Fancy a Quake III Deathmatch?

We have enormous luck with the people called Liam (three and counting now) who volunteer to do great stuff for Raspberry Pi. Liam McLoughlin (@hexxeh on Twitter) has so far got Chromium OS running on his Raspi, along with the very useful Despotify and a Raspberry Pi firmware updater. All the above are available at his website, and knowing Liam, I’m sure there’s more to come.

This game may well have been made me drop a class-mark in the second year of my degree. And I'm not altogether sure that rocket jumping is a useful life skill.

Liam put a call out last night for people who are lucky enough to have managed to get their hands on a Raspberry Pi, and who fancy a Quake III Deathmatch. He’s now made the Quake III binaries available (only tested so far on the most recent Debian release) at radium.hexxeh.net/quake3.zip. If you head over to #raspberrypi at Freenode IRC, you’ll find willing victims opponents in the channel.

The zip file compresses to 3.14MB, which we think is kind of serendipitous.
