There was a game that look like Quake-3 graphics but is only 96kb. What was its name?

In the game, there were spider-like creatures and i was shooting at them. I forgot the name.

When the executable file was run, it loaded for 5-minutes before started working.

I didnt have internet connection when i ran the executable. How come it is only 96kb but worked like a hundred-megabyte?
