Editor’s Note: The Remake Quake mod is dead, this page exists for historical purposes only.
ReMakeQuake is a mod (partial conversion) project offering a fresh perspective on the ’90s cult shooter game, QUAKE. It is the team’s vision of the world of Quake and thereby a modern remake.
RMQ includes almost 40 levels, a mountain of new features, a growing roster of new baddies and its own cross-platform Quake-derived engine.
Multiplayer is fully supported, its maps recreated, remakes of classic multiplayer maps added, expanded with additional game modes (such as Capture the Flag), new/rebalanced weapons, bots, and augmented by an expanded set of moves.
The classic Quake mod that RMQ is best compared to is Nehahra, although RMQ also functions as a level design toolkit similar to Quoth and includes an ambitious multiplayer part. Another similarity exists to the “Knee-Deep in ZDOOM” project which recreated the shareware episode of the original DOOM using a much improved DOOM engine.
RMQ is not a “free Quake” type of thing. RMQ requires a full, registered copy of Quake (TM).
