After all, what is a metastable AI but an electric god?

You've been sent by Durandal to assist a UESC assault on the Vylae homeworld. As Pfhor resistance crumbles, a strange discovery offers new opportunities... and new perils.

A mini-scenario for Marathon Infinity. Six levels, plus one interstitial and one secret bonus level.

Notes for version 1.1:

Notable changes in v1.1:

  • Rebalanced ammo and shield chargers throughout scenario to provide a smoother difficulty curve and encourage exploration/aggression.
  • Embedded MML+Lua (no longer requires Previous AI plugin)
  • Substantially revised Atom Heart Mother (more climactic battles in central portion) and Our Lord Debussy (more to explore in upper floors, more connections between different areas of level).
  • Removed potential Cask-of-Amontillado-esque soft lock in Sic Transit Gloria Mundi.
  • Added a secret bonus level! Getting there is half the challenge.
  • More weapon pickups on more levels, for those that prefer pistol starts (or just missed the weapon the first time around).
  • Tweaks and aesthetic improvements to all levels.

I'm always looking to hone my craft as a mapper -- reviews, suggestions, &c are greatly appreciated. Special thanks to hypersleep for feedback on v1.0 and help with Lua!

Amazing Work! Marathon C: Version 7

Synchronicity13 on Dec 2nd, 2008, Version Number 7

There's some excellent mapmaking going on here... Good differential shading, clever secrets, and some ingenious use of 5D space. I especially liked the addition of small details that really complete the level, like being able to flood the starting area in "Harpooning." The story's intriguing... can't wait to see more!
