This is Reflex. Reflex is a modern homage to the old Arena FPS's, taking particular inspiration from the CPMA mod of Quake 3. This isn't the same game, as there are many new movement options previously unseen in other Quake games or even other Arena FPS's in general.

From the game's Steam page:
"Reflex is a competitive Arena FPS that combines modern tech with the speed, precision and freedom of a 90s shooter. If you sunk countless hours into the Quake or Unreal series, Reflex will feel like a welcome return of the old school shooter feel."

The game is still in Early Access, but has added many features such as

- custom HUD and visual widgets
- Steam Workshop integration
- Matchmaking
- integrated and supported Community Maps
- Armor and Melee weapon customization
- Ranks

with more coming up. This game as of 1/11/17 has just gone to Version 0.48, so there is still much to go before this game is completely finished. However, I strongly recommend this game to all diehard Quakers, and I hope to see y'all in the arena sometime.

Nice post Kill.  I had a blast playing this game and it keeps popping back into my mind and I'm itching to play it more, especially with MM added in the latest patch. One of things I thought was really cool are the little ledges in the walls that are painted different colors signifying you can jump high off of them if you time it right. The gameplay is really fast and it feels REALLY satisfying when you get multi-kills. Melee kills are also really satifying because they are really hard to perform, but are deadly when you make contact.  I'ts got a good mix of challenging weapons too. All around it looks like it has a LOT of potential. Already in really great shape for Early Access.
