The open source version of Bungie’s Marathon game
Aleph One is the open source version of Bungie’s Marathon game.
Marathon is a three-part, first-person shooter series that was published by Bungie Software. The complete Marathon trilogy consists of “Marathon”, “Marathon 2 Durandal”, and “Marathon Infinity”. The hallmark of the series is the detailed story-line that unfolds throughout the game.
After Bungie released the source code to the Mac OS version of Marathon, the Aleph One project was created to enhance the software and port it to other operating systems. As AlephOne has matured, so have the user-contributed scenarios, some which far surpass the original Marathon game scenarios themselves.
Aleph One is OpenGL-accelerated, but performs well without OpenGL if you do not have a graphics card with the appropriate functionality you need to use the -g/–nogl option.
