"An enormous 6-level total conversion. (Well, okay, not total... and that's its biggest weakness.) The mapmaking is pretty good, and the new creatures are quite cool (you can see them in a series of very nice pics here if you're up for a 3 meg download, or get an idea from this 500K desktop picture), but I was bugged a bit when a new monster, with lots of new looks/sounds, died with an old sound, or fired with an old sound, or... Okay, it's a trivial complaint. Overall, this is really, really well done. It's been out for a while (as have lots of the recent uploads), but it's the first time I've seen it, and maybe you, too. Lots of art, lots of sound, lots of music (that's where all the new size comes from)."

It is 40 years after the combined forces of Earth and the S'pht Kr sacked the Pfhor system. You were put back into stasis after your legendary battles at Tau Ceti and L'howon. You've been recalled from stasis to help the UESC on a mission of utmost importance. You are aboard the UESC Leviathan and headed towards the Kolana system. Hobbes, the onboard AI, informs you of the situation. The Pfhor are back. So are the S'pht. More importantly, there is a new player in town, an AI called Wanda.
- An epic 3-way battle for the Jjaro AI with fluid alliances. Fight with the S'pht against the Pfhor, fight with the Pfhor against the S'pht. Fight alone against everyone.
- A new texture set
- 12 solo levels

Marathon TROJAN 1.0
Shappie on Aug 31st 2020
Here it is, at last: Marathon TROJAN. Now compatible with Aleph One (1.3 or newer), this uses the native M1 files to deliver the original, unaltered experience we know from the 90's.
M1 compatible fullscreen HUD plugins will work with TROJAN if you don't want to use the included Classic HUD plugin.
Additional files include the Weapons Pump Patch, FAQ, Manual, Spoiler Guide, and read me's from older versions of TROJAN.
Special thank you to Hamish Sanderson for giving us permission to distribute this re-release of TROJAN. Enjoy!

Shappie on Aug 30th 2020
Portal of Sigma is an Aleph One scenario with a new story, landscapes, textures, weapons, and updated sprites.
I've repackaged it and fixed a few things with the MML to make everything work with modern Aleph One. -Shappie

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 the latest version of Aleph One for this to work correctly. It is currently version 1.3 and can be found here: https://github.com/Aleph-One-Marathon/alephone/releases
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.

"What a hoot! If you enjoyed revisiting Earth in Tempus Irae, you're going to really like your "Vacation In Vilcabamba". The mapmaking is excellent and more than sufficiently puzzly, the new textures are gorgeous, the terminals are completely proof-read, the AI is moderately twisted, and the monster placement is quite good, with a new baddie for you to wrestle with. My only disappointment was that it was only one level; I finished it cheering for more." Description by Rigger

I have applied the old Mac patches and converted to files that modern Aleph One will read. Enjoy! -Shappie

Phoenix Falling 1.3
Shappie on Jul 18th 2020
Phoenix Falling is a large M1 scenario of 44 levels featuring a new story with new characters, weapons, creatures, sounds, shapes, and more. (48 with secret levels and one network level)
Please keep in mind - there are bugs in this release. Most of these are caused by running the game in the Aleph One engine, which did not yet exist when the scenario was created. This used to be run with the original M1 engine.
Some of the largest known bugs are related to shapes not rendering correctly with chairs, tracer rounds from the brass gun, the weapon display in the HUD interface, and most of the new creature animations.
Repackaged for Simplici7y with permission from the Phoenix Falling creators, Matt & Andrew Schenk.
Notes for version 1.3:
This version has a fixed Map file that should allow terminals to function in the vacuum levels.

"A 19-level solo masterpiece, with new sounds, shapes, terms, physics, bobs... and it's totally non-linear (you decide what order to do the levels in). Brought to you by the folks who did U.S.S. Raider, Athens Outpost, and the Marathon's Story page."
This scenario has been converted to an Aleph One compatible format and repackaged for Simplici7y.

A 22 level single player game with brand new terminal art, weapons, environments, characters, and a story fleshing out the Marathon universe.
This scenario had become unattainable save for a single place, the Marathon Total Carnage Pack. I extracted and repackaged it to upload here, so everyone can access and enjoy this incredible scenario.
It is technically "unfinished" but only in the sense that it is missing some polish. It is essentially complete and you can play through the entire scenario without issue. Read the read me file for more information about Apotheosis.
Special thanks to Hypersleep.

Glow Prototype 0.1
Meerjel01 on Mar 19th 2020
Decided to release Glow as an unfinished game because it feels like it will change when The Silence gets released.
Glow is built from Lost Land's resources, which is why the menu image is the base game's as well as textures and sprites. Music is taken from my iTunes list which features Tineidae, Totakeke and Cybernetika. Don't use the songs for your scenario if you haven't brought them yourself. (Cybernetika's was however free) No copyright intended for any song. Removal is acceptable.
Don't criticize this scenario. It's unfinished and are only mean't as a glance of history.
Notes for version 0.1:
Made a global version AND a less law breaking one as-well.
