Quake Easter Egg - Ziggurat Vertigo

Play Quake and when you are feeling bored open up the console. Then type in "map e1m8" (no qoutation marks) and you will find yourself in a very twisted place indeed! Highlights include giants being crucified and no sense of gravity. Enjoy!

This is actually a secrete level in “The Grisly Grotto”, “E1M4”. You can find it by going into the tower. You should find a room with five plates in the floor. Step on the plates and a door on each side will open. There is a hole behind the doors. Jump into each hole and press the contacts. A massage will appear, “a secrete cave has opened”. Go back to the big pond and dive under. You should be able to find the secrete cave.

This is not an easter egg. Tt is indeed as yet another secret in the grisley grotto. Then you go to a room with a pool of water looking slime and a light (which is a motion sensor), run through the light and two doors at the walls will open go in them kill the ogres and push each button it will say a secret door has opened. go back into the humongous pool of water you encounter at the first part of the level and on the wall you will see a huge hole. go through and there will be a grenade launcher and a huge portal leading to, guess, Zigurat Vertigo.

Once I found this level, it was the one I played most in the game. Maybe someone will read this and create a game based on a low gravity premise.
