Check Out This Quake Clone That Plays Directly From Your Browser

id Software’s Quake will be turning 25 years old this year and as it stands, there’s no shortage of triple-A titles that pay homage to the iconic first-person shooter, in some form or another. For one developer, that homage came in the form of a Quake-like clone that is far smaller in file size and, unlike major titles these days, only take up a tiny amount of storage space.

The game, officially known as Q1K3, was created by programmer Dominic Szablewski as part of his entry to Js13kGames, a JavaScript coding competition. What makes Szablewski’s game unique is its file size; as per competition rules, game file sizes cannot be larger than 13 kilobytes (KB).

The end result is a game that you can play directly from your browser and, much like the original Quake, looks really fun. Szablewski’s Q1K3 features two levels, five enemy types, and three different weapons to cycle through. Additionally, the game also features some level of environmental effects, including dynamic lighting and robust collision detection.
