Classic Marathon Announced

A new Steam Listing for Classic Marathon is now online, revealing Aleph One developer Aleph One Developer has plans to revive this classic first-person shooter developed by Bungie for Macintosh computers back in the 20th century. A new installment in this series is also in the works at Bungie and is currently expected in 2025. Aleph One is a game engine that leverages the open-source release of the Marathon source code, but now it appears a full re-release of the first Marathon is "coming soon." The original game from 1994 was groundbreaking, including being one of the first games to offer vertical aiming, perhaps the first, as it launched two days before Heretic. But the state-of-the-art has evolved in three decades, so the re-release promises updates like optional widescreen HUD support, 3D filtering/perspective, positional audio, and 60+ fps interpolation "just in case the original is too authentic." Here's word:
Alien forces have boarded the colony ship UESC Marathon in the Tau Ceti system, in orbit around humanity’s first interstellar colony. The situation is dire, and as a security officer assigned to the Marathon, your duty is to defend the ship and its crew from the alien threat.

This classic 1994 Bungie™ FPS had a foundational influence on the genre, and is now maintained by the fan community. Experience authentic game play using the original data files, with optional widescreen HUD support, 3D filtering/perspective, positional audio, and 60+ fps interpolation, just in case the original is too authentic.
