Quake Bot Archive

The goal of this project is to archive all versions of all Quake bots (QuakeC modifications).


Quake is a computer game released by id Software in mid 1996. The source code (QuakeC) that controls the game was released shortly after.

A Quake bot mod is a third-party modification to the Quake game code to introduce intelligent non-playable characters, typically opponents for deathmatch play.

Quake bots represent a historical breakthrough in computer game artificial intelligence (e.g. opponents that act like human players) and are also a lot of fun to play (e.g. a multiplayer game can be enjoyed as a singleplayer game).

Quake bot mods were mostly developed between 1996 and 2000 and were hosted on a tangle of third-party websites. Most of these websites have disappeared over the last 25 years, along with many bot mods themselves. This is a terrible loss!

This project seeks to (1) locate, (2) archive, and (3) host all versions of all Quake bot modifications in their original distributed form.

If you have backups of old Quake bots, you can help.
