Free Quake

Is it possible to have a multiplayer deathmatch game of Quake or Quake II without buying any software? I keep seeing things about Quake mods, or OpenQuartz, and I know that the Quake and Quake II engines are now GPL, but: can you just get and play a game? What I want is just a downloadable game that I can install on a load of machines and then have people do deathmatches. That’s it. Is it even possible to do this?

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
