Java Quake 2 Released
8:18 AM | Andy Largent | 11 comments

Bytonic Software has released a Java-based version of id Software's hit shooter, Quake 2. Dubbed Jake2, the port runs at full speed on many modern machines, and it is compatible with Mac OS X.

Jake2 is available as a Java "Webstart" application, meaning after downloading a small starter file, Jake2 will take care of downloading and installing the other necessary files. If you don't have the original Quake 2 data files on your machine, it can download those for you as well.

Here are some of the features of Jake2:

  • pure Java port of the Quake2 game engine
  • full playable singleplayer mode
  • full featured multiplayer client
  • multiplayer server
  • demo playback and recording
  • save/load games
  • fullscreen support
  • two different OpenGL bindings (jogl and lwjgl)
  • OpenAL sound engine for true 3D sound
For more information, or to start playing Jake2 now, head over to the Bytonic website.
