Chumby Gets Quake

Quake was the FPS that really kick started my interest in professional gaming, as I started to download demos of the great Thresh, reviewing them over and over again. One of the greatest 1-on-1 matches I’ve ever seen was the match up between Reptile and Thresh, where the former actually beat the latter – something unthinkable back in those days. Well, for those who love all things Quake, you will be pleased to know that even the Chumby has a port of Quake that runs under SDL and hacked up to a point where the accelerometer is used to move within the game, while the bend switch is used to fire and touching anywhere on the display will cause the player to jump or activate items. Still can’t beat a keyboard and mouse combo though.
