- This is the first Microsoft DOS and Windows 16-32 bits version of this game. For other games in the series see Quake.
Quake in Japanese (' ク エ イ ク - Quake ), in Chinese ( 震灾 - Quake ), is a first-person shooter of great importance to the world of video games, Id Software from the creators Wolfenstein 3D and Doom, now you have a much more impressive 3D environment. Dynamic lighting, stackable sectors, 3D sprites and many other advancements make Quake technically superior to any previous 3D game.
Its story centers: in the not-too-distant future, military scientists develop Slipgates (Portals-Passways), machines that allow organisms to materialize to and from distant points in space. Without their ability to stop it, these devices were also able to link dimensions, causing one of these installations to create a link between this universe and a reality inhabited by demons (alluding to hell), starting a massive invasion that threatens to destroy the planet. . Soon, the soldiers of the terrestrial military bases are defeated before the huge hordes.
At this point, and without a graphical introduction, the player assumes the role of the last survivor of a battalion, a nameless soldier (later called Ranger, short for military special forces) who crosses the first portal and begins the odyssey to defeat the greatest. of these demons, an extremely powerful enemy known only by the code name "Quake" (later revealed to be Shub-Niggurath, a dark pagan goddess full of evil).
This soldier will undertake a series of interdimensional journeys between our world and the demonic world, carrying only a shotgun and an axe, looking for the exits of the places where he appears teleported, in order to get closer and closer to Shub-Niggurath and complete his mission to eradicate him.
The game is an FPS, so ignore the story, just run around and shoot stuff. The Windows and Linux versions of Quake use identical music to the original DOS version of Quake. Quake also received a couple of updates with GLQuake (which uses OpenGL for graphics).
It did not do badly in sales, it received very good reviews, its multiplayer made the game sell in batches, its story was somewhat fresh but complicated by the difficulty of the game.
Musicid Software was clever enough to get the industrial Nine Inch Nails master himself, Trent Reznor, to create their music and sound effects. Their mutual admiration allowed Trent Reznor to do his job entirely for free. He has stated on this soundtrack:
Although his work on the game's soundtrack wasn't on par with his normal album music, it did provide a much more professional sounding soundtrack than another MIDI set ever could. Also, having Reznor create the soundtrack was a major selling point for the game. Basically, if you like Nine Inch Nails, you'll be able to enjoy this industrial soundtrack. Oddly enough, the game never released an official soundtrack, but since the music could be played via the game disc (provided you skipped track 1) it wasn't really needed.
The game music does not have any official titles, all of them are based mostly on the places where it is playing.

The soundtrack is CD audio on the game disc. It was ripped using CDex. CD audio is too large to store in its raw format, besides, the recording sounds the same as the rip.
You don't have to setup up an audio device in Quake, it automatically configures itself when you start the game.
