The moment that started it all off. 15 years ago today the pre-release demo of Quake (QTest) from id Software
was released. It had multiplayer support with 3 multiplayer maps (Dm1,Dm2, Dm3) no powerups, no axe, different sounds but it allowed you to create Entity Mods and custom player skins. Quake itself arrived in June 1996 with Quakeworld itself coming along in December 1996. 15 years on, the game is still alive and kicking with 36 teams competing in this seasons EQL. Hard to believe.
