The SEGA Saturn is famous for being a difficult platform to develop for, so Quake landing on the system was impressive. id Software brought their iconic first person shooter to the system thanks to the studio Lobotomy Software. They worked on a game called Powerslave before working on Quake Saturn.
The game was a demanding title during the time due to being a completely 3D FPS. It has issues running on the Saturn but still, it is very impressive considering that.
