A new mod for Quake has been released, which overhauls the game in a pretty big way, this is a huge sound & music mod which turns the game into an epic experience. Add in the Darkplaces mod and you've got yourself a true classic in an almost HD experience.
EpiQuake is a new sound mod for Quake 1 which has replaced around 90% of Trent Reznors sound design work with new original recordings bringing quake up to date by giving the sound an overall modern vibe with some epic flare. HUGE sounding / stereo panned weapons, deadly new enemy sounds, toned down yet dark ambient sounds, and epic platform / door sounds with a huge sense of low end have all been included.
The entire project was completed over the course of two weeks by veteran game and film sound designer / composer Rich Douglas. EpiQuake works best with Dark Places (you just place the pk3 files in your darkplaces/id1 folder), but with some crafty manual copying, you can get these sounds to work in almost ANY version of the game.
It may seem strange for me to say this, but I never really got into Quake single player, although I remember getting exhausted at playing the multiplayer versions in the days of Quake. Gave up in the end, I was rubbish. But still, with the texture updates and overhauled sound/music, I think i'll be loading Quake up again.
