Now that it's finally gone public domain we don't have to live in fear when singing the happy birthday song. And guess who's turning 20? Quake! So here we go, "Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you" etc, etc. Actually that song kinda sucks. But anyway, Quake is 20. And to celebrate one of the game's creators, John Romero, took to his blog to talk about the seminal shooter plus post the first ever screenshots from the game.

And because we're talking about the mid '90s here, they're in 320x200 resolution. Which, apparently was a resolution that people were fine with back in the day. And to think, some of us find 1920x1080 a little on the low-res side. The screenshots are a very early look at what became Quake, and because of that are very cool to see.

Alongside the early screens Romero also posted up a pretty long .txt file called QUAKETALK 95 FAQ that tells you everything you need to know about Quake. If it were October 22, 1995.

You could get OpenGL patch and higher res textures, and it looked pretty good, and run at 1024 (maybe higher) later on. Playing coop with 4 players running through the single player missions (with the graphic improvement pack) was good with team damage on.

Saw MachineGames made a new episode for Quake to celebrate the 20th anniversary. Hoping to find some time to give it a whirl.

Sif getting a GL card "canopus pure 3d " and seeing the light before the person was in sight was mind blowing best game ever IMHO there will never be an equal. + Powerup CTF f***en awesome )) 10/10 I don't hold any real hope that the quake hero's ( overwatch wannabe ) will be any good no
