Quake On LAN is an image for your Raspberry Pi based on Raspbian Lite. It creates a local server on your network that provides QuakeWorld, Quake II and Quake III Arena instances that can be connected to for multiplayer gaming, either from a wired or wireless device.
Want to organise a quick LAN Party for you and friends to remember the good ‘ol days? Organising an event to mark the 25th Anniversary of Quake in summer 2021? Looking for something to do with your old Raspberry Pi Model B? Then this project is for you!
If you are actually looking for an online QuakeWorld server, see here.
