About This Game
Quake is a first-person shooter action game that was published by id Software on May 31, 1996. It introduced some of the greatest advances in the 3D game genre: it uses three-dimensional models for players and monsters instead of of two-dimensional sprites; and the world where the game takes place is created as a true three-dimensional space,
The game’s story follows the usual format for id Software’s first-person games: portals to realities of evil beings have been opened, and you are the only one who can travel through them to close them.
In the specific case of Quake, the other reality is inspired by many influences, highlighting the novels of Howard Phillips Lovecraft. (the endgame boss is Shub-Niggurath himself)
