If you are one of the lucky few who already have their Raspberry Pi, would you like a game of Quake III on it?


This is what was just posted on the Raspberry Pi blog:

We have enormous luck with the people called Liam (three and counting now) who volunteer to do great stuff for Raspberry Pi. Liam McLoughlin (@hexxeh on Twitter) has so far got Chromium OS running on his Raspi, along with the very useful Despotify and a Raspberry Pi firmware updater. All the above are available at his website, and knowing Liam, I’m sure there’s more to come.

Liam put a call out last night for people who are lucky enough to have managed to get their hands on a Raspberry Pi, and who fancy a Quake III Deathmatch. He’s now made the Quake III binaries available (only tested so far on the most recent Debian release) at radium.hexxeh.net/quake3.zip. If you head over to #raspberrypi at Freenode IRC, you’ll find willing victims opponents in the channel.

The zip file compresses to 3.14MB, which we think is kind of serendipitous.

Have you ordered one? Let us know if you get yours before us, or even after us. I know a lot of people are tweeting their orders should be early May, so well done.

I have downloaded Quake III so that I am ready when mine appears!
