This mod turns Quake into a top-down shooter

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Yeah, Quake is great, but it would be even better as a top-down action game?” Probably not, I’m guessing, but if you have—or if you’re just curious, now that I’ve brought it up—then this new mod is worth a moment of your time. It’s called Top-Down Quake, and that’s exactly what it does.

As with all good mods, this one requires a little bit of effort before you can make with the shooting, although it’s quite simple to install compared to some I’ve played with. You’ll need Quake, obviously, and the FTEQW engine, which supports the features required by the mod—get it here and extract the executable into your Quake directory. Put the mod’s “topdownquake” directory into the Quake directory as well.

Once that’s done, right-click the FTEQW executable and create a shortcut, then right-click the shortcut, select “Properties,” and add “-game topdownquake” (without the quotes) at the end of the Target field, so it looks like this:

(You can also just run FTEQW.exe with the “-game topdownquake” launch arguments if you prefer, but making a shortcut is worth the slight extra effort if you plan on running the mod more than once.)
