Quake Mobile next month

Filed under
Gaming

Quake, the famous 3D Shooter from id Software that was originally released in 1996 for the PC, is being ported for 3D-enabled mobile phones this July.

Quake Mobile is in development by a company called Bare Naked Productions, the game is being specifically designed for a new generation of mobile phones handsets that feature dedicated 3D graphics hardware. This hardware allows the phone to display complex 3D environments and objects, exactly what Quake needs. I remember the original Quake hogging all of my system resources, so I added a 16MB Monster PCI 3D graphics card, this kept the FPS down.

The 3D-enabled mobile phones will be coming out of Korea next month, no particulars were revealed in the announcement, just a teaser for us Quake fans. But I'm sure the hardware will be much better in mobiles phones than what we were using on our desktops. So everyone put your armor vests on and load up your rocket launchers, Quake Mobile is coming.

A small note on window decorations

If you have updated to the recently released GNOME development version, you may have noticed that some window decorations look slightly different. Of course it is quite normal for the theme to evolve with the rest of GNOME, but in this case the visual changes are actually the result of some bigger changes under the hood which deserve some more explanation. It is well-known that GTK+ gained support for client-side decorations a while ago – after all, most GNOME applications were quick in adopting custom titlebars, which have become one of the most distinguished patterns of GNOME 3 applications. However it is less well-known that client-side decorations may also be used for windows with no custom decorations, namely when using GDK’s wayland backend. Read more
