Quarantine is a First-Person Vehicular Combat Game developed by Imageexcel and released by Game Tek in 1994 for MSDOS and the 3DO. It was part of the wave of first-person games that followed the release of the original Doom in 1993.

The game is set in the 2040s in a cesspool of a burg called KEMO City. Criminals roam the streets in armored hovercars, terrorizing citizens without fear of retribution. OmniCorp rules the city with an iron fist, via a massive wall around the city under the guise of a "defensive measure". The wall has only one -sealed- exit, so essentially the entire city is one big prison for everyone who lives within it, criminal or otherwise.

Just prior to the events of the game, Omnicorp decided to test the behavior-altering chemical Hydergine 344 on the citizens. This chemical was supposed to pacify them, and was distributed through the city's water supply. Unfortunately, OmniCorp failed to predict the chemical's reaction to the stagnant water, resulting in massive brain damage and insanity in many citizens. More than half the population became crazed killers overnight.

You are Drake Edgewater, trash-talking, hard-drinking cab driver and one of the lucky few unaffected by the spreading virus. You drive a '52 Checker "hovercab", armed with an assortment of lethal weaponry. Your goal is to deliver passengers and packages for what money you can scrounge, buy upgrades, and eventually escape.

The game later received a sequel, Road Warrior, which featured largely the same gameplay but a more mission-based, story focused campaign. Both of these should not be confused with the films of the same names.
