Quake is id's follow-up to the Doom series and one of the first shooters to use true 3D gameplay without any of the restrictions found in Doom and similar games.
Steam buyers beware - the version sold through Steam does not include any music.
DOSBox is emulating more than one sound card, so Quake chooses one: GravisUltraSound (GUS). Unfortunately it seems that this emulated device doesn't work with Quake (in DOSBox 0.72). So if you don't hear any sound simply deactivate GUS and Quake will choose another sound card. To do so either set it in the dosbox.conf to 'false' or type 'config -set "gus gus=false"' on the prompt.
