Here's a blast from the past from the dusty halls of our news archive. It was on this day 1996, that's right, six years ago today, that the encrypted version of Quake showed up on retail stores (this was the shareware version that you could activate with an 800 number), including the shelves of 7-11 of all places. I'm guessing that this is the biggest game title to use such an unusual distribution scheme. I'm also guessing that the ever more hax0r-filled world is the reason such distribution schemes never became more common. Of course, that's all guesswork, one thing I do know is that this all sure seems like a surprisingly long time ago.
