The Coven: Disposable Heroes, Deadlode 2, and more Quake II Total Conversion Mods

The Coven was an independent computer games developer with its roots in the Doom and Quake communities. Originally founded by John "Gestalt" Bye in late 1996, The Coven worked on a free Doom II add-on before moving on to Quake and going commercial in the summer of 1997. The Coven was closed in the winter of 1999, and all their work is now available for free.

QuakeCast #20: Donde – Quake 2 Archivist

This week ArrrCee and dumptruck escape to another universe! The Quake 2 universe that is. Donde takes us on a decades-long journey through the worldwide Quake 2 multiplayer scene. He documents the historical, sometimes hysterical and always human stories starring gamers from around the world. It's late 90's gaming history, one Quake 2 story at a time. Another weird, wonderful and sometimes deeply poignant edition of the QuakeCast.

Redwood’s Photos of QuakeCon ’96 and ’97

Well, #quakecon seemed to be a success. Several people were impressed with the turnout including the id boys. I will have #quakecon pics in a few days and I'll have room to post them since I now have more web page space. Like a little good web page maintainer I took a fair amount of notes. I attended Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday afternoon.

don’t Underestimate anything: Quake Battle Chess

QBC allows you to move freely around the board when selecting your chess pieces, and MORPH into the one you selected. You have full control!!!! One thing that will make QBC rise above any other quake patch, is INTELLIGENCE. QBC can tell if you have made a correct move, castle, enpassant, capture, promotion to any piece. QBC can tell if you are castling through check, incheck, giving the opponent a Check attack, but the most amazing fact is still to come.... QBC can determine CHECK MATE and STALEMATE!!!!!!!!!!!
