Marathon: Resurrection Still Alive
5:00 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
IMG has been contacted by members of the Marathon: Resurrection team with reassurances that this project is still in full swing; they are currently without a webmaster, which explains the lack of updates to their site. Marathon: Resurrection is a project designed to bring the weapons, look and feel of the classic Marathon to Unreal Tournament as a "total conversion" mod. Their eventual goal is to update and re-create the entire solo and multiplayer experience of Bungie's classic shooter with the advantages of a modern 3D engine.

and personal life. We have a few candidates for webmaster. If you’re
interested and have experience with Flash, drop me a line.
However, we are still at work. Jason (our lead coder) just uploaded his
latest build (Jan. 16, 2001, see?). It is fantastic and very playable. The
M.75 is loads of fun (mainly because the reload code hasn’t been implemented
yet =). We just need someone to do some final animations, and we may be set
for a release very soon. If any 3DSMax people out there are sitting idle,
drop me a line.
