Postmortem: Freeverse's Marathon 2: Durandal
12:32 PM | Evan Holt | 9 comments

Gamasutra has posted a seven page article on Freeverse's work on bringing Marathon 2: Durandal to the XBox 360. Written by Mark Levin of Freeverse, it covers bringing the cherished Mac classic to a new platform, the hurdles that were faced when porting the game and what changes were made to embrace new technologies.

The project was one that was oddly resonant with the history of both the company and its people. In the golden days of the mid-90ís, there was only one word worth speaking about games on the Macintosh, and it was "Marathon". Practically everyone who worked extensively with Macs or in an environment with a good number of them on a network knew and loved the game -- a category which includes most Freeverse personnel. When we landed it, we were excited not just for the chance to revisit an old favourite, and not just to port it, but for the chance to truly bring it into the modern era.
