not creating levels for Quake until I joined a company called Starbreeze, in 1998.
Precisely with Worldcraft, one of the editors of most popular Quake and Quake 2 levels, created doping, the new episode.
As a result of doping has given me to play the first Quake and has been one of the experiences more enlightening of recent times. I do not doubt the ability of id to make a great game and a pleasant surprise Champions, but I recommend you go back to it, or dive to the bottom for the first time, if you have not done so yet, because it is one of those peaks of the game that sometimes it seems that they have not passed. (It is on Steam by €2,49 with a discount of 50%; it’s funny, because I swear that a couple of weeks ago cost €9.99, but who cares. Play the fucking Quake, I ask you. E search how to add the soundtrack to this version.)
