I interviewed American McGee about Quake

because I had so many questions about Quake and he seemed like a good victim for my over-zealous enthusiasm. Oh and also this year is Quake’s 15th anniversary, today in 1996 the shareware was released. I did not play Quake until ~2000/2001, lame isn’t it? Anyways, here you go: American McGee on Quake. Enjoy!

    Awesome interview, my friend! Thank you for that! Now, all i want is an interview with Carmack himself about the Quake reboot thing. Quake forever! \o/

    Great interview. American, if you’re reading this. Thanks for Quake. It may not have been planned, but the results of the alchemy was one of the best things ever. Quake changed my life.

    agreed, an excellent look back at a seminal moment in gaming history! now, i just wish that some enterprising journalist (hint hint :)) would write the definitive account of id’s stumble and fall in the 21st century.

    That would be David Kushner’s Masters of Doom book.

    Great interview. What really got me thinking is where he talks about the “fun” part of the game. It is something I often forget when I think about the game and maybe take it too seriously. There are surely lots of funny things in Quake. The “dark dimension” is prevalent, but the fun is there too and definitely should be there.

    @SPIRIT – masters of doom is a fun read, but it’s too anecdotal and fanboyish :) i was thinking of something with a lot more gravitas and in depth research.

    Might be a good idea to put this into the interview list ;)

    Amazing interview. Yes we still play quake and yes guys 15 years younger than you will kick your ass… hell, guys younger than the game itself!

    The humor/style with the violence is so important. It sets quake 1 apart.
