Bungie’s Marathon Trilogy Available for Free Download
The name Bungie will forever be synonymous with Halo. Long before Master Chief arrived on the scene, however, the then-Chicago-based company was hard at work on a game called Marathon. Inspired by the rampant popularity of Doom, Bungie took the first-person structure and added an in-depth sci-fi story. Released in 1994, the game was good enough to end up on numerous years’-best lists, and it duly spawned two sequels.
After its mid-nineties heyday, Marathon was consigned to the dustbin of gaming history. No longer, however! Thanks to the efforts of dedicated coders and modders, there is now an open source version of the original game engine, which enables franchise devotees to play Marathon on modern machines. What’s more, under the terms of a generous General Public License, the entire trilogy can downloaded for free!
