The Map file for Marathon 2: Durandal, as it was presented in the Windows 95 release.
The Windows map file contains several visual (and a few gameplay altering) changes from the Mac version, many small, some big. It also has a few altered terminal images.
Anyone familiar with "Waterloo Waterpark" will immediately be surprised with this rendition.
There are some players who do prefer the Windows map, so I decided it would be worth posting on Simplici7y.
The M2 Win95 map file is not particularly hard to obtain, as it is available in retail M2 copies for Windows, and it's available as a download on the Trilogy Release site, HOWEVER, that merge does not contain chapter screen sound effects. I re-merged the map file with the Mac version's sound resource folder, so now all chapter screens will play the appropriate sound.

This is a full port of the 1993 mac game "Pathways Into Darkness" by Bungie to the Aleph One engine. Therefore, Pathways into Darkness is now available on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
Note: You must use (an old) version of Aleph One currently, as version 1.4 has a bug. Download it here: https://github.com/Aleph-One-Marathon/alephone/releases/tag/release-20200904.
This is a little different from a typical marathon scenario, as it features:
- Levels that can be re-visited multiple times with their state preserved.
- Advanced inventory for carrying and using many items.
- Resting to heal.
- Use of crystals to use special powers, along with conventional weapons.
- RPG elements.
- An ending score based on how you do while playing the game.
- Talking to the dead.
Make sure to read the readme for important information about controls. There are some non-obvious things you need to be aware of when playing the game. If you get stuck, there is a link to some Youtube videos in the readme that can be used as a guide.
Notes for version 1.2:
Changes for 1.2:
Requires AlephOne 1.3 now. Making use of new AlephOne features for a better implementation of certain things. Various bug fixes and fix the spelling of The Labyrinth. See readme for more details.
Changes for 1.1.1:
Fix issue with people that started a game on v1.0, upgraded to 1.1 and continued their saved games. They were not able to arm the bomb.
Changes for 1.1:
Many bug fixes and other improvements/quality of life changes.
The readme has a full list of changes in 1.1.
If you are currently playing through the game, you can keep using your existing saved game. Just click OK when it says the map has changed, and the next time you transition between levels, you'll get the new changes.

Susannah Windows 1.0

- Windows version
- For Mac OSX version, click here.
My first ever finished game, a final project during my art studies at VMA in 2008/2009.
An experiment in how far one can go by stripping the elements of a video game down to its bare essentials of mechanics, dynamics and aesthetics, while in the meantime, showcasing the importance and the purpose of audial elements in interactive entertainment.
Set in a bleak sterile world of white, where nothing exists except the disturbingly pure visuals, the game follows the avatar's journey through the bleak levels of the world, accompanied by a soundtrack, to migrate and merge to the unknown entity which called for him.
Susannah was showcased at the Þrír í Þriðja exhibition in Verksmiðjan, Hjalteyri (Iceland) in 2009.
