Mac-made Discs of Quake
3:59 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Our own Patrick Leyden pointed out that PlanetQuake's featured 'mod' for the day is Discs of Quake, which brings gameplay features based on the movie Tron to the original Quake. Ho hum, you say, is anyone still playing that ancient game? Well, perhaps there are a few diehards left -- however, this mod is significant for another reason.

Discs of Tron was created totally with Mac-specific tools. Quake 1 is one of the very few PC ports which inspired shareware and freeware editing tools for our platform. Using Quiver, Meshwork and other Mac-specific tools, author Rich Coughlan has created a unique modification and maps which seek to replicate the unique form of combat found in the movie Tron. While we are personally surprise that there haven't been more Tron-inspired video games over the years -- after all, the movie dealt directly with video games -- this one is a pleasant trip down memory lane. If you still have Q1 installed on a dark corner of your hard drive, this one is worth downloading. If you get inspired to create your own mod, the author also has a list of what tools he used and where to find them on the Downloads section of the site.
