📕 Description [fr]

Le 1er épisode d'une trilogie d'aventures de type futuriste en vision subjective 3D, par la Aleph One Team.

Marathon est un ancien jeu commercial (de Bungie Software), de type FPS, décliné en une trilogie composée respectivement des jeux :
• Marathon (1994),
• Marathon 2: Durandal (1995)
• Marathon Infinity (1996).
En 2000 Bungie a libéré le moteur de Marathon et a offert les données de ces 3 jeux en 2005.
Le moteur Aleph One dérivé des moteurs de "Marathon 2" et "Marathon Infinity" permet aujourd'hui de faire fonctionner cette suite de jeux ainsi que d'autres mods développés par la communauté.

Dans ce 1er opus dénommé Marathon (ou plus exactement M1A1, car il s'agit en fait d'une conversion du fichier original des données Marathon 1, incompatible avec le moteur Aleph One), le joueur incarne un officier de sécurité du vaisseau colonial Marathon en l'an 2794 qui - revenant d'une mission en dehors de son vaisseau, le retrouve envahi de belliqueux aliens (les Pfhors) ...
Le jeu peut être joué en solo ou en multijoueur coopération.

Extrait de la page Wikipedia (licence : CC BY-SA 3.0) :
Le jeu place le joueur en 2794 en tant qu'officier de sécurité à bord du vaisseau humain colonial Marathon. De retour d'une mission à l'extérieur il découvre que le vaisseau est envahi par une race d'extraterrestres les Pfhor, sorte d'esclavagistes modernes. Il doit alors éliminer les extraterrestres afin atteindre les ordinateurs de bord pour essayer d'apprendre ce qui s'est passé. Le joueur interagit avec les différentes intelligences artificielles du vaisseau (Leela, Tycho et Durandal) par l'intermédiaire de terminaux. Piratée par les aliens, l'une d'elles succombe rapidement et le joueur doit alors se référer à Durandal, une autre intelligence artificielle, pour expulser les envahisseur et réactiver les défenses du vaisseau. Malheureusement, Durandal, atteint d'un trouble nommé Rampant, devient complètement fou au fil des niveaux et son discours devient de plus en plus inquiétant. Libérations de prisonniers et réactivations de sections du vaisseau se succèdent alors, à grand renfort d'extermination des aliens. Au cours du jeu, Durandal parvient à libérer les S'Pht - une autre race extraterrestre - de l'emprise des Pfhor en les piratant, car ils sont entrés dans le système électronique du vaisseau.

📕 Description [en]

Alien forces have boarded the interstellar colony ship Marathon. The situation is dire. As a security officer onboard, it is your duty to defend the ship and its crew.

Experience the start of Bungie's iconic trilogy with Marathon. This release is a meticulous conversion of the original game to the Aleph One engine, with many details and battles restored that were missing from the earlier "M1A1" release.

🌍️ Wikipedia :Marathon is a first-person shooter video game developed and published by Bungie, and released in December 1994 for the Apple Macintosh. The game was Bungie's second foray into the emerging genre of games with a first-person perspective, the first being Pathways into Darkness, which was released in 1993. Marathon was released at a time when other early first-person shooters such as Doom were enjoying popularity among PC users, and it was widely seen as a Macintosh counterpart to Doom, which would not be ported to the Macintosh platform until 1995. The game takes place several centuries into the future in outer space and sets the player as a security officer attempting to defeat an alien invasion aboard a colony ship named the Marathon.

Although Marathon features action-heavy, first-person shooter gameplay similar to Doom and other contemporaries, the game is renowned for having an intricate story line that is also an essential element of its gameplay, whereas most similar games devote minimal attention to plot for the sake of faster, simpler, more action-oriented gameplay. In addition to a single-player scenario with a rich plot, Marathon also features a multiplayer deathmatch mode through which up to eight players on separate machines on the same computer network can compete against each other individually or on teams. This functionality tremendously increased anticipation for Marathon prior to release, and won the game the Macworld Game Hall of Fame Award for the best multiplayer game in 1995.

Marathon is the first game in a series of three games collectively known as the Marathon Trilogy, which in addition to Marathon also includes its two sequels, Marathon 2: Durandal and Marathon Infinity, released in 1995 and 1996 respectively. In 1996, Bungie completed Super Marathon, a port of Marathon and Marathon 2 to Apple's short-lived Apple Bandai Pippin video game console.

Storyline

Marathon is unique among contemporary first-person shooter games for its particularly rich science fiction plot. The plot of the story is primarily revealed to the player by means of the numerous computer terminals accessed throughout the course of the game. These terminals relay information such as crew logs, maintenance documents, historical accounts, and stories, but their primary function is to allow the player to interface with three artificial intelligences (AIs), who provide the player with information about his current mission at any given point in the game and teleport him out of a level when his mission is complete.

The game takes place in outer space in the year 2794. The player is in the role of a nameless security officer stationed on the UESC Marathon, a multi-generational colony spacecraft built by hollowing out Deimos, one of Mars' two moons. The Marathon has arrived in the Tau Ceti solar system and is supporting the colonization effort of one of the planets, Tau Ceti IV. The game starts with the player making his way to the Marathon on the shuttle Mirata when an alien ship appears and attacks the system. He survives by ejecting seconds before the explosion of the Mirata, and hours later, his officer's escape pod then reaches one of the Marathon docking bays.

There are three AIs aboard the Marathon, each in command of some aspect of ship operations. All of them are under informational attack by the aliens, after being hit by an electromagnetic pulse from the alien ship. As the game begins, only one of the three AIs, Leela, is still fully functional.
