Quake is a first-person shooter computer game developed by id Software and released on June 22, 1996.


In Quake, you take on the role of a soldier who is the last surviving member of a taskforce assembled to stop codename Quake, a mysterious enemy who is using slipgate technology to attack military installations. When Quake pre-emptively takes out the rest of your task force, you must use a slipgate to teleport to his own dimension to extract some payback.
