Western Quake 3 strives to recreate the atmosphere of the 'Dollar trilogy' of spaghetti westerns. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - they're all in there. Together with characters and mood from 'Once Upon a Time in the West', and others. Even Annie Oakley and Calamity Jane have been modelled.

Play deathmatch, duels, or bank robbery. Pick your favorite weapons among a historically correct selection of pistols, rifles, shotguns, dynamite, molotovs and gatling guns.

Now, this is interesting, because just last night, I got into a very distinctly western mood and started downloading any released mod I could find. But since I didn't have Quake 3, I had to sadly pass this one up.

Dammit, now I'm off to buy it.

Um, isn't Quake 3 open source? Don't think you need to buy it to play it anymore...

We will start working on a standalone release of WQ3 soon. So stay tuned. The problem is that some of the maps are using baseq3 textures, so we have to replace them before we can release a completely free game.

I can promise you it's a lot better now. If you haven't even tried the release from 2003, you're in for a surprise.

yeah i haven't tried the 2003 release yet either

i remember back when there was a nude woman in a bathtub, and the match fire didn't even light up, and the trademark Good Bad n' Ugly themes playing every round!
