Insane perfectionism

liacrow on Feb 17th, 2019, Version 1.0

The amount of coding that went into perfectly recreating the exact behaviour of PiD is absolutely mind-boggling.

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 version 1.7 of AlephOne or newer. Download here: https://alephone.lhowon.org/download.html.

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.
