VULKAN --
For many months now there has been vkQuake as a port of Quake 1 to Vulkan while now there is a port of that pulling in SteamVR support.

If you want to relive Quake 1 in virtual reality, vkQuakeVR is a project you will want to watch. vkQuakeVR that is a fork of vkQuake, which in turn is based on QuakeSpam. The Vulkan implementation is the same as what vkQuake provides, but vkQuakeVR is tieing in SteamVR / OpenVR support.

With the latest Git work, vkQuakeVR appears to be capable of running on the new SteamVR Linux beta.

Those interested can find vkQuakeVR via this GitHub repository. I'll try out vkQuakeVR as part of our ongoing SteamVR Linux testing.
