Finn ‘Demakes’ Quake on an Oscilloscope

Finnish programmer and artist Pekka Väänänen has used an old Hitachi oscilloscope – a device that turns electrical signals into visual waves – to create a ‘demake’ of id Software’s classic first-person shooter Quake.

To achieve the haunting reimagining, Väänänen ran the original PC game through a modified Darkplaces engine, using that to generate a 96kHz audio visualisation of the levels from its scene geometry. That data was fed into the oscilloscope, creating a rudimentary monochrome version of the game.
