Instagib

Instagib game using WebGL, Dart and Q3DM17 - The Longest Yard

Introduction

This is a project written in Dart trying to bring the frantic instagib gameplay from the Quake 3 map The Longest Yard (q3dm17) to the web.

It is a work in progress and NOT finished yet!

Here is a playable alpha: https://rhulha.github.io/Instagib/

Motivation

In a way this project is the culmination of my life's passion. I have been a fan of John Carmack ever since I played Quake 1. With the release of Quake 3 I finally started getting into mod making having been a fan and player of many Quake 2 mods myself. My first dip into the water resulted in me writing a tutorial on weapon dropping for planetquake/code3arena 17 years ago. Then I got a gig on a mod team trying to create a realistic shooter. We didn't finish our work, but I learned a lot about teamwork. In the end I went on to write two mods alone, one where you had to buy your weapons for frags and one where all players would hunt one very powerful player, which got featured on an italian game magazine disc. My love for quake 3 has never wavered and ever since I learned about WebGL I wanted to try to port the instagib gameplay to the web.
